A number of new faces have arrived at Riverside House as we continue to strengthen our highly motivated team and prepare for the opening of our ‘sister’ operation in Preston.
Elaine Mason is Riverside’s new accommodation manager and Steven Dyson is in charge of maintenance at the Salford development.
Both will also carry out the same role at Portergate’s new £18 million Friargate Court development in Preston’s University Quarter, which will open later this year.
Elaine, from Lytham, brings with her a wealth of experience in the hotel and education sectors, including life as housemistress at a boarding school for girls. She has also worked for hotel groups across the UK.
Steven, from south Manchester, is experienced in a whole host of trades – from electrics and plumbing to joinery – which are ideal in fulfilling the role of ensuring
both developments are properly looked after.
Lorraine Arrigonie is another new arrival to Salford. She joins the Riverside House team as accommodation supervisor and concierge.
A former health and social care student at Manchester Metropolitan University, Lorraine, from Droylsden, has a wealth of experience in the accommodation sector.
Hannah Southworth is our chairman Anthony Jackson’s new PA and another important part of the backroom operation that ensures the smooth day-to-day running of
Portergate Property Management and Riverside.
Her administration tasks include operating the office’s diary management system, arranging meetings and ensuring that paperwork is up to date and in order.
Hannah, who is originally from the Preston area, has worked as a PA in the offices of major North West legal practices and recruitment companies and has qualifications in business administration.
