David Westgate, Group Chief Executive at Andrews Property Group, was recently presented with a ‘Long Service Award’ in recognition of his 20 years at the property firm based in Keynsham.

Having joined in 1997, David, who is a Fellow of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, drew on his previous 10 years’ industry experience to develop the letting and management side of the business.

Originally comprised of just five lettings offices and a portfolio of 100 landlords, Andrews Lettings and Management has extended its branch network more than seven-fold and works with 1,000s of landlords each year.

David was also responsible for establishing and growing the group’s specialist RICS practice, Landmark, which launched 10 years ago, and additionally spent three years managing Andrew’s Estate Agency business. David was appointed Group Chief Executive in 2016.

David comments: “In many ways it feels like yesterday that I walked through the door at Andrews for the first time, yet so much has happened in the intervening time.

“Property is such an exciting sector to be involved in and its constant evolution, whilst bringing challenges, also brings with it many very exciting opportunities. I think it speaks volumes about the strength of the Andrews’ team that I’ve chosen to build such an important part of my career here and I’m looking forward to many more exciting years ahead.”
