A new consultancy, Accessio, has launched to help the travel industry better serve people with disabilities.
Founded by Mitch Gross and Laurent Roffe, Accessio is focused on helping companies create accessible travel products, services and programs.
While Roffe has been working in accessible travel for the past decade, Gross has been consulting in recent years. He was previously the president of Travelport in the Americas and president of Travelex Insurance Services.
"Corporate leaders are focusing on accessibility as an important part of their diversity, equity and inclusion efforts. The segment is large, growing and profitable, and technology has made it easier, faster and less expensive to bring great solutions to market," Gross said in a statement. "It's a true opportunity to do well by doing good, as long as companies deliver to the very unique needs and culture of this special audience."
