As CEO I am responsible for setting the wider strategy and business plan for the Group and ensuring that the right people are working within the business to achieve that plan. I am passionate about how we make Leasehold work specifically delivering a comprehensive service to Resident Management Companies. The challenge put upon a lay Director being asked to run a Residents Management Company is an unenviable one and making sure there are the professionals in the sector to advise these clients is in itself a challenge, one the Vegner Group are keen to deliver upon.
