National Corporate Housing Acquires BridgeStreet’s Global Business Solutions Agency in EMEA and APAC
GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO – December 8, 2020 – National Corporate Housing, a global leader in corporate furnished housing, has announced the acquisition of BridgeStreet’s Agency Business in the EMEA and APAC regions. The acquisition through an affiliated company represents National's continued global expansion in the APAC and EMEA markets to meet customer demand for comprehensive international accommodation solutions for business travelers.
Despite a challenging market for the serviced apartment and corporate housing industries in 2020, National has continued to position itself to become the leading provider of temporary business housing worldwide by expanding in EMEA and APAC as well as through the continued acquisition of inventory in the US. The company has successfully provided accommodation solutions for its clients in more than 80 countries worldwide. As other corporate housing firms announce reduced service offerings, National continues to demonstrate its commitment to high-touch service around the globe.
The acquisition of BridgeStreet’s international agency business brings additional industry veterans in EMEA and APAC to National's global roster of highly experienced corporate housing and serviced apartment professionals. Cara Lingle, Senior Vice President of BridgeStreet Global Business Solutions, will continue to lead the BridgeStreet team in EMEA and APAC. Current guests and clients of the Agency Business being acquired can expect a swift and smooth transition without disruption.
"We are excited to work with this talented group of professionals," explains Tom Atchison, National's Chief Executive Officer. "We know that BridgeStreet’s and National's service models are highly compatible, and we're confident that guests and clients alike will benefit from the two organizations coming together."
