One boutique Victorian network has made a key recruitment to drive its strategic ambition to become a nationally recognised brand.

Biggin & Scott announced that it has employed former McGrath and Ray White agent Simon Thomas to spearhead its growth into the Queensland market.

Mr Thomas has almost 20 years of industry experience. As national franchise manager, he will be responsible for leveraging new connections.

With his background in sales, training, coaching and auctioneering across multiple brands including Ray White and McGrath, Mr Thomas said that his experience lends itself to understanding the challenges a new franchisee might experience.
