CEO & Founder - OD Group
Marc Rahola is CEO and Founder of OD Group, a holding company that includes business in hospitality, real estate, private equity, construction, architecture and engineering, and agriculture. Current projects see the group managing and developing hotels across a range of locations including Ibiza, Mallorca, Barcelona and Côte d’Azur.
Marc was born in Barcelona into a family of entrepreneurs: his father Victor Rahola, a prestigious architect; and his mother Mayte Matutes, a well-respected interior designer. He later went on to join the wider family hospitality business, Palladium Hotel Group, in 1998. During his 10 years there, he was part of a huge expansion which saw the business invest more than $500 million to grow to over 3,000 keys. Marc’s role involved creating and shaping teams in Mexico, Jamaica, Brazil, Italy and developing processes including acquisition, planning, licensing, and construction. In 2009, Marc founded OD Group based on the initials of his first hotel, Ocean Drive in Ibiza. From that first hotel, Marc and his team has built a collection that sees each hotel as an experiential hub, connecting guests to their surroundings and in turn enriching their stay.
