What is our background?
Johnnie Dickinson Johnnie Dickinson
Johnnie was a partner for fourteen years in Smiths Gore, one of the country’s leading firms of rural property agents which manages over 1.5 million acres of land. His early background was in estate management looking after private estates usually with Historic Houses and for five years was a Crown Estate Receiver (senior property manager) in Scotland. He practiced throughout much of the UK managing properties in the South West (3 years), the Midlands, North East and North West (15 years) and Scotland (9 years) and therefore has extensive contacts with property owners nationally.

Johnnie specialised in exploring diversification opportunities for property owners which lead to his involvement in special events. He established a Special Events Department for Smiths Gore; however in September 2002 he left the Smiths Gore partnership to set up Synario with Nicola.
Nicola Dickinson Nicola Dickinson

She helped the business to build up a membership of more than 20,000 selling its own branded products to top quality outlets throughout the UK.
