Principle recruits more experience to finance team as expansion continues

An experienced accountant has been recruited to the finance team at Principle Estate Management to support the company’s rapid expansion.

Haq Nawaz’s new role as service charge accountant was created after the number of developments the Birmingham-based company is looking after reached more than 200.

Mr Nawaz has nearly 20 years of experience working in finance for a variety of property companies, the most recent being as a senior finance officer at Sanctuary Housing.

At Principle he will be working on clients’ accounts, dealing with service charge budgets, invoicing for rents insurance and service charges, handling sales and purchase ledgers and credit controls, and finalising annual service charge accounts.

Paul Richardson, the finance manager at Principle, said: said: “We’re delighted to have appointed Haq to our expanding finance team, which is the engine room of property management.

“We’ve been looking for the right person and are pleased to have found Haq as he has the in-depth knowledge that we need.

“Adding Haq’s skills to our team will allow our property management personnel to be comforted that we can provide the highest standard of service to our customers.”

Mr Nawaz, who lives in Oldbury, has a degree in Business Administration and is a part-qualified member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, which he will continue to study for at Principle.

He said: “I have been aware of Principle for some time and am delighted to take up the opportunity of being part of this dynamic team.

“I am looking forward to helping make a real difference as the business continues to grow.”

In his spare time, Mr Nawaz’s interests include keeping fit, reading poetry, browsing the internet, and listening to the radio.
