Essex Estate agents Beresfords have announced two senior promotions with Samantha O’Sullivan being appointed Director of Group Resources and Nicki Treffers as Director of New Business and Marketing.
‘Sam has been a vital component in the Company ever since she joined us’ said Chairman Paul Beresford. ‘It’s a demanding role ranging from overseeing HR to managing change, both technical and build, across the Group and she excels in it.
‘Nicki originally came to us as maternity cover but has been a driving force in not only keeping us ahead of the game in marketing but also in our work within the community especially in respect of charity fundraising. In turn that has led to establishing very effective business relationships with major plc companies invest banks to major manufacturers and retailers.’
Both Sam and Nicki now sit alongside Bernadette Barcham, Lettings Director, but a tip of the hat must go to Eileen Beresford, now 90, who founded Beresfords with husband Reg over 50 years ago.
Coincidentally these promotions follow on from the Beresfords inaugural ‘Women In Business’ event. Held in conjunction with John Lewis, who provided ‘after hours’ access to their Chelmsford store for networking, fashion advice and retail therapy, the evening was a huge success with around 75 career women attending.
