It’s congratulations to Cath Foxwell, Your Move’s Integrated Hub Manager, who has just celebrated 15 years’ service with the company. Here she answers a few questions about her time with Your Move and tells us about some of her key memories during that time. 

15 years – where has it gone?

I can honestly say that the time has flown by so quickly!

Cath foxwellI originally started with Your Move in Winchester as a Property Management Centre Manager with a team of around 18 people including our own Property Inspectors. 

How did it all start?

When I initially joined I had no property management experience, so you can imagine I learnt a lot the hard way in a very short period of time but that has held me in good stead over the years.

One thing I distinctly remember is that when I came for an interview the offices were in the process of being decorated and were a very dated grey colour. However the news of my impending arrival must have instigated a redecoration, as when I joined the colour scheme changed to some brighter sunny yellows and blues!

What has changed since you joined Your Move?

Well… we have ‘home grown’ most of our current management team of which I’m immensely proud. I’m also proud to have such a fantastic team of people who make up the Integrated Lettings Hub.

When the Hub began it was a new and very exciting venture for Your Move and, being asked to be instrumental in its creation and the processes involved, was a huge compliment. We now have a team of around 80 co-ordinators in the Hub looking after approximately 11,000 properties through the whole of the tenancy cycle.

Along with the creation of new teams, I have been fortunate enough to work with some true legends at Your Move over the years.

What has been the highlight of your career to date?

In 2011 I was nominated for an award at the ‘Property Awards for Women’. I had first class travel to Wembley, a champagne lunch in one of the boxes and then the awards ceremony itself. Subsequently, I won the award of ‘Property Manager of the Year – (Large Agency)’ - what a day!

I could not have achieved this 15 year milestone with Your Move without everyone playing their part and going above and beyond on numerous occasions.

It’s been a blast – here’s to the next 15 years.
