Our Staff

Evolve is headed up by two senior experienced property professionals, our Managing Director, Mr Benjamin Hume Ba(Hons) MARLA MIRPM AssocRICS & our Sales Director Mr Darren Loose. Benjamin has worked in residential property management for over 10 years, having started his career as a residential lettings property manager and still provides lettings management consultancy, which means we are able to offer our leaseholders advice on their tenancies and help when things go wrong!


Staff Profiles


Our Managing Director, Benjamin Hume Ba(Hons) MARLA MIRPM AssocRICS, is a fully qualified lettings property management with the Association of Residential Letting Agents, a fully trained and qualified member of the Institute of Residential Property Management & an elected associate surveyor with the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. Unlike a lot of our competitors this means the business owner is the technical lead and not left to senior property managers, allowing for a comprehensive and knowledgeable top-down approach, ensuring the decisions we make in the business are the right ones to protect and benefit our clients in this ever-changing industry. In his spare time Benjamin enjoys kayaking, motorcycling and landscape gardening (which is an advantage when tendering for grounds maintenance contracts at our sites!)
