Our Development Manager, Charlie Leask, talks to Scottish Construction Now

James Gibb development manager Charlie Leask details his experiences to date and how a Heriot-Watt University course will arm him and future property managers with futurefit skills.

“Looking back, I think I was always destined to work in property. Brought up in a family that refurbished properties, my dad handed me a paintbrush aged 10 and the rest is history!

From that moment on, my dad taught me all that he knew about transforming properties both structurally and aesthetically. Over weekends and school holidays, I learnt how to rip-out bathroom suites, about the importance of structural walls and how to best make use of a space to ensure the best return on investment. I even earned pocket money from doing it!

Fast forward 16 years and I’m now a Property Manager at one of the oldest and most highly respected property management firms in Scotland, James Gibb, which has been managing properties since 1872.”
