About SACO The Serviced Apartment Company

SACO are one of the UK’s leading providers of serviced apartments, opening the door to more than 80,000 apartments in 220 destinations worldwide.

The company aims to offer a great-value, stylish alternative to hotels for business and leisure travellers across the globe, and to re-shape the hospitality industry for the better.

Formed more than 18 years ago, SACO is dedicated to ensuring guest have everything they need to work, relax or entertain in style.

Their core values are to be ambitious, do the right thing and to have great team spirit. These beliefs are backed up in the working culture they have created for their staff. Team spirit, for example, is bolstered by the use of ‘SACO stars’, which are sent between employees to say ‘thank you’ for a job well done.

SACO is led by Stephen Hanton, CEO Commercial, who has a consultative and collaborative approach to leading the business, believing more in listening rather than talking, and encouraging the senior management team to take a similar approach.
