Tay Letting is delighted to announce the appointment of its new Head of Accounts. We are welcoming David Gibb, who is based in the company’s Glasgow office. David is highly regarded in the finance and property management space. He has over fifteen years’ experience in the sector.
David Gibb said:
“I worked in London for a number of years, specialising in banking and investment management. After that I returned to Scotland to lead the accounts and back office operations for an established Edinburgh based letting agent. Latterly I worked for Hamilton Fraser, property insurance specialists, as their business development manager in Scotland.”
David is a qualified letting agent through the SAL/ CLA Letwell programme and brings a wealth of experience to the role.
Marc Taylor, Managing Director, said:
“Tay Letting are in a fantastic period of growth, and we are delighted to be welcoming David Gibb. Operational accounts is a key part of our business, and David is an expert. With his approach he can evolve our accounts practice and keep us ahead.”
On joining Tay, David saw the company embrace new technologies. These facilitate agility to the ever-changing needs of landlords and tenants, and still allow Tay to be there for clients. As a result, Tay plans to rollout an online system, which will benefit clients by providing their information via an online Portal. However landlords and tenants can still call the team if there’s a problem. This is refreshing as some agents are looking to only communicate with their clients via ‘Live Chats’. This doesn’t sit well with the bespoke property management service offered by Tay Letting.
Above all, the impact of the Covid pandemic has affected both landlords and tenants alike. We expect the PRS to recover in the summer to pre-Covid levels as the vaccination process speeds up and various sectors re-open. The investment Tay Letting has made in strengthening its technology and people will see us well placed to manage landlord’s properties and compliance requirements moving forward.
