Former director with corporates Mike Gowland has joined estate and lettings agency franchise group HomeXperts to become their operations director.
Gowland, who originally qualified as a chartered surveyor, has almost 30 years’ experience in the property industry.
He has run his own estate agency, been the Yorkshire regional director for Countrywide, and is a former managing director of Bridgfords.
More recently, he has worked for both Sequence, part of the Connells Group, and for LSL, where he was divisional director responsible for establishing and developing its lettings business.
Gowland will take responsibility for the operational side of HomeXperts and will be working with both new and existing franchisees in developing and growing their business.
Gowland said: “I believe that the HomeXperts model, with its combination of well trained and qualified agents providing high levels of customer service combined with a lower cost base, is the way forward for the industry.”
