West Midlands property consultancy Burley Browne has bolstered its property management team with the arrival of finance specialist Emma Cowley.
Emma has joined the Sutton Coldfield-based company as property accountant. She will help to deliver a complete property management service to commercial property landlords across the industrial, retail and office sectors.
With several years’ experience in commercial property accounting, including service charge accounts and VAT reporting, Emma will oversee all aspects of finance in the property management department, working alongside Faryal Sheikh who leads the department.
She joins Burley Browne as it begins a new era. Equity partners David Hemming and James Merrick have each acquired a 50% stake in the business and have ambitious plans to expand its operations.
Emma said: “I’m excited to be working alongside Faryal and looking forward to helping to build the property management division while delivering high levels of service for our landlords.
“Our aim is to drive the property management division forward and grow our portfolio of properties significantly. Offering added value to landlords is key to our growth and development strategy.”
Faryal said: “Emma is a very welcome addition to the team and her experience and expertise will be a vital element in the growth of the department.”
Emma is qualified to Level 4 ACCA. She started her career at Belvoir and Acres letting agents, and spent five years at Orbit Property Management in Birmingham as a client accountant. She left agents Hardy Bromwich to join Burley Browne.
