Wimbledon Offices Ltd was established in the early 1960s to take forward the construction of Tuition House, opened in 1969 as the home of The Rapid Results College (RRC). RRC was the original family business founded by David Young in 1928. Ian Young and David M Young, who were both sons of David Young, later served as Principals of RRC.
Today the business is principally a property company owning and letting offices and flats in Wimbledon. It continues to be run by the Young family.
Daughter of David M Young, joined RRC working in the accounts department. She then left to have a family returning in to work on a part time basis to help with the accounts and becoming increasingly more active in other parts of the business and in 2005 was appointed Managing Director. Jean enjoys getting to know all the tenants in the offices and flats, and it is particularly satisfying seeing companies growing and being able to help with their expanding office needs. She is a keen sportswoman and has completed the London marathon and several triathlons including a half ironman. She grows a selection of fruit and vegetables at her allotment.
Brother of Jean, was Principal of RRC from 1985 to 2000, and from 1993 he became increasingly involved in the property side of the business. He managed the development of The Courtyard. Prior to joining the business in 1978 he qualified as a Chartered Accountant. Outside interests include travelling, the theatre and playing Bridge.
Facilities & IT Director
Son of Jean Taylor, is the fourth generation of the family to be involved in the business. From an early age, he insisted on working in his school holidays particularly enjoying the electrical tasks. He joined the staff in 2006 working part-time on the maintenance team whilst studying for his electrical qualifications. He is passionate about seeing the infrastructure at our properties neatly organised and documented. His outside interests include cycling and IT, and his knowledge of IT has also been very useful to the company and our tenants.
New Projects Director
Sister of Jean and Andrew, has recently joined the company to focus on the development of new buildings and is currently leading the redevelopment of 247 The Broadway. Pauline enjoys the planning, organisation, and challenge of building projects. She lives in Hertfordshire and enjoys golf, gardening and walking.
As the Operations Director of Wimbledon Offices Ltd, Daniel Akerman brings a wealth of experience in facilities management. Having joined the company in October 2018, he has quickly established himself as a valuable member of the team, responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations of the business as well as handling HR matters. Beyond his professional life, Daniel is an avid fisherman and enjoys travelling.
Daughter of Andrew Young, Cara is the second fourth-generation member to be a director in the business.
