UK: Lamington Group, the creators of the room2 brand, has appointed Chris Minhinnett as managing director.

Having spent ten years with esa serviced apartments, where he was responsible for a portfolio of over 350 apartments, Minhinnett brings extensive knowledge, expertise and leadership to the Lamington team.

He said: "I'm delighted to be joining Lamington and room2. The room2 product in particular is quite unique, and brings much needed innovation to the industry. I look forward to guiding the ongoing development of this and the operational teams". The move will help to further strengthen the operating business and also enable current managing director, Robert Godwin to focus extensively on the national rollout and development of the room2 brand."

Robert Godwin said: "It's an exciting phase of growth for our room2 brand and portfolio. I'm pleased to have Chris on board, allowing me to step back from the day-to-day business and focus primarily on fundraising and development opportunities from a leasing and acquisition perspective. We're looking forward to a number of exciting announcements later in the year regarding the development of the room2 brand and with Chris' experience, I am confident we can fully maximise these opportunities when they come to fruition."

room2 has sites open in Southampton and Hammersmith, with two further sites under development in Chiswick and Manchester, opening in late 2020 and 2021 respectively. The brand is actively seeking partners and sites to meet a vision of 5000 committed keys by 2030.
