Darwin Holiday Parks appoint in-house team to manage portfolio

Maya Asset Management LLP would like to announce that as of 13th December 2011, they have ceased to manage Darwin Holiday Parks on behalf of The Darwin Leisure Property Fund, having been in a transition period since 1st December supporting Darwin while they moved to complete the formal handover.

2011 has seen a number of holiday parks put up for sale by Darwin, who have moved to appoint their own in-house management team that will continue to oversee their remaining holiday park portfolio.  

Maya Asset Management, who were brought in by KPMG and Santander in 2010 to advise on the sale of Pontins, have overseen a successful twelve months for Darwin. Despite the current economic climate, the holiday park operator significantly outperformed the market.

CEO of Maya Asset Management, Victoria Brannen says, “We would like to thank the highly committed staff at the Darwin parks, who have worked incredibly hard with great enthusiasm and have succeeded in more than mitigating the impact of the large investments made by competing park operators. We feel proud of what we have achieved together during challenging times, and are sure that we have created a strong foundation for the continued future success of the parks and that 2012 will prove to be another good year.”

Brannen continues, “Maya will be spending more time on our new modular solutions, which is attracting a lot of interest to those wishing to access bespoke operational management solutions. We are also delighted to announce a new service architecture, as highlighted with the launch of our new website, and look forward to continuing our work with our other current clients.”

A spokesperson for Darwin said, “We would like to wish the Maya team well in the future and continued success with its other clients.”
