John Wagner is an entrepreneur with hands-on skills in hotel management and real estate investment and can be considered a pioneer of the extended stay hotel and dual-branded hotel concepts in Europe.
Prior to co-founding Cycas Hospitality, John was VP at IHG, responsible for the Staybridge Suites brand in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region. He was also once responsible for sales and marketing at Marriott’s Residence Inn brand during its early days of development in the US. John’s abilities have meant that big brands such as IHG and Marriott, and others, have recognised the award-winning service excellence evident at all Cycas operated properties, and are keen to partner with Cycas Hospitality. His approach and passion for the extended stay market makes him a leader who is as enthusiastic about passing on his skills and vision, as he is for high Trip Advisor rankings for the hotels he owns and manages.
