Compliance Manager appointed by Principle

Principle Estate Management has appointed a Compliance Manager to its staff as the business continues to expand.

Rebecca Gibson joins the company from JB Leitch Solicitors in Liverpool, a law firm that specialises in property management, where she was a senior account manager.

She started in April 2014 as a legal assistant after taking a law degree at the University of Liverpool and has since built up extensive knowledge of the sector.

Ms Gibson’s new role at Principle will include ensuring systems are fully up to date to record all assets on every development.

She will make certain that any testing and maintenance regimes comply with statutory or best practice requirements, that they are tendered, contracted, diarised and undertaken, and that any reports are acted upon.

Ms Gibson will also be involved in management of credit control and client reporting.

Ian Smallman, operations director at Principle, said: “We’re delighted to have appointed Becky and we are sure she will be a quality addition to our expanding team. Tracking and reporting on assets at our developments is crucial, especially because many modern developments are becoming increasingly complicated. More and more clients want us not only to actively manage their developments but to also report that we are doing so, and Becky will be responsible for reviewing and overseeing this process.”

Ms Gibson, who has recently moved to the Midlands, said: “With my law degree and background I am well placed to take on this role. I have learnt a lot over the last five years and am grateful for that opportunity. I am now looking forward to this next career challenge.”

Brett Williams, managing director at Principle, added: “Becky is the perfect fit for this role as from her background she is used to reporting to clients with high standards. We’re now looking forward to further enhancing our client offering by using Becky’s specialist knowledge and experience.”

Principle Estate Management was launched in 2018 by Brett Williams, the former head of residential property management at CPBigwood in Birmingham, and a past-chairman of ARMA.

The company is based at Cornwall House in Lionel Street, Birmingham, and offers a national property management service.

It has become the UK’s fastest growing residential estate management business just over a year after its launch, managing over 100 developments across the country.
