Real estate investment company Aprirose has appointed Richard Moore group chief executive of its Almarose hotel management platform.

Moore most recently served as area senior vice-president UK, Ireland and Western Europe for Radisson Hotel Group. He has also previously held roles including managing director of director of hotel consultancy services for CBRE Hotels and area senior vice president at Radisson Hotel Group.

Moore will lead and develop Almarose as the business continues to look for opportunities to grow and invest in its portfolio. Aprirose launched the company in February 2019 to create a dedicated team to manage assets under its ownership.

Moore said: “As a new entity, a year into its journey, the company has clear aspirations for growth, a best in class team and a committed parent company dedicated to operational excellence and delivering strong results. There is ample opportunity available to build on the strength of the hugely professional management in place. I look forward to working alongside Aprirose, and to lead the team at Almarose, to develop this agile and ambitious business.”

Manish Gudka, chief executive of Aprirose, said: “[Moore’s] extensive experience in the UK and Europe, alongside his strong relationships working with hotel groups and third-party brands, makes him perfectly placed to fulfil this role.”

Almarose manages 20 properties within its portfolio, including 14 QHotels which Aprirose acquired in September 2017, five DoubleTree by Hilton hotels and the Nottingham Belfry.
