Trio boost Scanlans' property management team

Scanlans has expanded its property management division with three new arrivals at the firm’s Manchester office.

Paul Christopher, Mark Elves and Victoria Thomas have been appointed as property managers to help Scanlans meet growing demand for its services.

Paul previously worked at Scanlans for more than a decade and has rejoined from Zenith Management (NW).

In his new role, he will spearhead the introduction of a new online client portal and electronic maintenance management system.

Mark was previously at Realty Management in Stockport, while Victoria has worked at firms including Vets4Pets, where she was estate manager, and Cushman & Wakefield.

Scanlans is a national practice which has seven partners and 70 staff across its offices in Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, London and Cardiff.

"The trio join Scanlans at an exciting time, with several schemes coming on stream in Manchester and the Midlands"

Its property management division specialises in residential block management across the north west and the Midlands, with a portfolio that includes Manchester developments Granby Village, The Edge and Smithfield Buildings.

The firm also has a surveying consultancy with a focus on commercial and residential property, in addition to building surveying and LPA receiverships.

Partner Ian Magenis, who heads the property management team in Manchester, said: “The trio join Scanlans at an exciting time, with several schemes coming on stream in Manchester and the Midlands, bringing more than 750 new units under management by the summer.

“Mark and Victoria bring a wealth of experience to the practice and have taken on the management of a number of residential schemes in Manchester.

“We are delighted to welcome back Paul. The new leaseholder portal and software system provide him with the perfect opportunity to continue developing his career at Scanlans.

“The firm prides itself on delivering a high-quality and efficient service to clients and these improvements will enhance our ability to do that.”
