Ryan Bonner, Regional General Manager, Supercity Aparthotels; Darryl Walker, Group Director of Distribution and Partner Network, edyn; and Rebecca Gonzaga, Managing Director, Situ, have joined the ASAP Advisory Board, effective 1 September.
The Association of Serviced Apartment Providers (ASAP), the not-for-profit trade body for the serviced accommodation sector, welcomes three new members to add to its Advisory Board at a time of growth in the industry.
James Foice, ASAP CEO, says: “With such a strong membership, the work we’re currently involved in with policymakers, and the release of our groundbreaking market insights report
on serviced apartments in the UK in the next two months, this is a crucial time for a strong and committed Board to shape the way forward for the Association. “We had two outstanding applications to represent Serviced Apartment Operators on the ASAP Advisory Board. The Board unanimously voted to accept both, and we’re delighted that both Darryl Walker of edyn and Supercity’s Ryan Bonner accepted. They took up their posts on September 1st, and join their first Board meeting in London on September 14th.”
This year ASAP Membership has been extended to include serviced apartment booking agents, and the decision was taken to create an additional (non-voting) seat on the board for an ASAP Agent Member. Following a membership vote, Rebecca Gonzaga from Situ was elected to represent this new section of Agent membership.
ASAP Chair Steve Lowy, CEO of Anglo Educational Services and Founder / CEO of The Residence Apartments, says: “We’re delighted to welcome Rebecca, Darryl and Ryan to the board. They are all leaders in their field and have already brought valuable insights and expertise to the ASAP focus groups over the past year. ”
Foice echoes the positivity: “As an Association, and with the current Board’s input, we have formed numerous plans for the coming years; and with the help of the new members, I know we’ll get there quicker.”
