Piers Morton has joined Fine & Country, which has offices in Penrith and Carlisle, as operations director.
He said: “I am delighted to be joining the team at Fine & Country.
“This is an exciting opportunity to lead the team, grow the brand and develop the business.
“The property market in Cumbria is the strongest we have seen in many years and demand for property shows no signs of slowing any time soon.”
The business is headed up by husband-and-wife team Nick and Helen Miller
Nick said: “Piers is joining the business at a pivotal moment – in a period of sustained growth, as we have seen a huge demand for properties in the north Cumbria area in the last year, resulting in record sales.
“Piers will enable us to build on this performance. His unrivalled local knowledge, professional connections and experience with clients are rare commodities and will benefit our present and future clients.”
This recruitment further strengthens a team that has been growing throughout the last year alongside the increased demand for full service property agency.
