Our Team

Together we can do so much

At Revive Property our success rests on working with partners that we trust and rely upon.  Each one of our team is an expert in their field and excellent at what they do.  They are also great people who we can quickly consult about new ideas or projects.  Their collective experience is our strength.

Milesh Lakhani, Director

Milesh worked in the financial services sector for more than 18 years. He was ambitious and quickly climbed the career ladder.  But working long hours in a high pressure environment took their toll and in June 2013, married with a two-year-old son and a three-week-old daughter, Milesh suffered a severe and sudden illness. 

Although devastating at the time, the illness provided an opportunity for Milesh to re-frame his life and take a new direction.  In 2015 he made the decision to take control- both of his financial future, but more importantly of his time.  Developing properties has allowed him to do more of what he loves and prioritise time with his family.

Whilst Milesh has oversight over all areas of the business, he leads on bringing new opportunities to the business. He manages projects from qualifying right through to rent or sale.

Milesh also leads on business strategy and planning the longer term direction of Revive Property.  His previous experience of senior management in the financial sector brings professionalism and structure to the business.   

As well as developing property, Milesh is a public speaker, coach and property consultant.  He also works with schools to inspire young people to work for themselves and think about their financial future.

Chandni co-founded the company in 2015 and has been a pivotal part of the business since then. Chandni heads up operations and works with our partners to ensure the smooth running of the business day to day.

Chandni's vast experience in the public sector has given her experience of managing large, complex projects.  She also has experience of working with a variety of stakeholders and managing people and projects remotely.  These skills are essential for the work Chandni does at Revive Property.

Chandni also leads on analysis. She is passionate about collecting and making sense of data to gain insights that drive decision making in the company.
