Nygel Scourfield, Managing Director of Property Services for FirstPort said: “In Cihan’s previous roles delivering first class customer service by maintaining high standards with the utmost care and attention is something we are keen she helps us to continue at FirstPort. I am looking forward to seeing the fresh perspective she brings with her.”
