Fiona Kelly has been appointed to the new role of operations director to look after the management and maintenance of all LAR properties. She was formerly area director of Orchard & Shipman and has wide experience of housing issues.
LAR’s chief executive, Ann Leslie, said: “This year will mark an important step for the organisation as we rapidly increase our footprint and number of properties across Scotland. Jan and Fiona will play important roles in our growth.”
LAR was set up in October 2015 to offer mid market rental properties and aims to provide an initial portfolio of approximately 1,000 homes.
