Phil Vickery, former England rugby captain, joins SureLet
Rugby union legend Phil Vickery has joined SureLet, the lettings agency franchise, as a director. After a hugely successful career in rugby, starting his own clothing range, Raging Bull and winning BBC Celebrity MasterChef in 2011, Vickery was ready for a new project.
“I had been looking for my next long-term challenge and when the opportunity to become a director for such a fresh vibrant company came about I jumped at it. I have been aware of the firm for a number of years as I’m a close friend of Colin Poole, SureLet’s managing director. I’m taking on this role looking to soak up the skills, experience and market-leading knowledge of the SureLet team and hopefully impart my skills in the business world into their model,” said Vickery.
He continued: “I liken the work with rugby, as in the lettings industry, team spirit and family atmosphere go hand-in-hand with raw skill and a hard work ethic. Once you’re welcomed into the family you have a support network that you can constantly call upon. SureLet have this in abundance, the franchising team are on hand to help you and give you support every step of the way.”
Poole, welcoming Vickery said: “Having Phil on board is the icing on the cake as far as I’m concerned and I’m looking forward with a refreshed sense of optimism to the future of SureLet. We have a vision to become recognised nationally by our competitors and peers as a dominant and dynamic lettings franchise company and we’re going to achieve it.”
This year marks SureLet’s 10th anniversary. The company was set up in 2002 by Colin and Kelly Chick and started franchising in 2003. There are now 24 franchises across the UK from Exeter in the South to Manchester in the North.
