Fine & Country seeks new CEO as David Lindley’s six week notice period ends

After ten years with the brand, Fine & Country’s CEO, David Lindley, has stepped down from the position to pursue other business interests.

Lindley said:

“It has been an exciting journey for me with Fine & Country, I have been fortunate enough to be part of this superb brand which has grown rapidly and is now one of the leading names in premium estate agency.

“I would like to thank all Fine & Country licensees and team members for their support and dedication to the brand.”

David Lindley gave his notice six weeks ago and Fine & Country are currently looking for a CEO to fill the position.

The Board has appointed Nicky Stevenson as MD of Fine & Country UK and Head of Growth, and Daniel Harrington as Head of Growth London and International.

A well-known figure within the industry, as the former Managing Director of the Property Academy, Stevenson will continue the focus on supporting the UK licensee’s network to grow its market share in the premium market.

Stevenson said:

“I am delighted to take on the role as Managing Director at Fine & Country UK.

“We are a young and ambitious company, with big growth plans.

“I am excited to work with the team to build on our already enviable position of ‘fastest growing premium brand in estate agency’ as we seek to further grow the brand across the country.”

She will be supported in the role by Emilie Despois, Head of Fine & Country Marketing.

While Stevenson looks after the brand’s UK growth, Daniel Harrington, who has been in the business for five and half years, will be focusing on London and international offices.

The international team will be further strengthened by South African based Linda Erasmus as the brand’s international ambassador.

Jon Cooke will officiate as Interim Global CEO until a suitable candidate is found for the role.

Cooke says:

“On behalf of everyone within the Fine & Country network, we thank David for his remarkable service to the brand over the past 10 years.

“Without him, the brand would not be where it is today.

“While we are sad to him go, we wish him all the best for the next chapter in his career.”

    I cannot think of many people who I’ve met who  have what David has. It’s hard to say what ‘it’ is but every time I have met with David or  seen him leading F&C he has always been impressive.



    I look forward to seeing what he does next.
