Boyle is back working with Andy Halstead, founder and CEO at Let Alliance. Halstead and Boyle have a working relationship that goes back some 30 years in major organisations such as Prudential, Pearl Assurance, AIG, Barbon and now Let Alliance.
Halstead said, “John Boyle has a brilliant relationship with many members of the UK letting agent community and I did not want to see his skills and knowledge lost through a semi-retirement that was planned much too early! It has been an interesting process convincing John that he can still enjoy all of the finer things in life and at the same time dedicate some of his time to Let Alliance as well as Hallmark (the UK’s leading utilities management partner for the lettings industry). I finally won the argument. Having worked with John on and off over the last 30 years he is someone who I trust, a rare thing in the modern business world. Let Alliance is developing really well, taking market share and growing organically. Having John on board is a huge win for us.”
Boyle said, “Andy made a very strong case to get me out of semi-retirement. I already have a fantastic non-executive board position with Hallmark and my new role with Let Alliance complements this. I am very excited at the prospect of working with Andy and his team again, and many of the individuals who I know very well. I am impressed with the way Let Alliance has grown, winning market share organically with a market leading proposition. As I have experienced on several occasions, Andy is very convincing when he really wants something, so here we go again! Very exciting times.”
John will also be working alongside Ian Shackell again, non-executive director and significant shareholder at Let Alliance who worked with John at Barbon, where Ian was Director of Finance and Risk. Now Head of Global Risk at Willis, Ian said, “John will add significant value to Let Alliance at such an exciting time for our business. I know John well and had no hesitation in supporting his appointment. We are lucky to secure his services.”
