National Announces Accelerated International Expansion in EMEA and APAC
GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO – June 29, 2020 – National Corporate Housing, a global leader in corporate furnished housing, has announced an accelerated international expansion in the APAC and EMEA markets with the onboarding of new key team members in both regions.
Alexandra Cowan, GMS, has joined National in London as the Operations Director, EMEA. Her career in the hospitality industry spans four decades. Cowan has won the respect of her peers, clients, and guests in the hotel industry, with 3rd party agencies, and in the corporate housing industry across the EMEA region.
"I am excited to join National as they embark on this global expansion. I am passionate about how best to serve each customer. With my focus on service, process, and scalability, I look forward to accomplishing great things with National," Cowan said.
Jacqueline Ang, GMS, has joined National in Singapore as the Operations Director, Asia Pacific. Her career of more than thirty years includes tremendous success in the hospitality and service industries. Ang is fluent in both English and Mandarin and earned the designation "Global Mobility Specialist" in 2013 through the highly respected Employee Relocation Council.
"I am thrilled to be part of a dynamic team where National's vision, culture, and values resonate with me. Looking forward to the journey ahead," said Ang.
National's expansion into EMEA and APAC is led by Tom Meertens, National's Chief Operating Officer, International. Meertens is a business development veteran with proven global experience. Since joining National in 2018, he has successfully moved National's expansion forward ahead of schedule, despite challenging global market conditions. With the addition of Cowan and Ang, National can now serve the needs of clients, guests, and property partners with in-region support.
"Accommodation solutions outside North America are increasingly in demand, and we have a tremendous opportunity to meet that need around the world," said Meertens. "We welcome the opportunity to deepen our partnerships with global clients who have accommodation outside North America. Alexandra and Jacqueline are the perfect fit to help National bring our award-winning service to EMEA and APAC."
Just weeks ago, National announced its expansion into the APAC market, hiring staff in Singapore and the Philippines. National's expansion announcement comes as other corporate housing firms announce reduced service offerings or third-party contract servicing worldwide.
