ROOM2 NATIONWIDE EXPANSION GATHERS MOMENTUM WITH NEW MANAGING DIRECTOR APPOINTED.
Industry: Appointments       

Lamington Group, the creators of room2, the world’s first hometel brand and Lamington Serviced Apartments have taken a further step to strengthen their nationwide expansion with the exciting new appointment of Chris Minhinnett as the Managing Director.

(TRAVPR.COM) UNITED KINGDOM - May 30th, 2019 - Having spent ten years with esa serviced apartments, where he was responsible for a portfolio of over 350 apartments, Chris brings his 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.” He went on to say, “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 opened the world’s first Hometel in Southampton in June last year, building upon their initial concept property in Hammersmith. Hometels combine the services and security of a hotel, with the comfort and flexibility of your home, servicing a unique niche in the market between hotels, Airbnb and serviced apartments.

Building on a highly successful and award-winning first year of operation, the room2 brand has two further sites under development in Chiswick and Manchester, opening in late 2020 and 2021 respectively. They are currently actively seeking partners and sites to meet a vision of 5000 committed keys by 2030.
