MilesAhead is a luxury travel concierge that began in 2012 with CEO & Founder, Rob Karp. At an early age, Rob developed a passion for the travel industry and a drive for customer experience. As he progressed in age, Rob learned about the power of points. He continued to develop his airline knowledge and began helping out family and friends with their travel in his spare time.

What began as Rob's hobby and passion developed into the company it is today. Rob purchased the software needed to run the company with the $600 he had from soccer refereeing and hasn't looked back since. The company grew instantly once Rob started at Cornell University, where he met most of today's employees in the School of Hotel Administration. Now, MilesAhead consists of ten dedicated and passionate employees all over the country.
