Twenty-five years ago, Tenerife-based resort management company WimPen was part of construction giant George Wimpey’s European empire; today, WimPen provides management services for 13 resorts and communities in Tenerife, Lanzarote, La Gomera and the Costa del Sol, servicing 15,000 property owners.
MD Ivan Pengelly, who heads up the management team, led the management buyout of Wimpey Home Holdings in 1998. He brings to the management team an in-depth knowledge of the Spanish construction industry, having managed developments, from the land purchase stage through the construction process to completion, sales and resort management, during his career with WimPen.
Announcing the new affiliation with TATOC, Pengelly commented: “WimPen has been a member of RDO, formerly OTE, since its inception. However over the years, as our business has changed from that of a developer to resort management and administration, we have seen the need to focus upon an organisation that is dedicated to the ethics of our industry.”
Speaking about the new affiliation Harry Taylor, CEO of TATOC, said “We are absolutely delighted to have such a respected and established company like WimPen join the Association. We welcome their support and also the knowledge and expertise that they bring. I look forward to their ongoing participation”.
