Director for Block Management Partners
B-hive Block Management Partners

With over 20 years’ experience in the industry, I am responsible for the B-hive Block Management Partners division of the Vegner Group, creating a network of independent block management partners, working in partnership with B-hive Block Management Partners.

B-hive Block Management Partners brings a fresh and transformative approach to estate and block management, enabling businesses to either add block management services to their current offering or empowering Property Managers to independently run their own business.

Our proposition should bring another avenue for managing agents to operate safely and compliantly with B-hive Block Management Partners in their corner, allowing them the flexibility to focus on good customer service and business growth.

National Business Development Manager
B-hive Block Management Partners

Having worked in the property sector since 2001, in 2010 I decided to set up my own block management company in Bristol. We grew a reputation for having a communicative and transparent style, enabling us to attract some of Bristol’s most prominent blocks. The Vegner Group purchased the company in 2016 and since then I have worked within the Group in various roles.

As part of the B-hive Block Management Partners team I am mostly focussed on continuing to grow and establish our partner network. Whether they are seasoned operators setting up a business, or qualified professionals such as sales and letting agents who are seeking to add block management to their portfolio, we look forward to maintaining the rapid growth we have seen since the launch of our partnership proposition.

Head of Key Accounts
B-hive Block Management Partners

I have been involved in leasehold management for circa 30 years which includes owning and running a successful business that was sold to HML in 2014. Whilst not actively looking to sell, the rationale and benefits of a sale in an industry where compliance and legislation changes meant that the ability to concentrate on core activities had become more challenging was attractive.

Since 2014 I have worked in business development and most recently in the Partners’ team where the possibility to help and empower individuals or companies to set up or expand their operations is extremely fulfilling.

Head of Partner Relationship Team

My role as Head of Partner Relationship Team involves overseeing and orchestrating all elements to ensure a smooth and seamless setup of our partner’s block management companies.

It is my commitment to ensure that all our jointly managed sites are fully compliant with the ever-evolving legislation and industry standards and that the partners thrive and grow their block management businesses.

I believe in impeccable customer service and strong communication and lead the team to provide both to our partners and clients.
