Isaac will be an immediate voice in conversations around STR methodology as well as our ongoing product development in the CoStar platform. Long-term, he'll contribute to the evolution of the holistic solution we will deliver to the industry."

Meanwhile, Collazo commented, "The opportunity to work with the premier lodging industry leader to further strengthen its contributions is a dream come true. I believe my 30-plus years of working with STR and its data will provide an additional level of understanding that will enable us to further advance the comprehensive solutions that empower our industry. STR's industry leadership is more important than ever given the impact of COVID-19. I am thrilled to be a part of the STR and CoStar Group teams."
