Boom appoints Tamir to advisory board

US: Boom, an artificial intelligence [AI] platform for the short-term rental sector, has appointed Moshe Tamir, the former head of innovation at Generali Global Assistance, to its advisory board in its latest strategic hire. 

Tamir, who brings with him over 20 years of experience in fintech and insurtech, is the founder and managing director of global innovation advisory Axell, which helps corporate financial services accelerate their digital transformations.

Prior to launching Axell in 2018, he spent five years at Generali – one of the largest insurance and asset management providers in the world – as the firm’s global head of digital transformation and innovation. He is credited with designing and launching innovative global digital solutions and business models, leveraging strategic partnerships, and achieving global recognition for innovation in the insurance sector.

At Boom, Tamir will advise on the development and deployment of advanced AI technologies, providing strategic guidance to further enhance property management operations for Boom’s growing client base. He joins Boom at a pivotal moment in the company’s continued growth as demand for AI-driven property management solutions among short-term rental property managers continues to intensify.

Tamir said: “Boom is on the brink of changing everything in the short-term rental space. The potential for AI to revolutionise property management is immense.

“I look forward to working with the team to drive innovation with a human touch and get more property managers streamlining their operations with this next-level tech,” added Tamir.

Shahar Goldboim, founder and CEO of Boom, said: “Moshe’s expertise in fintech and insurtech is unparalleled and his vision aligns perfectly with our goals at Boom. With Moshe’s guidance joining our chair, Ian Carter, and others on our advisory board, we are confident that Boom is ready to change the game in property management.”

The latest strategic hire comes after Boom last month announced Ian Carter, Hilton’s former president of global operations, as chairman of its advisory board.

Launched in 2023, Boom is an AI-driven tool that sits over the top of a property manager’s existing property management software. The platform acts as a ‘virtual workforce’ that automates day-to-day decision-making, freeing up time and headspace for property managers, who can instead focus on strategy and portfolio growth.

The tool automatically coordinates check-ins, responds to guest queries, schedules and predicts maintenance tasks and repairs, and takes care of accounting – all autonomously and without the input of a human property manager.
