Anthony Canning started his professional career as an estate agent managing a portfolio of properties before turning his attention to the holiday industry aged 24. Anthony’s first big role was to manage a hire fleet of 50-holiday lodges, it quickly became evident that the current market-leading companies were not offering the personal service that he believed his business deserved, from this humble beginning CMS Staycations was born.

Stuart Millar started his career in the Royal Navy picking up vital operational skills that would serve I’m well in day to day life. After 11 years of service, Stuart transferred his skillset to hospitality management, which lead to a successful career in the hotel and leisure industry. Seeking new challenges Stuart joined Anthony to drive the business forward, Stuart’s operational know-how was a major factor in the development of CMS platforms that we operate today.

Clare Stones (MAAT FCCA, BSC.HONS) makes up the CMS powerhouse! Clare graduated as a certified accountant in 2004 working for a well-renowned firm in York, England. After a career break to raise her two children she returned to full-time work, Anthony & Stuart were very keen to recruit Clare into the business and she agreed to become a partner. Clare not only brings an abundance of experience in the accountancy world but will often be seen visiting parks training staff and bringing her warm welcoming smile to guests.
