Managing Director Andrew Simmonds said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be announcing these appointments today. It sets a key milestone for us as a business and highlights the ambition we have to become a major player in the local property scene.

“I have known Mark for a few years and always admired his ability to retain a harmonious relationship with all of his clients. He has always been at the top of my list of key appointments to make. Mark has more than five years’ experience in these sectors and will play a vital role as we develop the business.”

Also joining the business will be Andrew’s wife Tracey, who has worked in the public sector for many years, including Local Government. Most recently she has been overseeing and coordinating property developments in the region.

Andrew Simmonds said: “Tracey has a great deal of experience overseeing refurbishment and construction projects, coordinating teams of sub-contractors, handling all aspects of health and safety compliance and liaising between contractor and client.”

Tracey is a member of the Chartered Institute of Housing and is an affiliate member of the Institute of Residential Property Management. Her role is to work closely with contractors and clients to co-ordinate maintenance matters.
