City Relay announces the appointment of Jack de Montaignac as COO

[London: 17 January 2020]: City Relay, London’s leading short let property management company, is delighted to announce the appointment of Jack de Montaignac as Chief Operating Officer (COO).

De Montaignac joined City Relay at the beginning of January to help scale operations and ensure business expansion plans are effectively delivered. Jack is the latest senior hire at City Relay, and his appointment completes the new leadership team that’s formed over the last six months following substantial investment secured in 2019.

Expansion plans for 2020 include opening four additional Reception Spaces so more short stay guests will benefit from the face-to-face personal service that City Relay offer. This will create opportunities to welcome more hosts extending beyond the 35 London postcodes the company currently operates.

Jack’s new role as COO is therefore critical to ensuring operational excellence is maintained as the business scales into new areas of London, providing hosts and guests with the exemplary service they’ve come to expect from City Relay.

Jack was previously the Chief Commercial Officer at Laundrapp, where achievements include launching a new platform to the market (initially in London and then into the other major cities in the UK), implementing new product lines throughout the business and driving international expansion.

Maxime Leufroy-Murat, City Relay Founder and CEO commented: “We’re very excited to welcome Jack to the team and leverage his operational experience as we grow our business in 2020. Jack has joined at a crucial time for City Relay as we expedite plans and replicate the success we’ve achieved to date further into Central, East and North London.”

“I am delighted to be joining City Relay” said Jack “it’s an incredibly exciting business, filled with dynamic people. The potential is enormous.”
