Chestertons hires new sales director for Canary Wharf 

Warren McCann

Chestertons has started the year with another senior appointment by hiring former Douglas & Gordon area director, Warren McCann, as the new sales director for its Canary Wharf & Docklands branch.

With almost 20 years’ industry experience, McCann started his career as a sales negotiator at Foxtons Balham branch and was later promoted to launch the agency’s first South East office in East Dulwich. There, he established himself as one of Foxtons’ highest-volume sellers for the East Dulwich and Peckham areas, which led him to become sales manager and operations director.

After 11 years with Foxtons, McCann moved over to Douglas & Gordon to take on the role of area director for central London where he managed the teams of seven offices for over six years.

McCann commented: “Throughout my career at other agencies, Chestertons has always been one of the main competitors because it has such a strong and well-respected brand and has a habit of taking bold and unexpected approaches to things. It’s great to now be on the other side of the fence and working with the support of the brand and the wider business.”

Matthew Thompson, Chestertons’ head of sales, added: “It’s fantastic to welcome Warren to our Canary Wharf & Docklands branch. No doubt, his expertise will strengthen the team even further in order to provide our clients with the best possible service.”
