Fine & Country reveals latest line-up of National Advisory Council members

Fine & Country has elected new representatives to its National Advisory Council (NAC).

The NAC members, each representing one of eight regions of the UK, were elected via a vote of Fine & Country licensees within the respective regions. They will represent their region’s licensees at quarterly meetings in London and monthly video conference meetings.

The NAC members are:

  • Colin J Shairp – South East representative
  • James Cooper – South West representative
  • Ben Madden – London representative
  • Joe Parry – Wales representative
  • Simon Bradbury – East Anglia representative
  • Helen Miller – North West representative
  • Jan von Draczek – Midlands representative
  • Mark Manning – North East representative

Serving for a period of two years, each NAC member will be responsible for highlighting the opportunities, challenges, and market conditions of the region to the NAC, as well as communicating the decisions made by the NAC back to the region at local meetings.

Other key roles include Emilie Despois, the brand’s chief marketing officer, and Jonathan Handford, non-executive Director, both assisting the NAC decision-making process.

Nicky Stevenson, MD of Fine & Country UK, said the role of the NAC is pivotal to the brand. “We are fortunate to have a wealth of knowledge within the network and can draw on the decades of experience represented within the NAC,” she commented. “Through the feedback we receive, we can guide the brand forward in the best possible trajectory that will help us continue to expand and evolve in a way that will be beneficial to all our agents.”

Congratulating the elected representatives, Graham Wilson, National Advisory Chair, said: “Another set of exciting challenges are coming but as a network that is stronger than ever before, we are more than prepared.”

Wilson added: “It was with great sadness we lost our dear friend Napoleon Wilcox earlier in the year, one of the first licensees and the first chair of the NAC. We will also miss Mark Gilbertson as he steps down but look forward to him continuing his support from the sidelines.”
