We are absolutely thrilled to announce the appointment of Paul Lynch as our Product and Development DirectorPaul has a 20-year track record of managing tech development and information security at a range of organisations including Sky and, most recently, ITV where he was Group Chief Information and Security Officer (CISO) and Group Technology DirectorHe will be pivotal in moving us forward to realise our ambitious product development roadmap.

Situ's Product and Development Director

Paul will report to our Founder and MD, Phil Stapleton, working alongside our recently appointed Commercial Director, Rebecca Gonzaga (previously at SIRVA BGRS Worldwide). Paul’s years of expertise in modernising, streamlining, and adapting platforms and systems to drive efficiencies and save money – ultimately delivering positive outcomes for customers – will be integral in helping us to deliver on all our future growth plans.

Phil says, “It’s been a long search to find just the right person to join the Situ team and help us take the business forward. Paul is the perfect fit with his customer-centric approach to using technology to resolve problems and make everyday transactions effortless. He is going to be a game changer not just for Situ, our clients, and our partners – but for the wider serviced accommodation sector as well.”

We believe we have already established ourselves as somewhat of a leader in the serviced accommodation sector when it comes to building accessible tech platforms and systems that smooth and ease the sourcing and booking process. Paul will now lead the continued advancement of these cloud-based proprietary systems – taking them to another level of ‘humanisation’ with the aim of making them as easy and intuitive to use as globally familiar applications such as WhatsApp. How brilliant is that?!

Rebecca is very much looking forward to working alongside Paul and says, “We are super excited Paul chose to join our business. Paul brings a wealth of experience in leading substantial teams and technology enhancements, innovation, and projects. The knowledge he has gained from his work in media is extremely valuable in terms of transforming technology into something that is engaging and easily understandable for everyone. As the industry shifts its attention to emerging AI technologies and the need to adapt to on-demand services, Paul’s composed and rational approach is a breath of fresh air.”

Already making a difference within his first weeks in the role, Paul is on record as saying, “I’m thrilled to be joining the team at Situ who have been driving exceptional outcomes for our partners and clients. The combination of a positive culture, great product, and laser focus on service and innovation are the perfect ingredients for the next stage of growth.”

Welcome Paul, it’s great to have you on the team.
