Developer Aitch Group has secured the services of former Apprentice star and ex-Haus Properties boss Jamie Lester.
Lester joins the team as group marketing director, following last year’s announcement that he’d be standing down as director at Haus Properties, six years after he founded the high-profile SW London agency after a successful turn on the 2010 series of BBC’s long-running business show.
Founded by Henry Smith in 1995, East London-based Aitch is about to make a big name for itself in the field of PRS, where it now has six schemes in the pipeline, while a newly-launched retirement arm, Blenheim Retirement Living, is to debut shortly with a project in Chobham, Surrey.
Henry Smith, CEO, Aitch Group: “We welcome Jamie on board at an exciting time for the business with our flagship PRS scheme in Deptford set to launch shortly as well as a pipeline of new sites on the horizon. He has a wealth of experience across the sector and will bring a unique insight into our evolving business model. Jamie will lead on marketing across the business and initial priorities will be to plug existing sites and head up the ongoing strategy to evolve and grow the Aitch Group brand.”
Jamie Lester: “As an east Londoner born and bred, I can naturally identify with all that Aitch Group stands for and I look forward to developing a brand that stays true to its roots. The company has the ambition to deliver industry leading products, with some incredible schemes in the pipeline, both in sales and PRS, and not just in the East End. Aitch Group understands what is required to succeed in an ever changing and dynamic sector and I look forward to using my experience to help shape its future.’’
