Your Move estate agents has announced the appointment of well-known industry figure Eric Walker as regional managing director for its South-East division.
Walker, who was managing director of Bushells in London until its sale last year, joins Your Move with more than 20 years’ experience in sales, lettings, development, investment and property management.
He worked for a number of corporate agents before in 1997 joining Alex Neil in London where he rose from branch manager to board director. He then headed Bushells until its acquisition last July by Edmund Cude.
In his new role Walker succeeds Oliver Blake, who took on the role of managing director for Your Move’s sister company, Reeds Rains, in January, replacing Nigel Favas who, with local partners, has acquired the Reeds Rains master franchise for Northern Ireland.
Walker said: “I am very excited about joining Your Move, especially in view of their vision for the future and following the impressive development of the brand in recent years. I know this is a great opportunity to apply the wide-ranging skills I have gathered over the years and one I am truly looking forward to.”
Helen Woodhouse, managing director for Your Move, said: “I’m delighted to be welcoming Eric to Your Move and feel confident that his vast industry experience will be an invaluable addition to our already strong management team.
“Whilst his key focus will be to drive sales and lettings, his obvious enthusiasm and commitment to ‘be the best’ and to provide excellent customer service sits perfectly with Your Move’s business strategy, and I know he will be well placed to champion our cause in the South-East.”
