Lancashire Entrepreneur is among the cream of younger business leaders in the North West

Jeremy Lefton, director of Preston-based Roundhouse Properties, has been chosen as one of the North West’s stand out young business leaders, making this year’s prestigious 42 under 42 list, by one of the region’s top business journals, The Insider.

The 42 under 42 programme recognises some of the North West’s most dynamic and inspirational young entrepreneurs, celebrating their success in helping to grow the regional economy.

Heading up Roundhouse Properties, the company prides itself in offering first class, office and industrial accommodation, mainly for the small to medium sized enterprise (SME) sector, in locations that are strategically positioned as well as attractive places to work. Tenants include, ITV, North West Aerospace Alliance, Morison International and the NHS to name but a few.

Lefton was singled-out for his eight years of experience in the property industry and for the hands-on role he takes with the business, whilst being heralded for achieving stunning results around the M6/M61 corridor in Lancashire.

At just 29 years old Lefton has been instrumental in increasing Roundhouses' sales, in addition to leading sales at its Momentum developments at both South Rings and Buckshaw, whilst ensuring tenants are well looked after.

Commenting on the feat, Jeremy Lefton said: It’s a great honour to be selected and a huge thrill to gain recognition on the back of the success of the business. But it’s not just about me, it’s also down to the support I get from the entire team at Roundhouse Properties, who have helped shape the company into the level it exists today.” In his spare time, Lefton is quite the competitive sportsman, taking part in numerous challenging races, whilst raising money for charities close to his own heart. Most recently he completed the Marathon des Sables, coined the toughest footrace on earth, in temperatures in excess of 50 degrees in the Sahara desert.
