Christian Lee was recruited by Mint House Founder and previous CEO, Will Lucas, to further scale and drive its next phase of growth.
Mint House, leading premium hospitality brand offering apartment-style amenities just announced the appointment of Christian Lee as Chief Executive Officer. Lee’s career spans 25 years of operations, finance, strategy, and corporate development roles at both disruptive startups and Fortune 100 Companies, including Transfix – where Lee most recently served as Chief Financial Officer – and WeWork Asia, where he grew the business from four locations to more than two hundred across 25 cities in ten countries. Lee was recruited by Mint House Founder and previous CEO, Will Lucas, to further scale and drive its next phase of growth.
Mint House operates over 25 properties across 16 markets, serving business and leisure travelers with design-forward spaces that offer the amenities and conveniences of a home with the service, consistency and reliability of a high-end hotel (a concept the brand refers to as “residential hospitality”).
Just this past month, Mint House opened a new location in downtown Birmingham and expanded their footprint by 20% in their flagship location in New York City (where they also unveiled a new design brief); and since the end of 2022, they’ve opened locations in Scottsdale, Alexandria and a third property in Philadelphia. They will be opening a new-build property in St Petersburg, Florida, this Spring.
“I’m thrilled to join Mint House – the company’s unique position at the intersection of real estate and hospitality, powered by technology, has created immense value for both markets. The past few years have ushered forward a new era for travelers – one that Mint House was built for. By providing guests with a seamless experience for trips that blend work and leisure, and landlords with a higher NOI than they see traditionally, Mint House is positioned to lead in this market,” said Lee, CEO of Mint House.
