Scottish commercial property consultancy, FG Burnett has made two key internal promotions.
Scott Strachan, who heads up the firm’s Rating Department is promoted to Director. Scott joined the company over 26 years ago as a Surveyor and steps up from Associate. Scott is hugely respected for his knowledge and wealth of experience in the area of Business Rates, having been involved in 7 rating revaluations. Scott also provides rating advice to oil and gas clients in relation to specialist energy sector installations.
Derek Richardson, Head of Valuation also moves up from Associate to Director. Derek joined the company in 2014 and is highly experienced in the area of commercial property and land valuation, providing advice to banks, pension funds, public bodies and private clients for a variety of purposes.
Richard Noble, Managing Director at FG Burnett comments:
“We pride ourselves in providing specialist advice to clients and that is illustrated by the distinct skill sets that Scott and Derek possess – Scott is the “go to” guy for rating advice. It is fair to say that providing commercial property valuations has been challenging in the last few years given market conditions and Derek’s forensic approach, working with our market engaged agency team has stood us in good stead. I am delighted for them both and look forward to further developing these areas of our business with them.”
