New Hotel Concept
Rise identified with two other partners the potential opportunity to create an exciting super budget chain, namely Metro Inns. We negotiated and acquired 5 trading hotels from Accor with 345 bedrooms to launch the brand in 2007.

The product was repositioned and a solid management team established. Two hotels were sold in 2008 returning a 50% profit in less than 18 months. From 2011 to 2013 further hotels were added included former Travelodges in strategic locations. Resigned from the Board in 2013 but remain involved in acquisitions and advisory capacity
