EweMove welcomes former Keller Williams Director of Growth, Wayne Albutt
Wayne Albutt’s two decades in the property industry working across South Africa and UAE have given him a wide view of the market. Since his move to the UK with his family in 2020, his passion for creating excellent consumer experience has continued. His experience of supporting a 450-strong network of agents as Regional Development Director for Keller Williams will stand him in good stead as he joins EweMove as their new Head of Training/Performance/Growth.
“Working in the estate agency business should be exciting and fun - my formula for a great property franchise business is that if the customer wins, then the franchisee wins and so does the franchisor. Providing direct support to franchisees is a niche I carved out for myself in South Africa led to opportunities further afield which I’ve really enjoyed. So, when I was looking for a new challenge in the UK, I focused in on EweMove as I could see their brand and team were both fun and exciting but also progressive and agile. Having met with The Property Franchise Group and EweMove, they had the attitude I was looking for in my next step.”

Wayne continues to take those steps carefully with brands he feels are committed to the best consumer experience, “So many businesses purport to have strong values but don’t actually follow through. I’m a huge believer in the strength of values and culture in a business, they keep everyone connected and it filters down into the customer experience. I can see and feel the culture that EweMove lives by.”
Nick Neill, Managing Director at EweMove, is pleased to welcome Wayne to the team, “It was clear how closely our values were aligned when I met Wayne. I’ve no doubt his drive and ability to support agents’ growth through even the most complex of markets will make him a great addition to head office.”

Wayne joined at the perfect time to be fully immersed in the EweMove network as we recently met for the first in-person conference in two years. Over 200 people converged on St George’s Park in Staffordshire for a day of learning from sector experts, sharing best practice and celebrating achievements.
