Rob Karp is the Founder and CEO of MilesAhead, a luxury travel concierge that will produce over $5 million in travel sales during 2017. He is a 20-year old Junior at Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration. In 2017, Travel + Leisure named Rob one of their Rising Stars.
Rob founded MilesAhead as a sophomore in high school, initially helping family and friends turn their frequent flyer miles into nearly free plane tickets for their family trips. He ran it as a one man shop until coming to Cornell in August 2015.
Since hiring his first employee soon after, Rob has grown MilesAhead into a ten-person organization, sporting part-time college students to full time adults. Rob and his team have visited over 300 hotels since 2016, from Italy to Bora Bora to Japan, and utilize their time off from school to see the world and take that first-hand knowledge back to their over 500 clients. Rob has been featured in various news outlets, including Fortune, Forbes, Bloomberg TV and various Cornell publications. He looks forward to continuing with MilesAhead after college and following his dream to create the world’s best travel advisor.
