Jonathan Mortimer has been appointed as Area Manager for Connells Milton Keynes network and developing the teams within it. Jonathan has 30 years’ experience in the industry and comes full circle with Connells, having started his estate agency career with Connells as a negotiator in the High Wycombe branch in the 1980s under the guidance of his first branch manager, and now Connells Group Chairman, Stephen Shipperley. Jonathan spent 17 years with Connells working his way up through the ranks across the Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire areas before leaving to run his own estate agency, Mortimers in Aylesbury.
Stephen Shipperley, Connells Group Chairman, says, “Jonathan’s enthusiasm, great work ethic and genuine interest in people – customers and staff alike – made him stand out the first moment I met him. His experience, character and attitude is a real asset to us and, having previously worked at Connells, Jonathan already knows our business inside out.”
Jonathan added, “Rejoining Connells has given me a fresh challenge and allowed me to re-establish what I want for my career – to get back on the ‘shop floor’ as such, strengthening my patch, growing and mentoring the teams within it and attracting new talent to the business. “Our network of seven branches across the city gives us a level of coverage that no other agency can compete with, and I look forward to developing an even more collaborative approach to sharing best practice between them to ultimately provide the very best service to our customers.”
