Christine J Kelsall BA (Hons) Dip M MRICS - Director

Tel: 0161 618 _1881  Email: chris@kelsallwilliams.co.uk
Christine has almost 30 years experience in business, having held senior marketing positions within large, blue-chip organisations before moving into surveying 10 years ago. Having instigated the birth of Kelsall Williams and setting up the company, Christine soon became involved in Lease Consultancy work and now acts on behalf of a number of clients. Her combined skills in both property and marketing (and in particular retail marketing) add an extra dimension to the business, and often bring a freshness of ideas from "outside the box".

Unknown to most, Christine is a fluent German speaker and has a good working knowledge of French, having lived and worked in both countries.

Outside of working full time at Kelsall Williams and looking after her three teenage boys (and husband John!), Christine is a keen sportswoman. She enjoys running, swimming, cycling, tennis and golf. Aside from a means of escape, Christine describes exercise as valuable thinking time and has made many key business decisions whilst on a run, including the decision to form Kelsall Williams!
