Marcus is the founder and Chairman of the Habicus Group, which incorporates the serviced apartment businesses of SilverDoor Apartments, Citybase Apartments, Central London Apartments and the Orbital Platforms suite of technology systems. He founded SilverDoor in early 2000 and he and his wife, Angie, are together the owners of the company and of the wider group.
Marcus is originally a Lancastrian from Preston, and was schooled in Blackburn. His early career was in the property and construction industries, and having completed a MSc in Building Heritage and Conservation, he ventured to London in early 2000 and founded the company. Since then SilverDoor has grown to become the largest independent serviced apartment agency in the world, with offices in London, Lancaster, Singapore, Denver and Hyderabad.
As the group Chairman, Marcus is ultimately responsible for the group’s strategic growth and business planning strategies. Marcus and Angie have two teenage sons and live in the leafy Chiltern Hills of Buckinghamshire. They are all cricket-mad.
