Former Deputy Chairman & Assistant Managing Director Retires After 30 Years from Commercial Property Firm

by Julia Ford

After 30 yeas of service, Robin Gallagher, former deputy chairman, assistant managing director, and consultant for commercial and industrial lettings specialist, Towngate PLC, has retired.

Having worked for the Brighouse-based company for over 30 years, Robin has been a formidable force throughout the organisation’s expansion, helping to build its portfolio of industrial property lets across Yorkshire and the North West.

His notable triumphs during his service have included establishing and developing business strategies, subsequently aiding company growth, the early mentoring of a number of company personnel, and relationship building with key members of the financial community — both regionally and nationally.

Having recently celebrated his 80th birthday and moved to a new house, Robin is looking forward to spending more time with his family. In addition, he recently completed a two-year part-time MA course in creative writing at York St John University, where he graduated with a Merit. He is now finishing up his first year of a PhD degree and penning his fledgling novel, something he looks forward to concluding in this exciting, new chapter.

The firm’s chairman, David Smith added;

“Robin has played such an important and valuable part in the organisation’s journey. His calm, professional, and patient nature have made him a fantastic member of the team. The whole team would like to wish him a long, healthy, and happy retirement.”
