About The Ellis Campbell Group
The Ellis Campbell Group has been in Family ownership since 1877
The Ellis Campbell Group is owned and managed by the fifth generation and is supported by two valuable non-Executive Directors.
The Ellis Campbell Group was founded in Lancashire in 1877 from a combination of Ellis & Sons Estate Agency and Craven Brothers machine tool manufacturers. The Group is now a fifth generation private investment office and an active investor in private rented and commercial property across the UK
The Group started by developing back to back houses alongside the Craven Brothers factory in Lancashire. Until the mid-1970s the portfolio consisted entirely of houses built by the Group and let out on weekly tenancies; since 1977 the Group has been investing in value-driven commercial property whilst continuing to invest in residential property, primarily in regulated tenancies.
Michael Campbell founded the Ellis Campbell Charitable Foundation in 1989, which the family and the Group actively support.
The Group Board consists of Michael Campbell (Chairman), Linda Campbell (family NED and Company Secretary), Alexandra Andrew (family NED), Jamie Campbell (family NED), Laura Montgomery (ED), John Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe (non-family NED) and Tim Barlow (non-family NED).
In September 2022 Laura stepped down as Managing Director and the Family appointed Toby Abbott as Chief Operating Officer.
