London-based property investor Aprirose has appointed Philip Gardner as commercial director to oversee the sales, marketing and revenue disciplines of its new hotel management platform.
Gardner joins Aprirose from Intercontinental Hotel Group (IHG) Europe where he was the vice president leading the revenue management team.
'Philip’s experience in the hotel sector and in the commercial roles he has held make him a strong addition to the team running our new hotel management platform,' said Tim Shearman, CEO Hotels, Aprirose.
'As we look to grow the business Philip will be a great asset given his extensive knowledge and experience, specifically in sales and revenue management within the hotel sector,' added Shearman.
Gardner’s appointment follows the launch of Aprirose’s new hotel operating platform last month, which will be operated alongside Kew Green Hotels, who will provide systems and support whilst the new service is established.
'The recent launch of our new hotel management platform makes it an exciting time to be joining Aprirose’s hotel team,' said Gardner.
'The team at Aprirose and Kew Green Hotels involved in the management platform is best-in-class and will provide me with the opportunity to work with some of the sector’s leading experts,' Gardner concluded.
