Eamonn Boylan, Chief Executive; Greater Manchester Combined Authority
Alongside Tors, Sally is the co-founder of Taylor Fay Homes.
Sally worked as a TV producer for many years, producing daytime shows and music concerts. She’s always had a passion for renovating houses, particularly terraced houses. “I just love the element of surprise when you walk in…the space, the light and the high ceilings all amount to a stunning home”.
Sally has worked on some exciting productions, but believes that nothing is more exciting than enabling someone to buy their first home!
“The community spirit here in Manchester is so vibrant it’s easy to see why I love doing what I do.”
As co-founder of Taylor Fay Homes, Victoria has been developing properties in East Manchester for a number of years, and enjoys bringing old unloved terraces back to their former glory.
Tors holds a degree BSc (Hons) in computing and engineering, and 16 years of experience in television, both in front and and behind the camera. She presented live and pre recorded shows and became a series producer at the BBC in London.
Victoria’s knowledge of East Manchester is unsurpassed. Her grandparents lived in the Gorton and Moston area, so when she moved back from London, it wasn’t long before she came back to her roots and started investing in East Manchester.
