Gemma Price has been appointed head of property management at residential property manager urbanbubble.
With more than 20 years of experience across a wide range of business sectors, Gemma joins the Manchester-based business from her role as head of operations at Recom Solutions and a director at Hardcastle and Hogarth Ltd.
Prior to her three years at Recom, the new starter spent seven years at commercial property group Bruntwood in a head of property role.
She said: “Choosing urbanbubble was an easy choice for me, not only is the company at a very exciting point in terms of business growth, it also has a very strong values culture and a customer centric business where the customer is at the very heart of it.
“Customer service is what I am passionate about, so there is a genuine fit between my own personal aspirations and those of the business.”
Based at Sevendale House in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, urbanbubble recently expanded its property management activities outside the North West of England by securing further nationwide Build to Rent (BTR) schemes with Legal & General.
Michael Howard, founder and managing director of urbanbubble, added: “Gemma brings with her a veritable wealth of experience in the property sector and we’re excited by what she can bring to her new role. We have every confidence that Gemma will be a great asset to urbanbubble.”
Driven by urbanbubble’s increasing nationwide reach and growing number of units under management, forecast to almost double from 8,000 to more than 15,000 by 2021, the fast-growing firm expects to see revenue rise to £6m in the year ending June 2019.
