Principle recruits established estate management expert Joe Jobson as Director

Principle Estate Management has brought in experienced chartered surveyor and estate management expert Joe Jobson as a director.

He joins Principle founder Brett Williams in the Birmingham-based practice from 1 June.

Joe Jobson said: “I have worked closely with Brett Williams over a number of years and we are likeminded as far as business goes. We both seek to build sustainable, long term relationships with clients and respect each other’s professionalism and commitment.

“These are exciting times to be based within the Birmingham market place. Town and city centres are seeing a sea change in how people are living and working, and we believe that Principle Estate Management is well suited to meet the demands of residents and clients alike.”

He said that “One of Principle’s strengths was that the firm had a particular core specialism in residential block management and this will allow us to continue to build relationships with other property consulting firms, such as estate agents, who can introduce us to developer and freehold clients in the knowledge that we are not a threat to other aspects of their services, and we will continue to build on this.”

Managing director Brett Williams said: “It is great to have Joe Jobson joining Principle Estate Management as my business partner. He has fantastic experience in this sector and is very customer focused with a strong desire to make a difference.”

Principle Estate Management recently announced its first Birmingham city centre contract win, the management of Burne Jones House on Bennetts Hill, which houses two restaurants on the ground and basement levels, and 29 luxury apartments on the remaining floors of the seven-storey building.

Leasemethod Ltd, which refurbished the property, appointed Principle Estate Management specifically because of the firm’s experience with mixed-use developments.

Principle Estate Management was launched in April 2018 by Mr Williams, the former head of residential property management at CPBigwood.

The company, based at Cornwall House in Lionel Street, Birmingham, offers a national property management service, predominantly to modern residential apartment buildings and traditional blocks of flats.
