Another former Countrywide director is in the news, this time for launching a specialist property recruitment, training and consultancy business.
Mike Gowland, who originally qualified as a chartered surveyor, has worked over 30 years in the industry including a period as Yorkshire director for Countrywide.
He has also run his own agency and is a former managing director of Bridgfords as well as working for Sequence and LSL, where he was divisional director responsible for establishing and developing its lettings business.
Now he has set up Cygnet Recruitment which he says will “provide complete recruitment and training solutions for small to medium sized agencies who do not have the benefit of an in house operation.” The operation will be based in the north west of England.
“Cygnet is a recruitment and training company, run by property people for the benefit of property people. We know and understand the challenges faced by small to medium sized businesses in today’s market place and can help them meet those challenges” says Gowland.
