Ray WithersChief Executive / Co-Founder×
Chief Executive / Co-Founder
Ray studied Business and Engineering at Warwick University, and worked in London before moving into Management Consultancy (which brought him to Oxford). Ray founded Property Frontiers in 2004, and is still heavily involved in the overall strategy of the business and ensures we continue to pioneer our product and services and maintain our reputation as leaders in the market.
Ray is focused on developing three key attributes at Property Frontiers: that we pioneer the very best and most innovative property investments, create wealth for all our stakeholders, and build a reputation in the industry for doing both of these properly, over and over again.
Ray co-authored the best-selling property investment guide "Where to buy property abroad" and was a founding member of the AIPP (Association of International Property Professionals) and sat on the Board for several years. The AIPP aims to self-regulate and bring greater professionalism into the industry. Ray is also Founder, Trustee and keen supporter of the Frontiers Foundation and has been directly involved with many of its projects.
When Ray isn't working or travelling (which isn't very often), he relaxes by watching rugby and motorsport and spending time with his growing family. Rumour has it that he's learning how to fly too - but we don't think it's a good idea to clip his wings too soon.
