KWB is pleased to announce the appointment of Gareth Marchment as Head of Property Management of its property and asset management division.

Most recently, Gareth was a Director at Orbit Property Management where he oversaw a nationwide portfolio of clients and was instrumental in generating significant company growth during his 15-year tenure. Before that he held posts at Granite Property Partners and Bruton Knowles.

Gareth’s new role is to accelerate KWB Property Management’s growth across the Midlands and nationwide. The division specialises in the management of new and existing office, retail, industrial and residential buildings and developments on behalf of developers and landlords, as well as maximising value through asset management.

Gareth, who is a chartered member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), is taking over the reins from Mark Lenton, the previous head of the division who will continue to support the team.

Gareth Marchment said: “I am thrilled to have joined the KWB team as a senior leader. The property and asset management division is well established in Birmingham with a reputation for quality, personal service and excellent results, reflected by the number of long-term and returning clients in the portfolio. Our dedicated and experienced team is committed to maximising client assets and success, as well as our own.

“I am really looking forward to getting to know our existing clients and nurturing relationships with a particular focus on the commercial and industrial sectors, as well as expanding our customer base. KWB has the added benefit of offering the full range of property services, meaning we can provide bespoke solutions to optimise our service.”

John Bryce, Founder and Director at KWB, said: “We are excited to work with Gareth to grow our property management portfolios in the Midlands region and beyond. He has a wealth of knowledge and contacts, and is a great fit for the KWB group. 2023 was a very good year for the division, especially the residential portfolio, with our block management work set to increase.

“I’d like to thank Mark Lenton for his commitment and dedication to KWB to date. He has overseen the impressive development of the our property management portfolio over the last 20 years and has led the business through some difficult economic times. We have also had the benefit of his extensive knowledge and experience, and he was instrumental in starting our now flourishing residential block management division, now headed up by Nicola Fagan.”

KWB Property Management has been delivering tailored solutions to client-specific requirements for more than 30 years. Their experienced property and asset management team takes a proactive approach that delivers results, adds value to the investment and enhances client reputation.

In addition to property and asset management, the division offers a range of services that examine overheads, optimise space and add value. These include service charge and contractor management, workspace consultancy, negotiating rent reviews and lease renewals, business rates advice, dilapidations and schedules of condition, and valuations.
