Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward (KFH) appoints Kayleigh Sylvester as its Head of Portfolio Management. The newly created role will oversee the company’s growing Build to Rent and corporate client portfolio. Specialising in residential property recruitment, Realto Recruitment acted on behalf of KFH to source the suitable candidate for the role.

Kayleigh first entered the property industry in 2014 as a Saturday assistant with JLL. Within a few months, she was promoted to a permanent property management administrator role. Rising quickly through the ranks, Kayleigh left JLL as an Associate with four years’ experience in Build to Rent asset management.

“KFH manages over 30,000 residential units across London and being able to play a continued part in their expansion into Build to Rent is a privilege. Kayleigh is an expert in property management with an impressive set of skills acquired over 8+ years in the industry.

“With national exposure, Kayleigh has acted as a trusted Asset Manager on behalf of some of the leading institutional investors in the Build to Rent space. The industry is growing rapidly, and I am excited to see Kayleigh and KFH claim their stake as a leading Asset Manager.”

Kayleigh brings eight years of property and portfolio management experience to her new role at KFH. For six of those years, she focused on Build to Rent/Portfolio Management at JLL, where she was an Asset Manager overseeing a portfolio of over 1,000 units. Prior to working in the property industry, Kayleigh worked in retail and restaurant management.

“I am so excited to have joined KFH as Head of Portfolio Asset Management. I am looking forward to using my experience and knowledge to help with the continued success of their Build to Rent and portfolio management teams.

“Everyone has been so welcoming and there is a strong sense of support and building each other up. So many of my peers have long tenures with KFH, which is a real testament to the culture of the business.”
