The CEO of the Leaders Romans Group is leaving, officially by the end of this year but with reports suggesting that he may have already gone.
Adrian Gill had been in the job under two years, joining in April 2017.
No reasons have been given for his departure and Gill himself has not commented.
Gill, a chartered accountant by profession, had previously been CEO of estate agency at LSL, the parent company of brands including Your Move, Reeds Rains and Marsh & Parsons.
After his resignation in April 2016, LSL insisted that he work out his full notice, until the following January.
He then took a period of leave before joining Leaders Romans, meaning that all told it was a full 12 months between his resignation in order to join Leaders Romans and his actual start.
His CV also includes almost eight years previously at Connells, where he had senior finance and commercial roles.
At Leaders Romans Group, he is now succeeded by Peter Kavanagh, who has been group managing director since 2016.
Kavanagh had previously been managing director of Romans which he joined in 1991 to establish the company’s professional services division.
Leaders Romans Group chairman Richard Connell said: “Peter Kavanagh has an unsurpassed knowledge of our business and the property services industry as a whole and we are delighted to make this appointment to support the next stage of the company’s growth.
“I would also like to thank Adrian Gill for his leadership and overseeing significant product innovation. We wish him well in the future.”
Kavanagh said: “I am delighted and honoured to have been invited to take on this new role.
“I look forward to further growing our lettings, sales and professional services operations across our 160 branches, continuing acquisitions to support our expanding national network, and developing our range of services for the benefit of both existing and new clients.”
Leaders and Romans became a group entity after backer Bowmark Capital executed the merger. The equity firm had first backed Leaders’ management buy-out to the tune of £48m in 2010, and then Romans’ £50m management buyout three years later.
There is no information as to Gill’s next role.
