Jonathan Cullen, Managing Director, Senior Property Manager
Jonathan founded Kairos Property Services in 2009 when an opportunity arose to manage a large mixed use development at Tallaght Cross East. Jonathan was employed to manage the facilities and operational elements in the development. Initially his efforts were focussed primarily on Tallaght Cross East due to its considerable size consisting of 441 apartments, The Glashaus Hotel and a large retail portfolio with Marks and Spencer as the anchor tenant. He ensured a reduction in service charges across the development with the re-negotiation of contracts for waste collection, mechanical and electrical services, security, cleaning and landscaping whilst maintaining the quality of service supplied by contractors. Jonathan also played an integral role in bringing the development from receivership status to sale agreed.
During his time in Tallaght Cross, Jonathan added a number of other developments to the Kairos portfolio. In 2014, he took the strategic decision to leave Tallaght Cross East to invest his time and focus his energy to developing and expanding Kairos. This paid dividend as Jonathan continued to add to the Kairos portfolio throughout 2014 including the addition of the mixed use Waterside Development in Malahide, Co. Dublin, The Hardwicke Village and Richmond Square in Dublin 7. Kairos also manages a number of blocks in partnership with Cullen Project Management including Newmarket Hall and Grosvenor Lodge.
Jonathan has over 20 years experience in the property sector. He was a senior sales/finishing manager to the Liam Carroll controlled group of companies with responsibility for closing thousands of sales in landmark sites across Dublin. During this time he had responsibility for numerous functions, closing sales, lettings, customer service, facilities management and property management.
Jonathan has spent the last 6 years working in Property Management and is highly proficient in all facets of the business from contract management through to service charge budgeting, management and debt collection.
Jonathan is currently studying for his BIFM Level 5 in Facilities Management in Portobello College.
