Manchester Life Appoints Jennifer Bendik as Chief Operating Officer
Appointment strengthens leadership structure as portfolio grows to 659 PRS homes developed & under management, and 778 rental & for sale homes currently under development.
Manchester Life today confirmed Jennifer Bendik’s appointment as Chief Operating Officer of Manchester Life Management Limited, where she assumes overall operational responsibility for the company’s rental portfolio.
Jennifer joined Manchester Life in November 2016 as Head of Lettings, leading the launch and management of 659 rental homes across the first three PRS developments in Ancoats and New Islington within the past 12 months.
Jennifer’s COO appointment comes as Manchester Life builds institutional capability as it readies for the completion of its next five sites by summer 2021, and continues to improve and enhance its rental offer.
“Jennifer has already played a central role in delivering on our mission to redefine Manchester’s rental offer and help address accommodation shortages for the city’s professional population. He further commented: “Jennifer’s track record and commitment to excellence makes her exactly the right choice as we continue to grow and evolve.”
Marty Edelman, Executive Chairman of Manchester Life
“The past two years with Manchester Life have been an amazing challenge as we’ve delivered over 659 homes to market. Feedback from our residents is generally extremely positive, which is reflected in our exceptionally high renewal rates. However, we continue to learn and evolve, and our priority now is to refine and strengthen our operations so as we build an institution ready to scale.”
