Chesterton Humberts has appointed Allan Collins, former Financial Director of Savills (L&P), as its new Chief Financial Officer.
Allan, a highly experienced Chartered Accountant and member of the Chartered Institute of Taxation, started his career at Deloitte Haskins & Sells (now known as Pricewaterhousecoopers) after reading Economics at Leeds University. He remained with the company for 10 years before joining the P&O Group as a Financial Director within the shipping division in 1994.
In 1998, he joined Savills (L&P) Limited, becoming Finance Director in 2000. During his 14-year tenure, he oversaw a rapid growth in the business’ turnover and office network and was instrumental in raising funds to spin off and “list” the Savills' in-house marketing team onto the AIM market, where he remains as a Non Executive Director.
Allan will be using his expertise and valuable experience in the property industry to support Chesterton Humberts’ continued expansion in the UK and overseas and help the company maintain and improve its margins.
Allan commented, “With a strong national and international brand, and a successful network of offices and contacts, Chesterton Humberts is well placed to benefit from a further expansion of its UK and international businesses. I am joining Chesterton Humberts at a great point in its history, and look forward to being a part of these exciting plans.
Robert Bartlett, CEO of Chesterton Humberts, comments: “This is the next step in our expansion and development plans: we have delivered good results in a challenging economic environment and Allan will be helping us to deliver the next stage of our strategic objectives and to take us into further expansion and development”.
