Tamar van de Paal joins Origin as the COO and cofounder at quite an opportune time. Throughout 2020 we’ve been working on R&D to provide tailored and unique travel experiences for Origin members, and as we grow into 2021 Tamar brings a wealth of highly relevant experience to empower our next chapter.
Over the last two decades, Tamar has led initiatives in marketing, international growth, operations, and community building at Google, Nextdoor, Spotzer, and Wunderman.
At Origin, Tamar will oversee operations, marketing, and community building. He’ll prepare Origin operationally for growth, where algorithms will supercharge the travel team so they can scale and become even better at providing best-in-class experiences.
Tamar has lived in five countries on three continents, and is a travel aficionado like most of the team at Origin. He enjoys long road trips with his family, as well as short cultural and foodie explorations.
Tamar joins an experienced team at Origin. His cofounder and CEO, Eli Bressert, has led R&D, data science, and engineering teams at Stitch Fix, Netflix, Apple, and Convoy. With Eli’s knowledge and experience in human-in-the-loop AI/ML solutions and recommendation engines, and Tamar’s wealth of experience, we’re set for rapid growth and new markets in 2021 and beyond.
Origin organizes your trips or family holidays, completely tailored to your preferences. By combining the human touch of our experienced travel curators with a highly-automated platform, we can quickly put together a unique proposal for your next travel adventure. Together with you we fine tune your itinerary, and allow you to book every flight, hotel, restaurant and bungee-jump at once, with a single click.
We do this by super-powering our travel curators with AI/ML solutions that level up their quality of service and scalability. This is especially important during these trying times where accessing great experiences through travel is complex due to COVID19.
