James Moran has been at the helm of Winkworth South Kensington since late 2001, having realised that a career in estate management would lack some of the pizzaz of the RBKC. Named at Loose head Prop in Country Life’s “Residential Property Dream Team”, James holds rugby in very much the same regard as property. It seems that the elements vital to a successful team on the field transfer well to the workplace when in 2009 the office won the national award for sales turnover, and in turn became the most valuable sales office in the country. A firm believer in making the most of your weekend, its either an afternoon at The Stoop, salmon on the Tweed or pulling on the wellies and heading out with his two sons.
On leaving school Christopher Roupell spent a year in the city and then spent 2 years teaching waterskiing in the summers & ski guiding in the Alps in the winters. He also enjoys sailing, motorcycling and country sports and has completed various charity cycle rides, including rides to Paris, Gallway to Dublin and most recently from Bruge to Spa in Belgium, all for a good friends charity, the Sarah Greene Breakthrough Breast cancer fund. He lives between West Berkshire and London with his wife and family of five children and three dogs. Christopher entered the property market in Pimlico in 1979 and joined Winkworth by opening the Pimlico office in 1981. Christopher then took the Franchise of the Knightsbridge office in 1982, later selling that to his brother after buying the South Kensington Franchise in 1983. This he continues to run and was joined by James Moran in 1995 who is now a partner in the business.
