Agency beefs up management team with trio of promotions

Leaders Romans Group has made three internal promotions at a senior level to beef up its property management team.

Karen Shepherd, George Cartwright and Natalie Springer are all promoted from regional managers to regional directors.

Shepherd is at LRG’s head office where she oversees property management for Romans, Gibbs Gillespie and Maginie James across the South East, London, Swindon, Bristol and Wales,  overseeing 88 members of staff.


She worked for John Mortimer since 2007 and the company was acquired by Romans in 2013. 

Cartwright was an apprentice at IMS Lettings, which was acquired by Leaders in 2016. Over nine years he has been promoted eight times with roles including maintenance, inspections, home guide, valuations, re-lets, renewals and property management. He has been in management since the age of 21 when he headed up the inspections department for Leaders branches within Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. 

He will now oversee 15 branches across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire and Warwickshire.

Springer joined LRG in March 2022; before this she was an area property manager for an independent agent in Oxford, having previously worked as both a sales manager and head of property management in Savills’ Barbados office.

Commenting on the promotions, Kim Lidbury - LRG’s group director (property management) says: “I have been delighted to offer the position of Regional Director to three existing employees, all of whom are justly rewarded.  All have consistently demonstrated exceptional dedication, leadership and commitment to their respective teams and the customers we serve. These promotions reflect our organisation’s commitment to recognising and nurturing talent from within.”
