Meet the Team

Patrick Taylor
Group Chief Executive
Patrick started out as a graduate trainee in management for a UK construction company before moving to a position of Regional Manager for what is now the UK’s largest firm of managing agents. As his career developed in 2003 he moved to head up the Property Management department of Marsh & Parsons which subsequently became Blenheims.
Patrick has built up a wealth of experience through his career but comments that the industry is so complex and wide ranging that there is always something new to learn and never a dull moment.
He is a keen cyclist and enjoys spending as much of his free time as possible on his bike.
Mike Rutland
Group Chairman and Group Finance Director
Mike began his career as an accountant at Littlejohn Frazer and qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1991. Since then, his career has seen him work in the Lloyd's of London insurance market before spending 4 years in Hong Kong as CFO for a corporate services company. On his return to the UK he decided to enter the property industry and has worked at a senior level for a number of companies including JSS Pinnacle and Gross Fine.
Since the outset at Blenheims, Mike has focused on our systems and processes relating to client accounting to ensure that these exceed the industry norm.
Mike's passion is sailing and being on the water with friends and family.
Jonathan Holmes
Group Managing Director
Jonathan joined us in 2004 and held the position of Director of Property Management until 2015 when he was appointed Managing Director of Blenheims in the South West. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the industry and has been at the heart of the business since he joined. Aside from business development and having responsibility for the Torbay office, he has worked to develop and deliver our core values of professional property management with a personal touch and outstanding customer service.
Jonathan’s real passion is rowing, Cornish Pilot Gigs to be precise. He’ll be found on our rivers and beaches across Devon and Cornwall most weekends!
Leanne Barker
Operations Director - London
Leanne has an incredibly strong background in Property Management at all levels and has been with us for 15 years now. Her experience encompasses brand new developments to listed buildings and her skills in really getting the best out of people made her the natural choice for our Director of Property Management.
Hilary Taylor
Director
With a background in sales and marketing, Hilary has been with the company since 2009. Before joining Blenheims, she worked in a variety of marketing roles, giving her a wide range of experience in the area. Her current position sees her having responsibility for HR and our Bristol office, while also taking care of the company’s marketing and online activity.
Hilary is a keen runner and recently completed her first duathlon - that's running and cycling to the uninitiated! All that effort needs some reward so she also enjoys putting the calories back in by baking!
Helen McGaw
Group Finance Director
Helen qualified as a Chartered Accountant with KPMG in 2006 and in 2007 moved into the heavily regulated Insurance industry. She progressed through various roles focussing on commercial accounting, business partnering and driving control and process improvements. Having relocated back to Devon after spending 13 years in Bristol, Helen now has two young boys who keep her busy. Her spare time is spent on the beach (rain or shine!) making the most of living back by the sea and a bit of baking always makes her happy.
Dominic Gearon
New Business Manager
Originally from the South West, Dominic gained a degree in Civil Engineering from Plymouth University before working for Balfour Beatty Major Projects. He left to pursue a career in the music industry which, in his words, “didn’t go that well, hence why I now wear a suit to work!”
His property management career started in 1998 with five years in London before moving to head up the South West office of Labyrinth Properties. In 2006 he joined the Peverel Group where he progressed to Regional Director level. A Member (MIRPM) of the IRPM since 2008, he also acquired the AssocRICS qualification in 2012.
Dominic has two children and enjoys reading, running, cycling, skiing, cooking and travelling and the odd ale!
Shaun Ayles
Regional Operations Manager
Shaun was our first Property Manger in the South West when the company started out. So we were delighted when he re-joined us in 2014, having gained invaluable management experience with two much larger organisations. Shaun’s remit is to manage our Property Managers in the South West and to ensure that we achieve the high standards of customer service that we set ourselves. He is on hand to support his team and to provide them with coaching and support while also being very hands on with clients.
Shaun enjoys his golf and spends his downtime honing his swing, on golf courses across the country.
