Ashley Bellview is Senior Director of Employee, Executive and Thought Leadership Communications at Booking.com. In this role she is responsible for overseeing employee, executive and thought leadership communications. Having first established a robust internal communication function at Booking.com, her current focus is discovering new ways to drive employee engagement, build brand advocacy and increase corporate participation in key industry topics.
Before joining Booking.com in 2014, Ashley worked at the intersection of technology, communication and hospitality, helping new businesses scale through digital marketing channels and emerging technologies. Always curious, Ashley has also been a butcher’s apprentice, a field reporter, a bartender and a novice pyrotechnic operator. Her least favourite part of any romantic comedy is the third-act misunderstanding, and she holds a bachelor’s degree in linguistics from the University of Texas at Austin.
Originally from Austin, Texas, Ashley has lived and worked in multiple cities across the world. Leaving New York City before it made her hard and Northern California before it made her soft, she’s now sought a happy medium in her home in Amsterdam.
