Meet our new business development manager

Posted on 30/05/2018

We are very pleased to announce that our team is growing! Duncan Foster has joined the SDL Property Partners team as Business Development Manager. 

Duncan originally joined SDL Property Management last year as the business development manager for estate management. He has worked in the property management industry for 30 years, spending the majority of his career at family business Alan Foster Associates, where he developed the property management side of the business. For 10 years Duncan was senior partner of the business which he then sold in 2014.

Bringing his wealth of experience to SDL Property Partners, Duncan comments: “I am excited to move into this role as it enables me to help other people who are passionate about property to hone their skills.

“Over the years I have learnt that property management is a balancing act between knowing the technical aspects of property and being a people person, it is essential to get the perfect balance to be successful, and our franchisees have the full support of the team and I.

“With compliance becoming more of a priority within the industry, it makes it increasingly difficult for property managers to go-it-alone, I know this was true for me. Had this franchise model existed 5 years ago, would I have sold my business? Perhaps not.”

Duncan is a fantastic addition to our team, with experience of both property management and running a business. If you would like his perspective of how SDL Property Partners could work for you, get in touch with Duncan to arrange a discussion.
