We are proud to be part of a brilliant team.
We hire people because we think they will be great at what they do. Some already are, with all the right qualifications in place. In others, we see potential and invest in them to give them the skills they need. It's important that we work with people who believe in the same things we do. Our team are focused: able to 'do the detail' well. They are expert: providing bright solutions. They understand the world is a connected system: they are connected to each other, to our client teams and to the communities they serve. Most of all, we like to work with happy people so we provide our team with the tools to be happy and fulfilled in their role, enabling them to be committed to delivering brilliant property management.
Our aim in Credit Control is to provide the best service we can for our clients and occupiers.
We offer a friendly, consistent and personal service, backed by experience and understanding of the challenges and quirks of the property management field. I love the friendly, supportive, and very consciously close knit and professional team atmosphere here. Outside of Ashdown Phillips I am a keen poker player, a Netflix addict and a voracious reader.
Senior Facilities Manager
I have been doing this job since 2015.

Without communication we will not achieve our goals, without connectivity we won’t hear our clients, and without professionalism we will not have a business.

My expertise comes from the training I have received and the knowledge that has been passed down to me by others.

I was appointed as a Board Director in 2014 and headed up the Facilities Management team until May 2018 when I was promoted to Managing Director.
Our business is an inspiration to me. It is a brilliant example of something created from a desire to deliver a great service, which has grown successfully through a strong reputation. I believe first class service comes from knowing your properties and occupiers intimately, working collaboratively and being a trusted advisor.
I make full use of time off; and find long weekends in Snowdonia and Scotland are just as enjoyable as holidays abroad.
Director - Surveying
Since May 2017, I have been a Director based at the Carnaby Street Office, London. Before being promoted, I was an Associate Director for almost four years.

I am happiest at work when I am working together with my colleagues or when a difficult issue is resolved. I love that we all enjoy our jobs; a happy team will go the extra mile.
It is important to spend as much time as I can with my young family as they grow up very fast; we enjoy going on camping trips. I play golf and cycle when I can.
Prior to joining Ashdown Phillips I was a receptionist for one of our suppliers, AM Services and started with APP in February 2019. I pride myself on being organised, delivering a brilliant property management service and ensuring the building is ran as smoothly as possible – communication, support and hard work allow our team to work as one to provide a first-class professional service.
