Lomond Group Strengthens Board With Trio Of New Appointments

The Lomond Group has strengthened its senior leadership team as it accelerates its growth strategy across the UK with the appointment of three new directors.

Lucy Jones has joined as Chief Operating Officer, Kirsty Franks has taken up the role of Group Marketing Director, and Clare Wakeford has become its Group Human Resources Director.

All three are newly-created Board roles at the Leeds-headquartered group, whose fast-expanding network of lettings and sales agents includes the leading High Street Yorkshire and Humber brand of Linley & Simpson. It also encompasses Thornley Groves, John Shepherd, Brand Vaughan and Michael Jones & Company in England, plus Stonehouse and Braemore in Scotland.

Group Chief Executive, Stuart Pender, said: “All three directors have a proven track record for success in their respective fields and we are delighted to welcome them to team Lomond.

“They join at a pivotal time for the group as we step up our plans to grow at scale and at speed in both existing and new regions across the UK.

“To secure leaders of Lucy’s, Kirsty’s and Clare’s calibre, with their collective experience, is a major step forward for us as well as a clear signal of our ambitions. We look forward to them contributing to our future success.”
