Strutt & Parker reveals new top team as it ‘shifts towards digital’

first_imgStrutt & Parker has revealed its senior line-up and said that it intends to build up itself as a digital estate agency and also win more market share in London, its key territory.The new team is part of a refresh of the agency following its acquisition by French property and banking giant BNP Paribas in August 2017 which has been under way for several months.Since its acquisition, apart from a foray into public relations that saw it criticised for suggesting first-time-buyers should cut out lattes to get on the property ladder, everything has been relatively quiet.Then in March, just two weeks before the lockdown began, Kate Eales (above, second from left) was promoted to run its regional lettings and sales operation while Louis Harding (above, left) was revealed as its new sales and lettings chief in London.Eales is a former Hamptons high-flier who joined four years ago. At Hamptons, she was a Regional Director who managed 13 offices across central and SW London.Harding has worked at Strutt & Parker for two years since joining from Foxtons and has been credited with overseeing significant growth in the department.New promotionsThe rest of the residential team has now been revealed. These are Matt Sudlow (above, second from right), who becomes its Head of Estates and Farm Agency Department, and Charlotte Moxon (above, right).She is the agency’s new Head of Regional New Homes, a department that is currently looking after a sales portfolio of some 1,400 properties.Moxon, unlike Sudlow, comes from outside the Strutt & Parker family and joined the company in 2018 following a ten-year career at LSL.Guy Robinson, Head of Residential Agency at Strutt and Parker, says: “This new organisation of our leadership team will enable us to push forward more rapidly with our strategy and ongoing projects, including the shift towards digital estate agency and the growth of our market share in London.”Charlotte Moxon Louis Harding Matt Sudlow Hamptons Kate Eales strutt and Parker June 25, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Janes gains from recipe system

first_imgGloucester bakery, Janes Pantry has installed a two-terminal Recipe Formulation System from Dataprocess Stevens in Blackburn. The system has been designed to provide recipe traceability, as well as product consistency and the elimination of scrap batches caused by formulation errors.”By installing this system into our bakery, we’ve saved around 5% of our annual raw ingredients cost and have virtually eliminated bad batches caused by operator error,” explained Janes Pantry MD Neville Morse. “I had no idea that enforcing weighing tolerances would produce such an improvement to our bottom-line profitability.”The Vantage system provides recipe control by enabling the production manager to schedule the daily requirements for the recipe batches on the PC in advance. The batch requirements are then displayed on the Vantage Touch Screen, enabling operators to select from the list of requirements without using a paper production schedule.The operator is prompted through the recipe formulation process, one ingredient at a time, ensuring the weighing tolerances are met and no over- or under-weighing occurrences can spoil a batch. Lot numbers for each ingredient are recorded to provide a comprehensive audit trail.’’’’last_img read more

Pork Farms employee raises £5,000 for cancer

first_imgA Pork Farms employee has raised £5,000 for cancer charity Macmillan by completing a major cycling challenge. Bernie Gibbons, who works at the group’s Riverside Bakery site in Nottingham, had never owned a bicycle before taking on the 600 mile Bike2 My Roots ride.The trip saw the 46-year-old cycle through the north of England and Scotland before crossing to Northern Ireland to complete the eight-day journey.Gibbons was invited by his brother-in-law Johnny Toner to join the challenge team after Toner and his relative Sean Garvin completed a similar ride in memory of Mr Garvin’s father two years ago.Despite only buying a bicycle in April, Gibbons’ training paid off as he travelled an average of 80 miles a day.Gibbons said: “I had no experience of cycling prior to this adventure as I had never owned a bicycle in my life, but something about this challenge appealed to me, so I agreed to give it a go.“There are all sorts of statistics that show how hard this challenge was, but none of those matter – it’s the fact we did what we set out to do that is important.“I have been given fantastic support by the Riverside Bakery team. At Riverside, we have all been touched by the cruelty of cancer and are very aware of how the Macmillan team helps support victims and their families.”Deborah Bolton, general manager of Pork Farms Riverside, described Gibbons’ effort as “a phenomenal feat of determination”.She added: “What Bernie has achieved is truly inspirational and everybody at the Riverside Bakery is in absolute awe of his efforts.”last_img read more

Toubab Krewe Plants Seeds Of Love At Purple Hatter’s Ball [Videos]

first_img“That Damn Squash” Toubab Krewe brought their blend of world music, rock and roll, and improvisation to the 11th-annual Purple Hatter’s Ball at the Spirit Of The Suwannee Music Park for an uplifting set of amazing jams. One of the most impressive things about Toubab’s set was the fact that one of the players was playing with the band for the first time ever. Thanks to some travel shenanigans that kept bassist Justin Kimmel from making the show, Hive Mind four-stringer Dave McSweeney stepped in and helped keep the low end popping.With a new album, Stylo, out after a lengthy hiatus, Toubab Krewe looks to be ready to take their music to the people with a series of festival appearances and road gigs all summer long. With the New Orleans-based rhythm section of Luke Quaranta on percussion and Terrence “Groove Guardian” Houston on drums, the duo nimbly blended African, South American, and American beat styles into a satisfyingly diverse backdrop for the rest of the band. Guitarist Drew Heller is the epitome of restraint, never overpowering the melody but instead letting his licks be carried along with the sonic tide. Meanwhile, Asheville, NC’s pride, Justin Perkins, demonstrated his amazing prowess with both the kora and the kamel ngoni as his plucked tones rang out with clarity and joy.This, and all the other music made over the course of the weekend, honored the fallen and elevated those left behind. Purple Hatter’s Ball memorializes a fallen friend of the scene, Rachel Morningstar Hoffman, who was taken from the world far too soon due to a tragic series of events precipitated by antiquated drug and informant laws. Festival promoter Paul Levine founded Purple Hatter’s Ball and the charity that bears her name to gather those who loved her and use the energy created to help change the world for the better. Check out the Rachel Morningstar Hoffman Foundation here, then check out the unique and heartfelt tunes below to see the love that is Rachel’s legacy.“D’Jarbi” “Stylo”“Hang Tan”last_img read more

