Quest appoints new CEO

Quest Serviced Apartments has appointed a new chief executive officer, hired from within the company.

Zed Sanjana, the general manager of the company since 2011, will be the new CEO.

The role of CEO had formerly been filled by executive chairman Paul Constantinou since he founded the business 25 years ago. He will continue as executive chairman.

Constantinou says it was important to separate the two roles because of the rapid expansion of the business over the last decade.

“There comes a point in the life-cycle of every successful business when rapid growth means you must take stock and work out the best way for the business to move forward,” Constantinou says.

“This appointment will enable me to focus on the strategic direction and growth of the Quest Franchise Network, whilst Zed and his team oversee the day-to-day operational aspects of the business.

The business now has more than 150 properties across Australia, New Zealand and Fiji.

Sanjana says he was looking forward to a new challenge.

“The Quest brand is already one of the strongest amongst business travellers. My appointment now leaves Paul free to accelerate the company’s growth while I manage and balance the needs of our franchisees, employees and guests.”
