Jake’s career in hospitality started in food and beverage, managing several high-profile restaurants in London’s West End. During a career break in 2013, Jake was introduced to serviced apartments at Go Native. Under the wing of Kim Ashmore (ASAP’S very own Global Partnerships Manager), Jake rose up to Head of Agency Sales and has never looked back. Since then, with a focus on customer service and agency sales, Jake has worked for Cycas Hospitality, assisting in the openings of Residence Inn Amsterdam, Residence Inn London Bridge, South Point Suites, and Residence Inn London Kensington. Jake can currently be found managing apartment sales for Marlin Apartments, where his pro-active approach and holistic sales strategy has helped to increase sales, build relationships, and attract many new clients in his short time there.
Jake is delighted to be working with ASAP on the 2020 convention and is looking forward to catching up with old friends, making new ones, and sharing the love for this fantastic association and our wonderful hospitality industry.