Power Play – Innovation at Harvard

first_imgBringing electricity to remote areas in developing countries is a challenge Harvard graduates Jessica Matthews AB ’10 and Julia Silverman AB ’10 are tackling head on. As students, they developed sOccket, a soccer–ball–shaped device that harnesses the kinetic energy generated as users kick, dribble, or throw it around. Once the energy is stored, small electrical devices such as LED lights can be plugged into sOccket. Matthews and Silverman are now working with organizations serving resource-poor communities to distribute the ball on a larger scale.last_img read more

Meet Hamilton Founding Father Daveed Diggs!

first_img Star Files View Comments Related Shows Age: 33Hometown: Oakland, CACurrent Roles: A dynamic Broadway debut as French general Lafayette, “the Lancelot of the Revolutionary set,” and future U.S. president Thomas (“What’d I miss?”) Jefferson in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s epic musical Hamilton.Stage Cred: After earning a theater degree from Brown University, Diggs acted in plays on the West Coast and began writing and performing with the hip-hop group Clipping. He joined Miranda’s sketch troupe Freestyle Love Supreme before being tapped for Hamilton.“As a kid, I was very shy. I liked being on stage because it gave me a reason to be around people. The other great thing about acting is it allows you to imagine circumstances different from your own. I was a poor Bay Area kid getting to pretend to be a Russian aristocrat.”“I went to Hebrew school, but opted out of a bar mitzvah. My mom is a white Jewish lady and my dad is black. The cultures never seemed separate—I had a lot of mixed friends. When I was young, I identified with being Jewish, but I embraced my dad’s side too.”“Everybody without money should apply to the Ivy League. The secret they don’t tell poor kids is ‘need-blind admissions.’ Brown recruited me for track, and it ended up being thousands of dollars cheaper than a state school.”“Hamilton is authentic. If another writer tried to put rapping into characters for whom rap music didn’t exist, it would feel forced, but that’s how Lin speaks. He quotes rap, R&B and Broadway musicals in conversation! It feels natural to perform because it’s real.”“Our first preview was surprisingly emotional. I had decided early on that Broadway would not have a space for me, so I was taken aback by how intense it felt. I’ve toured the world and played big houses, but never one with so much history.”“The past six months have been a whirlwind. I just moved to Washington Heights with my girlfriend, and some crazy celebrity comes [to the show] every week.

State Treasury to Invest in Vermont Banks

first_imgThe Vermont State Treasurers Office has unveiled an initiative to invest a significant portion of Vermonts short-term cash in Vermont Banks. Currently, such funds are invested primarily in government agency securities, high quality corporate commercial paper, and money market accounts at large financial institutions. The new Treasurers Bank in Vermont Program is consistent with an ongoing effort by State Treasurer Jeb Spaulding to support Vermont-based financial institutions when acceptable rates of return can be achieved.According to Treasurer Spaulding, We are inviting banks to participate in a certificate of deposit (CD) program designed to support community banking, while earning a competitive return on State funds. We will invest on a predictable basis, via a competitive bidding process, in banks with branches in Vermont. The program is designed to be attractive to a wide range of banking institutions and is predicated on the belief that investing Vermont funds in Vermont, consistent with earning a competitive rate of return, is a good policy.Banks will be pre-approved by the Office of the State Treasurer for maximum levels of investment based on a bank’s size and other factors. In addition, participating banks must have at least a satisfactory rating under the federal Community Reinvestment Act of 1977. State funds will be available for bid in various maturities, based on State cash flow projections and projected interest rates. Participating banks will submit bids through the Internet and/or e-mail. The Office of the State Treasurer will award CDs based on rank order of quoted rates and associated dollar levels until the funds are depleted for each scheduled bidding period.Chris D’Elia, Executive Director of the Vermont Bankers Association, reacted to Spauldings initiative positively. “Vermont’s banking community welcomes the opportunity to work with the Treasurer’s Office on implementing this new program. This effort will keep investment funds within Vermont, thus allowing them to be utilized to encourage new economic activity, he said.Kenneth Perine, President of the National Bank of Middlebury, explained his support of the Bank in Vermont Program by saying, I am pleased to see efforts that recognize Vermonts banking institutions as a viable alternative for State of Vermont investments, and am pleased by Treasurer Spauldings effort to reach out to Vermont bankers in designing this program.Other examples of Treasurer Spauldings commitment to supporting Vermont institutions include investments in the Vermont Community Loan Fund and the Vermont Development Credit Union. In addition, the three investment firms used by the Treasurers Office to manage longer-term funds are all based in Vermont. They are National Life Capital Management, Hanson Investment Management, and Prentiss Smith & Company.last_img read more
