Former Premier League player and manager Iain Dowie enters Property Industry:

For many of us familiar with the name Iain Dowie will no doubt have pictured in our mind this cheeky chap who floated about many football clubs during his career most notably with Southampton and West Ham yet also Oldham Athletic, Crystal Palace, Charlton Athletic, and Coventry City.

Ian has now joined the team at Go To Surveys to sit alongside company founder and CEO Nigel Hoath and COO Eliot Young. The company which “undertake HomeBuyers Reports, Building Surveys and Valuations throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland” has welcomed onboard Ian as Regional Sales Director.

This obviously follows not long after Dion Dublin (ex Manchester United football player) joined h,the BBC Property Show ‘Homes Under the Hammer’ in 2015: Read the Guardian report here.

Go To Surveys added to Ian’s profile: “Having experienced the excitement of playing international football and managing at a high level Iain is equally excited to be joining the innovative and dynamic GOTO group.

So, which other names from the world of football can we see turning to the property industry? It certainly is a very rich business to get in to and many ex players / managers will bring with them great PR opportunities and possibly still an army of followers, especially if they are active on social media (Iain does not appear to be… yet!).

We may very well keep an eye out for an ex player for our selves, retweets from Cristiano Ronaldo out to his would be very welcomed to his 40 million + followers!
