We are proud to announce that Tim Simmons has become our Head of Residential Sales and Nick Evans has been appointed as Head of Franchising. Both Tim and Nick have been in the Humberts business for 19 years and 42 years respectively.

Ian Westerling, Humberts Managing Director, says; “Nick and Tim have been key players in the evolution of our business and I am delighted to offer them the opportunity to focus on two fundamental elements of our strategy for growth and expansion”.

Having been at Humberts since 1999, Tim has contributed heavily to the health of the Humberts business, specifically in the South West. Based in Yeovil, Tim became Manager in 2004 and was instrumental in the office becoming the most profitable in the business in 2013 and 2014. Tim was appointed on to the Humberts Operations Board in 2016 and has since launched the internal training programme – he will continue to be based in Yeovil and all of the sales offices nationwide will report in to him.

Tim Simmons, Head of Residential Sales, says; “I’m delighted to have been appointed Head of Sales – the residential element is a core part of our business and I look forward to taking Humberts on the next stage of its journey. We expect 2018 to be a similar year to 2017, with little growth in property values a ‘back to basics’ approach of phenomenal service standards and attention to detail will be instrumental to the success of the business.”

Having previously filled the role of Head of Residential Sales, Nick Evans has now taken on the newly created position as Head of Franchising to fulfil a vital role in the business. Having joined Humberts as a Chartered Surveyor in 1976, Nick has been a core part of our evolution. Based in Sherborne, Nick will still play an active part at his local office whilst helping to grow the franchise element of the Humberts business.

Nick Evans, Head of Franchising, says; “In 2018 we’re looking to attract further franchisees to the Humberts network. With a successful track record and heritage brand the aim is to grow this part of our business and build relationships across London and the UK.”
