His principal responsibilities include the day to day management of the properties and staff within Livingcity's residential management portfolio as well as ensuring optimum service delivery to both clients and property owners.

Headquartered in Manchester, The Livingcity Group employs more than 30 head office staff with a further 100 personnel who are either onsite or field based.

As well as its property asset management division, the company also operates a number of other arms, including: LcBC, its building surveying team, and TLCbyLc, which offers bespoke cleaning and maintenance services for both commercial and domestic clients.

Mark Gallimore, managing director of The Livingcity Group, said: "This year has been an exciting one for the firm and our focus has been on growing a strong and robust team to meet the demands of our clients and residents.

Taylor added: "I've worked in property for many years and this new role is an exciting step for me as Livingcity is such a well known name in the sector. We work across some fantastic buildings and it's great to be part of a team which is so focussed on delivering the right solution and service."

Smart recruitment, seems like an intelligent guy. Hopefully this is the start of the move away from promoting ex-joiners into managerial positions. The industry is riddled with site management with an ex-trades background who bluff and fluff their way through the whole process: programme, logistics, health, safety, commercial, risk, etc, etc. This culture must stop! It holds the industry back to 80% of its potential. I worked with one ‘project manager’ who still hadn’t managed to set up his site offices a year into the project. Then he went off with stress. Clown, complete and utter clown.
