DCC do have a glass ofice in Aspen Golf reception and did ask if MRI have changed their name and was told NO. I did read somewhere else that it has been set up by Wendy Macanthony and someone else, for what reason I don't know.

There were booklets advertising silver mounntains in Aspen Golf and they had DCC splashed all over them. MRI have moved in to new offices in Marbella over looking the marina for what that's worth!

hmmmm, well lets be honest they wouldn't set up another company doing exactly the same unless they were winding up the old one.

I just hope this doesn't affect MRI construction for the aspen heights development.

Short message, as I'm posting on the mobile! I wanted to explain what I was told. They will be forfilling exsisting contracts (she specifically mentioned furniture packs) by using a 3rd party. I can't get to her name from here but will pm you.

To be honest it happens, all companies bull and the credit crunch will hit them hard as their business is all about the global housing bubble.I just want to see that they forfill their remaining contracts one way or another.

[quote=CEO Michael Liggan]
DCC International Property to forge its own way, says CEO
DCC International Property,


recently set up by ex-MRI Overseas Property CEO Michael Liggan, opened its doors to business on 15 December 2008, and is currently promoting new-build projects in Cyprus, Bulgaria, Portugal, Romania, Spain and the USA, as well as resale properties in these regions.

With DCC currently promoting MRI projects, and occupying some of the MRI offices that had been closed down due to downsizing in the current economic climate, there have been rumours of a rebrand.

But Liggan, confirming that DCC was “completely independent” of MRI Overseas Property, said: “DCC doesn’t have any exclusive agreement to market or sell MRI developments and indeed currently doesn’t have any other exclusive agreements for the many other developments it will be marketing.”

Clarifying the relationship with MRI and its board, Liggan added: “I have a very close relationship to Darragh MacAnthony [MRI's chairman]; not only was I the CEO for his group of companies for many years but I am also his best friend.

“Because of this a lot of industry people have assumed that DCC is really MRI in disguise when that simply isn’t the case.

“The truth of the situation is that Darragh wants to focus more of his time on developing and constructing projects around the world and also developing his football club Peterborough United and trying to get them promoted this season and in the next season until they’re in the Premiership.

“With Darragh not wanting to focus on taking over yet more of his ‘territories’ for his real estate company there is an opportunity for someone like me to want to do this and I believe the industry needs it.

“With Darragh planning on downsizing MRI Overseas Property I felt that now is the obvious time to go for it. Yes, we’re going through a worldwide credit crunch but times like this are often considered the best time to start a new company and for me that means I have direct access to taking on some of the best staff in the industry and also some of the best offices out there”.

Dominic Pickering, CEO of MRI, added: “It’s not a rebrand. We’ve spent 8 years building the MRI brand. We offered DCC the option of taking on the leases of some of our office space in Cyprus and Spain. They took up the offer and have even recruited some of the people we had to let go.”
