Leaders Romans appoints former restaurants boss as its new CFO

Paul Aitchison has no track record in property but his experience of working with private equity-backed companies should come in handy at the agency, which is backed by Bowmark Capital.

Leaders Romans could be cooking up a storm in the property market with its new Chief Financial Officer, Paul Aitchison.

The Leaders Romans Group (LRG)  – one of the UK’s largest residential property services groups, with 160 branches, 50,000 rental properties under management and annual revenues in excess of £120 million, backed by the private equity firm Bowmark Capital – has announced the appointment of Paul Aitchison as the Chief Financial Officer (CFO).

Paul has over 16 years of financial experience across several sectors, most of which were backed by private equity.


Paul’s experience includes eight years as Chief Financial Officer for Cote Restaurants and during his time there he oversaw the growth of the business from its very first restaurant to over 75 when he left in 2016.

Since then he has been an interim financial consultant; CFO of Empowering Learning Ltd.; Time Plan Education Ltd.; and CFO of Social Entertainment Ventures in London.

“I have led several management buyouts and acquisitions and put in place numerous bank loan facilities and refinancing arrangements,” he says.

“I have also implemented a number of systems that have increased efficiencies within the businesses I have managed – having always viewed finance as an important support function for the people on the ground making sales, I’m looking forward to helping LRG continue in its efforts to grow.”
