Dougie Fraser – Property Manager
Dougie joined New View late in 2015 as Property Manager. He is currently studying for the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) examinations leading to the professional accreditation in property letting. Prior to New View he spent nearly ten years as sales manager at Windhorse Trading in Cambridge working with key clients and directing sales team activities. Originally trained as a Molecular Biologist in Scotland and having worked in both academic and pharmaceutical environments, he developed an interest in Bioethics whilst working for a Cambridge biotechnology company. His interest subsequently broadened into an exploration of the role of ethics in the modern world, and particularly in business. This is what drew him first of all to Windhorse, and now New View Residential. He has lived in Cambridge for the last 15 years.
