Owner and operator of holiday parks | www.bridgeleisure.com
Bridge Leisure is an owner and operator of holiday parks in the UK. Led by CEO Andrew Howe, the group currently owns and operates eight parks comprising a high quality selection of small (150-300 pitch) scenic parks in attractive locations and larger all-inclusive parks with more extensive central facilities. Bridge Leisure operates in the highly fragmented caravan park sector, an attractive market with high barriers to entry. Phoenix invested in Bridge Leisure in January 2015.
Phoenix and the management team are focusing on driving strong organic growth in existing parks through an expansion in pitch numbers, as well as identifying, acquiring and growing additional parks to form a larger group. Acquisition opportunities have been sourced and targeted and Phoenix has provided funding for Bridge Leisure’s two most recent bolt-on acquisitions. Since the investment in 2015, an experienced non-executive director has joined the board.
"As Chief Executive I want to ensure everyone connected to the business adds value. Funding can be obtained from many sources but Phoenix have brought much more than that to the table; the experience that Sandy and Will add to our board, both sector specific and beyond, has been a great benefit to us.”
