Toby Mileham - General Manager
My background was originally in banking & finance, I started work here, initially on a consultancy basis, offering my services for a few days each week and it just grew from there. Leasing was in its relative infancy at the time, but growth was rapid & it was an exciting time to join the industry, so I never left. I basically look after all the stuff that appears to happen just by magic! My role covers many areas of the business from HR & Finance to Compliance and daily Operations. Away from this place, I have a few hobbies, I'm in a couple of bands, sing & play guitar (not great at either to be honest, but it's good fun and our audiences are often fairly well inebriated by the time we get going, so we get away with it). I also do a little running (more of a waddle these days) and enjoy cycling when the weather is good. The industry has changed beyond measure in the last 5 years, we are now fully regulated and face many fresh challenges every year, but it keeps the role interesting.

Likes: Live sports events, especially athletics, films, books and live music. Netflix is my current favourite thing, so much choice.
Listens to: Stuck in the 90's so it's Britpop most of the way, Oasis, Blur etc. I'm also quite partial to a good old show tune.
