Familiar faces make up new senior leadership team for Marchand Petit

Marchand Petit is thrilled to announce the appointment of Sarah Douglas as Managing Director.

Sarah brings 32 years of estate agency experience to the role. Prior to joining Marchand Petit four years ago, Sarah was the sales director for an independent estate agent based in Southwest London, having previously also worked for a national property auctioneer selling both residential and commercial property.

Speaking of her new position, Sarah said: “I look forward to working for and with everyone within the wonderful Marchand Petit team, leading with a clear focus on delivering exceptional service to our customers.”

Sarah is joined by a second new appointment for Marchand Petit; Helen Harris will assume the role of Director and Head of Prime Waterfront & Country House with immediate effect, leading a renowned and respected department of the business that has continued to go from strength to strength since being established by Madeline Marchand almost twenty years ago.

Helen, who brings 19 years’ experience working in all sectors of the property market across the region, said: “Being able to lead Marchand Petit’s unique Prime Waterfront and Country House Department is both exciting and a privilege, working through the South Hams – an area I have a strong passion for and have lived in all my life.”

The two appointments are the latest in a series of promotions within the Marchand Petit senior leadership team as the company continues to experience marked growth and success across the South Hams, with Tim Jones recently also assuming the role of Associate Director and manager of the Dartmouth branch.

Marchand Petit’s Chairman, Gordon Maunder, expressed his delight at the new appointments saying: “Sarah suceeded in the selection process to become our new Managing Director and will help to deliver many more years of success for Marchand Petit and our clients, while Helen has a wealth of experience that will undoubtedly see our dedicated Prime Waterfront & Country House department continue to flourish.”

He continued: “We are all excited for this next chapter in the Marchand Petit story, one that has spanned more than 30 years and which has seen us become renowned as the estate agent of choice for coastal, town and country property in the South Hams.”
