Meet Our On-site Team – The Concierge
These people are the unsung heroes of wonderful community living at KEW. They need to be sympathetic to those who need help yet firm when it comes to dealing with problems both within and outside the site. They may appear to be relaxed, but in reality they always need to have their wits about them to deal with all sorts of human behaviour and unexpected problems. Without exception, they are a very friendly bunch who are dedicated to we Residents….So very well chosen by the Managing Agent!
The Development Manager, who heads up the Concierge team locally, is Shakela Farid.
She is ably assisted by our Concierges…
