Following the successful launch of FirstPort to unite all property services businesses under one brand, Nigel Howell has been appointed as CEO of FirstPort and Keith Shields as Managing Director of FirstPort Retirement Property Services.
Nigel joined Knight Square in January 2013 as Chief Financial Officer and he took on the role of MD, Peverel Property Management in March 2014. His new role as CEO sees him take overall charge of all of FirstPort’s services to 160,000 homes across the UK.
Nigel will be supported by Keith, who will run FirstPort Retirement Property Services as well as Kingsborough (soon to be FirstPort Insurance Services) and specialist retirement estate agency Retirement Homesearch.
