UK: Apartment agency SilverDoor has promoted Stuart Winstone to group CEO.

Winstone said: “In taking up this appointment, I recognise that our business, and the whole world, has been sent an enormous challenge and my primary focus over the coming months is to guide us through this period and come out stronger for it. With the outstanding team we have here at SilverDoor, I believe we will come out of it, and more resilient than before. I’m really encouraged, for instance, when I see that our APAC region is already starting to show signs of recovery."

“I want to reassure all our partners and clients that we are still here for them, and will be here and even better equipped to hit the ground running when widespread global travel resumes. SilverDoor continues to have ambitious growth plans. Over the last year, and with the support of the owners, Directors and Senior Management Team, we have prepared and implemented a new five year business plan packed full of goals that I would like us to achieve over the coming years. We have planned extensive investment in our people, our technology, new office facilities, online booking and systems integrations to enable more clients to access our portfolio instantly.We hope to grow all our five global offices; the next few years will see the refurbishment of our new Lancaster office, we intend to do the same in London, and expect both our APAC and Americas offices to be expanding significantly," he added.

Founder and managing director Marcus Angell will take on the role of chairman. He said: “I have had the most truly fabulous 20 years as the managing director of SilverDoor Apartments. I’m equally looking forward to many, many more years ahead as its company chairman. Thank you to every single one of you in our wide SilverDoor family for your business, support and commitment over the past two decades. Angie and I couldn’t be happier to be announcing Stuart’s promotion today. The redefinition of my role feels natural and right and I am very much looking forward to supporting Stuart to focus on leading SilverDoor into its next 20 years. Stuart has been at my right hand for the last 13 years, he knows the hospitality and business travel industry and our business inside out and I could not think of a steadier pair of hands to guide us through this difficult period and come out stronger for it.”

SilverDoor was the winner of the Best Agent, RMC or TMC category at the 2020 Serviced Apartment Awards.
