23 April 2018, London: Aprirose, the real estate investment company, has appointed Daren Knipe as Managing Director to oversee their Milton Pub & Tavern portfolio.
The portfolio comprises 73 assets across the UK in England, Scotland and Wales. Daren will work with LT Management Services whom Aprirose appointed last year to manage the assets.
Daren joins Aprirose from LT Management itself, where he was Operations Director for nine years, working for clients such as Punch Taverns and Enterprise Inns as well as PWC and a number of investment clients. Daren has also worked at a number of pub companies including Punch Taverns and S&N before joining LT Management.
Gary Jones, Chief Operating Officer at Aprirose, said: “Daren brings with him a wide range of expertise in the pub sector. His experience and strong relationship with LT Management makes him the ideal fit to oversee our Milton Pubs & Taverns portfolio. We have a clear structured business strategy for our pubs and Daren’s appointment will allow him to play a key role in how we move forward with this business.”
Daren Knipe, Managing Director at Aprirose, said: “The acquisition of Milton Pubs & Taverns and the subsequent strategy for the asset management of these pubs is a sign of the more hands on approach Aprirose are taking with their portfolio. As Aprirose continues to go grow and evolve its business I look forward to playing a part in its development and to working with their best in class team to manage the portfolio.”
