Many, I’m sure, will remember being in Mayfair during the 80s and 90s (good times right?!) – I certainly do, working for Graham Chase at Clive Lewis & Partners. After many years working for Graham, I took some time out to travel around Asia and then joined Graham again at his newly founded company Chase & Partners.
In 1998 I founded BackupTyping as same-day, outsourced typing services
, when outsourcing was a new concept to the UK property industry, computers cost a million pounds and the internet made a squeaky noise when you ‘dialled up’. Early clients were Chase & Partners and the also forward thinking King Sturge (now JLL) and BackupTyping was born. We believed same day typing services was the key to outsourced typing
in the property industry and that it's still true today.
I have a bit of a thing for chairs – there’s plenty of seats around our place. I started a cocktail bar on Margate seafront shortly after moving here, then sold it a few years later. I am now working on building a small portfolio of cute little houses in Margate where I still live.
