Following its recent merger with Hardies Property & Construction Consultants, Shepherd Chartered Surveyors has appointed nine new partners across its commercial and residential surveying departments and added an office in Dalkeith, taking its network throughout Scotland to 34.
Shepherd’s commercial property office in Edinburgh is enhanced by the promotion to partner of Anthony Bennett and Colin Campbell, who heads up the rapidly expanding commercial property management department covering Scotland.
Residential surveyors Stuart Dunne, Christopher Hunter, Andrew Neil and Andrew Sykes are promoted to partners operating in Aberdeen, Stirling, Paisley and Peterhead respectively.
And as a consequence of the realignment of Hardies following the merger, its entire valuation department has transferred across to Shepherd, resulting in the appointment of three new residential partners in Neil Moir, Paul Duncan and Keith Gifford in Aberdeen, Fife and Dalkeith respectively.
Commenting on the promotions and office expansion, George Brewster, senior partner, said: “Congratulations to each of our new partners whose well-deserved promotions have been made in recognition of the tremendous contribution each has made to the continuing growth of the partnership.
“We are delighted, too, to add to our branch network Dalkeith, where Hardies has been represented, covering Midlothian. The addition of Dalkeith fits our strategy of providing local market knowledge in all of Scotland’s major towns and cities.
“We continue to explore and appraise these opportunities as they arise and expect to make further announcements in this regard throughout this year.”
