Founder / Managing Director

Tariq Noor

Tariq founded his first business at the age of 23 with a small loan and within a few years developed the company into a well-respected brand within the financial sector. After successfully selling the business to a FTSE 250 company in 2012 he used the funds to launch his first property development business.

The business started by buying properties to extend and renovate in the crossrail catchment area. The company quickly expanded into building and converting prime properties in targeted areas within the Home Counties.

As he rapidly grew this business, Tariq gained invaluable experience, developing an extensive network at every layer of the property sector – from development finance right through to construction and contractors. This depth of knowledge and contacts combines effectively with Vivant’s innovative business model to great effect.
