Dubai - MENA Herald:

Asteco, the UAE’s largest property services company, has reinforced its commitment to its ‘People First’ initiative with a series of senior management promotions. As part of the drive, the company seeks to recognize the importance of its employees and grow its franchisee network to long-term commercial success.

Building on almost four decades of market-leading experience, Asteco has also strengthened its senior executive team with a string of promotions.

The company has appointed John Allen as Executive Director, James Joughin of the Valuations and Advisory Department and Nick White of the Owners Association Management Services Department as Senior Associate Directors, and Jobby Zacharia as Associate Director of the Valuations and Advisory Department. All new senior directors will have greater autonomy over budgets and act as the spokespersons for their respective departments.

In addition, John Allen has joined Elaine Jones, Executive Chairman and Founder, and John Stevens, Managing Director, on Asteco’s Board of Directors.

Speaking on the new developments, John Stevens said: “Supporting its employees and recognizing their contributions to business growth are integral to Asteco’s DNA as a customer-centric organization. In line with Dubai’s vision of becoming home to a happy, empowered and creative population, we are dedicated to investing in our greatest asset – our people.”

In early 2016, the company launched the Asteco Academy, an internationally recognized and unique real estate training facility, with the aim of developing the growing number of franchisees under the Asteco banner and aligning their deliverables with the company’s business goals. Since then, 150 franchisees received training under the guidance of Andrew Brookes, Learning and Development Manager at the academy.

Stevens added: “Asteco considers its teams and franchisees indispensable to its long-term commercial viability, and aspires to consolidate its position as a preferred employer and partner. With a team of highly skilled and like-minded individuals led by a strategic vision for the future, we seek to reinforce our company’s status as the Middle East’s largest real estate consultancy practice.”
