Co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer
Christina Suriadjaja is the Co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer of Travelio.com, an alternative accommodation online booking platform that actively manages the secondary and investment homes of individuals and property developers throughout Indonesia. It is an indirect subsidiary of PT Surya Semesta Internusa, the family business in which Christina is a third-generation member.
Christina started Travelio.com at the age of 23 after deferring graduate school enrollment at Cornell University for the third year, leaving her full-time job as a fast-track management trainee at Intercontinental Hotels Group’s Singapore headquarters.
As a former professional netball and soccer player for Singapore’s national team, Christina credits the discipline, perseverance and determination she learned in sports with helping her launch an e-commerce/property management company in Indonesia, where the concept is still at an early stage. Her goal is for Travelio.com to be Indonesia’s top alternative accommodation booking platform in terms of inventory market share by the end of 2017.
