A new managing director has been named for EweMove - with the promise of more high-level appointments to come for the Property Franchise Group which owns the hybrid agency.
The new EweMove boss is Nick Neill, who launched the York franchise of the agency only three years ago.
His background includes pioneering a multi-million pound revenue-generating online product for one of the world’s leading publishing organisations, as well as securing a remarkable 1,900 per cent increase in his own EweMove franchise commission in three years.
“I’m hugely excited about the opportunity to further drive forward a business that I am immensely passionate about. As the UK’s first hybrid agency we’ve always been at the very forefront of innovation, and it’s this ongoing commitment that will see us continue to lead the way and transform estate agency as we know it” he says.
Ian Wilson - chief executive of The Property Franchise Group which acquired EweMove last year - says Neill embodies the commercial experience, passion and commitment for which EweMove is renowned.
“Over the past three years, Nick has built a hugely successful franchise business, and his senior level appointment represents our ongoing commitment to the future, the building of our successes to date, and our continuing growth across the industry” says Wilson.
There will be further high-level announcements from The Property Franchise Group shortly, including managing directors for the group’s Martin & Co brand and Xperience brands expected to be in position next month.
EweMove describes itself as the UK’s most trusted sales and lettings agency “based on independent reviews through Trustpilot.”
Just before the summer David Laycock and Glenn Ackroyd - enigmatic creators of EweMove - left the agency in a move which, at the time, led some to suggest that the hybrid operation would be abandoned by the Property Franchise Group.
Laycock and Ackroyd are believed to have taken with them up to £8m in total in cash and shares.
