SevenCapital strengthens Global Leadership Team with trio of appointments

Johnny Conran has been appointed as Head of region for the Middle East and North Africa at SevenCapital

Leading UK property investment and development company SevenCapital has strengthened its global leadership team with a trio of top appointments.

The company, which over recent years has established offices in Dubai, Hong Kong and South Africa, has appointed two sales directors and a new regional head to strengthen and expand its international operations as demand continues to grow for UK property.

Johnny Conran has been appointed as Head of region for the Middle East and North Africa. Conran has led the sales operation in Dubai for the last two years and significantly grown their geographical reach beyond the UAE, supporting international investors with quality UK property.

Conran commented: “The appetite for the UK property market remains strong, despite the uncertainty of Brexit, because it is still seen, and rightly so, as one of the most stable markets in the world. For expats it’s widely recognised as a good place to grow their wealth in a market they know, and for overseas nationals, it’s notably a safer investment than perhaps their own domestic market.

“I’m looking forward to leading the team as we expand and take SevenCapital’s quality UK property investment options across the MENA regions.”

In addition, Liam Smith has been appointed as Sales Director for Hong Kong and China. Smith moves from SevenCapital’s UK headquarters to lead the team, based in Hong Kong, taking a wealth of experience and knowledge of the UK property market to Asian and expat buyers.

Finally, Jordan Edwards has joined the business as Sales Director for South East Asia, in a newly launched office in Singapore. Edwards has been resident and working in the property investment industry in Singapore for the past seven years. With extensive experience, Edwards will be well placed to support the region.

Helen Barlow, global sales and marketing director at SevenCapital commented: “These three fantastic appointments mark a positive step in SevenCapital’s expansion. Importantly they also demonstrate the resilience of the UK property market and its continued demand, globally, as a stable investment vehicle.”
