Aspects is one of the leading self-catering accommodation providers in Cornwall and Una's developers say it took him on to grow Escape's holiday rental plan.
David Cole, director of CC Leisure Concepts Ltd, said: "For us, Damian is quite simply Mr St Ives. Not only has he worked at a successful accommodation provider and has a wealth of experience and knowledge when it comes to holiday lets, he is fully integrated into the St Ives and Carbis Bay community, which is extremely valuable for selling the whole Una St Ives holiday experience to our guests."
Mr Sargent said: "I am delighted to be joining the team at Una St Ives. The retreat is setting high standards for Cornwall and for future property owners and I'm already sharing my passion and knowledge of the area and my experience within the tourism industry to ensure Una St Ives achieves the standards it sets out.
"As founder and organiser of the St Ives Food and Drink Festival, Tate St Ives business member and steering group member for the St Ives BID, I have an ear to the ground."
