Expanding factoring company FirstPort Scotland appoints new business development manager
A factoring company which manages the homes of over 11,000 people throughout Scotland is set to expand.
FirstPort Scotland has appointed Elaine Bald as business development manager who will be developing the business’s profile to new build and retirement property developers in particular.
Elaine has 25 years’ experience of property management in Scotland and has worked at senior management levels with Redpath Bruce as associate, Ross and Liddell as associate director and RMG as regional manager. Previous to that she also had experience of the hospitality sector having managed a hotel and serviced apartment operation.
Roger Bodden, head of FirstPort Scotland, said: “This is an opportunity for FirstPort to utilise the enthusiasm, experience and business network of an accredited property professional in the industry in Scotland to raise our profile locally and secure a pipeline of new business.”
Elaine Bald said: “I am looking forward to focusing on building relationships and our profile across the residential property market, retirement, and new builds in Scotland. My Operations experience is hugely advantageous in preparing management specifications for large or small scale developments and offers insights for both our clients - the housebuilder and the homeowner.
“I was keen to join a forward-thinking, progressive company that cares about the service they deliver, and the people who deliver it. FirstPort is the largest residential property manager in the UK, so this is a great opportunity to build on a really positive company ethos, fantastic resources, systems and expertise.”
