Ashcourt Rowan parent appoints group COO

Syndicate Asset Management, the parent company of Ashcourt Rowan, has promoted director of planning Jeremy Rance to group chief operating officer.

The move represents Mark Cheshire’s first key management appointment since his own appointment as interim group chief executive last month, following the resignation of group chief executive Jonathan Freeman.
