Director Kevin Clarence, his late father, Brian, and late businessman Charles Kawalsky, recognised the tremendous growth opportunities in the business tourism industry, and the need for a one-stop facility for the booming SA business sector. As shareholders, the three responded to the need by opening the hotel in Boksburg; situated just 10km from OR Tambo International Airport.
Kevin’s father (the late Brian Clarence) lived by the motto: “Look after your staff and they will look after you”. This approach is continually propagated by Kevin amongst his staff, along with vision and ability to listen and adapt to a changing economy and new market needs.

Silverbirch considers the needs of the discerning and modern business traveller, needing a peaceful, upmarket stay with excellent business facilities and personal service, while Valustay @ Birchwood offers unsurpassed value for travellers and groups on a tighter budget.
