Chris has been involved in the property industry his entire working life and has extensive international and domestic experience. Hailing from the city of Liverpool, in 1989 Chris set his sights on a career in overseas property and like many others set off for the sunny shores of Spain. This started an almost global tour, seeing him adopt key roles across Europe, The Middle East, South East Asia and as far afield as New Zealand. Over the past 30 years Chris has developed an impressive reputation for identifying, creating and developing property investment opportunities, with his main forte’s being sales, marketing, construction, fiscal strategy and funding.
Chris and his business partner Jonathon first worked together at leading property developer The First Group, where he was a founding board member, together they headed up operations in the UK, Hong Kong and then Dubai before Chris headed off in 2008 to start the Bangkok based property developer 8over8 where he still plays an active role. However, driven by the knowledge he has gained over many years Chris has now decided that the UK and its vibrant and ever-expanding property market is where his future lies. So, in 2019 he invested in Gower & Mae, this allowed him to again join forces with friend and fellow property professional Jon, with a view to taking the company into its next logical stage of growth. This will see Gower & Mae enter a new and exciting expansion program which includes property acquisition, design and development projects in the UK.
For me and 8over8 this was an easy investment to make. Two very like-minded individuals who are both creative, ambitious and have a can-do attitude to everything we undertake. The future will not only be successful but as usual it will be fun, building a bigger, better and stronger Gower & Mae and nurturing and training the next generation of property gurus. I can’t wait!
