Episode 91: Embrace fear — don’t be paralyzed, with Eric Douay.
Eric Douay started his career in the hospitality industry, for the French multi-national hotels company, Accor Group, in Paris and progressed quickly to open their first sales & marketing office in Canada.
In 1997, he created D-TOUR MARKETING Inc., a company specialized in sales & marketing for international hotels chains that wanted to be present in Canada, without all the headaches of opening their own Canadian offices. The company was also involved in property development in Canada, the United States, and the Caribbean.
In 2007, Eric created a new core business, on top of his existing business, by offering payments solutions to the hospitality, travel and tourism industry. His company now optimizes payment processing systems for private clients and has helped hundreds of merchants collectively generate over $1 billion of accumulated transactions volume, while saving serious money in the process.
