Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. As the year 2021 draws to a close, it’s the right time to reflect, celebrate and look to the future.
The year 2021 has been a momentous year for us at Mondee. Together, with the support of our stakeholders, we achieved the rare distinction of initiating a deal to go public and I find myself thinking of the last several months feeling proud and humbled by the incredible things the Mondee team of over 1,000 employees made happen for our company as well as for our customers, suppliers, partners, and investors; stakeholders that support our business vision as we continue to grow the company through the pandemic challenges and the unexpected setbacks of Delta and Omicron variants.
As they say, it’s not how you start but how you finish that matters. Together, the Mondee team, has built on our collective strengths. With our passionate determination, continued technology innovation, and commitment, we have transformed challenges into opportunities and converted the turbulent headwinds to supportive tailwinds. We have created clarity from unknowns, solidified foundations for the future, and energized transformation and innovation.
While I am proud of what we have achieved thus far, I am more excited about the year ahead. We already have a great head start for the next critical growth phase.
In the face of change and challenge, I encourage the whole Mondee team to find the passionate commitment to see opportunities where others see roadblocks. To be unafraid of trying new things and getting uncomfortable. Growth can only come from change, and the current times asked many of us to change in ways we could never anticipate. The way we respond as a company and adapt to that change makes all the difference.
I wish you and yours a happy and prosperous New Year.
Founder and CEO of Mondee
