Russell Start joins the AGM Group, the moving and relocation business, where he will take on the role of Managing Director. He joins AGM Group from Pickfords where he was also Managing Director.
Russell’s career spans 36 years, during which time he held senior roles within both the corporate and consumer sides of the relocation industry.
Starting 30 July 2018, he will lead the progression and sustainable growth of AGM Group’s core businesses; Gerson Relocation, Abels Moving and Momentous Fine Art; and the development of new strategic enterprises as part of a long-term strategy.

Russell says; “I am absolutely delighted to be joining AGM Group this summer, it will be a privilege to work with such tremendous brands and I am thoroughly looking forward to helping put the group at the forefront of the UK market. The opportunity to join such a distinguished group and help them deliver the ambitious growth plans they have was too much of an opportunity to miss. I believe there is enormous scope for growth in the Group’s existing markets and brands, as well as tremendous opportunity to add additional revenue streams to the Group’s portfolio.”
