Head Office Team
Andrew Landsburgh (Andy)
Founder and Managing Director
Andy graduated with a law degree and has since worked as hard as possible not to have to be a lawyer. He is really passionate about business and getting things right for guests, staff and investors. The basic principle is that if CODE is great for guests, it will be great for staff and investors as well. His dream is to have many CODEs around the world and has been fortunate enough to visit many cities in Europe, America and Asia. Andy and his wife (and now baby Sam) love a city break. His family are kind enough to indulge his passion and let him walk about cool hostels in every city they visit.
Favourite places: New York and Bangkok
Jamie is a qualified engineer and his last job was creating wave machines – basically giant “gnarly waves”. Andy asked him to try his hand at designing sleeping pods for CODE and the rest is history. Jamie handles all new projects for CODE and is constantly looking at new design concepts that will take CODE to the next level in hostel/podtel hospitality.
Favourite places: Amsterdam and Bali
Troy works with our local managers on the revenue management side of the business. He previously held a senior role at Booking.com but then saw the light to come and work with the underdog. Troy is very knowledgeable on revenue and online channel management. He’s excited to help CODE grow across the world and maybe even one day to his native country South Africa. In the meantime, he enjoys coaching rugby and beers with the team on a Friday – it’s the small things in life Troy 😉
Favourite places: African bush and Hawaii
Denise heads up the Accounts for CODE. A highly proficient accountant, Denise is constantly trying to streamline the process and accounting function to make CODE ready for growth and expansion. Hailing from Malta, she moved to Edinburgh for the temperate climate and year round sunshine 😉
