Keynsham-headquartered property group Andrews is pleased to announce the appointment of its new Company Chairman, with effect from 1st January 2012.

Jim Glover joined Andrews as a Non-Executive Director in early 2011, coming to the company with extensive experience at the highest level in both the retail and charity sectors. As the former managing director of Superdrug and current chair of learning disability charity Mencap, he has, throughout his career, also been involved with organisations including the Kingfisher group, Patientline and NAAFI, the official trading organisation of Her Majesty's Forces.

In addition, he is a former Pro Chancellor of the University of Birmingham, and is also Chair of Grafham Grange Special Educational Trust and a Director of RAF Charitable Trust Enterprises (RAFCTE).

Jim succeeds Andrew Radford, who has served as the company's Chair since 2005, and will remain with the company as a Non-Executive Director, and as the Chairman of ACT, one of the three charitable trusts that holds ownership of Andrews.

Speaking on this new appointment, Jim says:

"I'm pleased to take on the role of Chairman of Andrews, and look forward to working alongside Andrews' Directors in the strategic development of this innovative company which has grown considerably over the past 65 years".

Andrews, whose Head Office is situated on Keynsham's Bath Hill, has over 80 estate agency and letting and management branches across the South of England, spanning from London to Bristol, and employs over 550 staff. The company offers a range of property services including estate agency, letting & management and mortgage advice. For more information, visit
