George Sell George Sell Uploaded 26 April 2018


UK: Claire Barrie has been appointed to oversee sales in the EMEA region for BridgeStreet.

Barrie has held key positions throughout her career including regional manager, sales director and now VP of sales EMEA with BridgeStreet, as well as positions with Oakwood Worldwide and Clarendon Serviced Apartments. She was appointed supplier board director to ITM (Industry of Travel Management) in 2016 and has a Global Mobility Specialist (GMS) designation which is a program developed for global mobility and service partners to multinational organisations.

Barrie said: "Change hasn't been easy for the extended stay market in recent years. Agile and disruptive entrants have challenged the status quo which has led to a fundamental technological evolution. BridgeStreet confidently embraced technology which enhanced their core promise, guarantee and duty of care - and I've seen the market impact. I believe their platform reflects the consciousness of today's modern traveler and the future of flexible accommodations. There's an extraordinary opportunity to change business travel and make global mobility a rewarding experience. This is a company where I knew I would be supported by a team that's never satisfied with status quo. We are firmly, and enthusiastically, committed to the positive disruption that we bring to this industry."

Michael Snapkoski, BridgeStreet's SVP of revenue generation, said: "Last year, we committed to developing the industry's deepest bench as our technology platform was proven. Claire understands how critical this evolution is to building the strongest solution for Alternative Accommodations and Global Relocation. We are so fortunate to welcome Claire's dynamic experience and wisdom. After all, it's our strength of leadership that makes BridgeStreet's pioneering a reality."
