Training guru takes over two franchise agency branches

Martin & Co’s Sheffield and Worksop branches are under new ownership, with training guru Dean Gill taking the reins.

He succeeds previous owner David Jacques, having worked in the businesses during an 18-month transition period as Operations Director.

Previously, Gill spent eight years as head of The Property Franchise Group’s training academy – providing training design and delivery for more than 350 offices and 2,000 staff across the group’s five high street brands.


Both the Sheffield and Worksop branches have seen their premises and all existing staff retained as part of the resale process.

Gill says: “It’s been an action packed few weeks but I’m proud and delighted to be taking the Sheffield and Worksop offices forward into the future. There was always a good bond between David and I when I was part of The Property Franchise Group’s team, and we stayed in touch.

“He asked how I’d feel about coming on board as Operations Director with a view to taking on the business, as he was keen to step back, and I jumped at the chance. Both offices have fantastic teams, David has been a brilliant support and mentor and I’m excited for the future.” 

Martin & Co managing director Ellie Hall adds: “Dean was an instrumental part of The Property Franchise Group for many years and is an inspirational trainer, coach, and leader. Martin & Co’s teams in Sheffield and Worksop will now benefit from Dean’s expertise and I’m excited to see him develop the businesses even further and build on the successes of David.”
