Residential asset management and operating partner – Ringley Group – announces a double executive hire. Both Nichola Pughe and Chris Georgallis join from Copping Joyce Surveyors, to head up the valuation department. The team is based out of the London office of Ringley Group, which also has branches in Manchester and Cardiff.
Nichola and Chris will have overall responsibility for Ringley’s valuation arm, which helps institutional property companies strengthen their portfolios through mortgage valuations, rent projections and reviews, development appraisals, site valuations, project monitoring, and more. The company works with major banks including Barclays, Natwest, Yorkshire Building Society, Close Brothers plc and Eurobank.
“Ringley has been a recognised force in the valuation space for the past 25 years, with a proven track record in helping investors and lenders navigate market cycles. Nichola and I will be leveraging our cross-sector experience and nuanced understanding of their objectives to provide the highest level of service.”Chris Georgallis, Managing Director, Ringley Group
Nichola and Chris bring over 20 years of combined experience to the valuation department at Ringley Group, the 115 strong company which specialises in full life-cycle asset management for the living sector. Core services include tech-enabled investment strategies, site finding, operational strategies, leasing and finance, working with major developers, investors and fund managers such as PATRIZIA, Europa Capital and Rise Homes.
“We were drawn to Ringley’s extensive team of sector experts and a multi-disciplinary approach, which means they have a comprehensive understanding of lender and investor pain points and how valuation matters slot into that. We look forward to growing the business at Ringley.”Nichola Pughe, Director of Valuations, Ringley Group
Nichola and Chris specialise in both the commercial and residential sectors. The pair spent almost a decade at their previous company, where Chris headed up the valuation department, and Nichola was the firm’s highest biller.
“Chris and Nichola will offer real value to our existing and prospective clients at a time when investors are applying extra caution to their capital commitments. They can work in isolated parts of the capital stack or across the entirety of it, a highly valuable benefit to our clients as residential property groups – in particular – make the move towards a vertically integrated investment, development and operational model.”Mary-Anne Bowring – Group Managing Director, Ringley Group
Ringley manages around £6bn of assets across 13,500 homes, with other past and current clients including Berkeley Group, Curlew, Gresham House, Grosvenor, Long Harbour and Moda.
