How time flies! Although it feels like only yesterday that our Denver office first opened its doors, our Americas team - comprised of Rafaela, Rob, Fernando and Elliot - are all celebrating the end of their first year in Colorado.
From hosting our first US industry event in April, to attending key corporate housing events such as the CHPA Women’s Forum and Worldwide ERC Global Workforce Symposium, our team members in Denver have fully immersed themselves in the Americas.
Opening an office in Denver has provided SilverDoor clients and partners with a number of benefits. As well as providing our clients with complete global coverage and complementing our other international offices, our Americas office has enabled us to grow and strengthen relationships with existing clients who are based in the Americas. This is quantifiable from the 891 new properties we have added to our website in the past year.
Our growing presence in the region is tangible. We were highly commended in the Corporate Housing Provider of the Year category at the FEM Americas EMMAs awards in May 2019- an achievement we are incredibly proud of considering our office had only been open for a few months at the time.
Our Regional Head - Americas, Rafaela Baraldi, said “Our first year in Denver has been extremely encouraging! Having seen our team develop in the way it has and achieve the results we have, I could not be more proud and can only see the team moving from strength to strength in 2020 and beyond.”
Having grown exponentially since day one, our team in Denver has helped SilverDoor see a 172% increase in revenue in the US and a 215% increase in Brazil, as well as securing bookings in over 80 cities worldwide. This is an extremely impressive effort considering the short time in which the office has been operating and is testament to the hard work and effort put in by Rafaela and her team.
With established offices in London, Lancaster, Singapore, Hyderabad and now Denver, we are marking the start of the new decade in fantastic fashion and look forward to continuing this trend of year on year success throughout the decade.
