SHEPHERD Chartered Surveyors has promoted Aberdeen-based residential Partner Stuart Dunne to its Management Board to reflect on growth and deliver succession planning as a series of promotions across its residential and commercial operations in Scotland.

Mr Dunne joined the firm 16 years ago as a university student while completing his degree before graduating with First-Class Honours in 2007. After graduation he joined the Aberdeen office qualifying as a Chartered Surveyor in 2008 before being appointed Associate in 2012 and Partner in 2016.

Commenting on his promotion Mr Dunne said: “The firm is experiencing a period of growth and I am delighted to join the Management Board at this time. We are always looking forward and I am fully committed to developing and evolving our business over the coming decades.

“Whilst I now have a larger remit within the firm, I remain fully committed to my clients and will still be very much on the ground completing Home Reports and valuations.  

“Despite the various challenges the local economy and housing market have faced over the past five years and over the course of the pandemic, there is some evidence that the housing market has turned the corner. We have experienced strong market activity over the last 18 months and there are positive signs that will continue into 2022.”

Fellow Aberdeen-based Managing Partner Chris Grinyer said: “This is a well-deserved promotion for Stuart who has made an invaluable contribution to our residential operation across the North East in particular, and to the progress of the firm as we continue to explore new growth opportunities.”

In addition to Mr Dunne, the Partnership has promoted Edinburgh-based Donal Henretty to the Management Board. Three new residential Partners have been appointed in St Andrews, David Marr, in Dundee Barry Reid, and Michael Rutherford in Galashiels.

The firm has also promoted four surveyors to Associate level in Adam Honeyman in Glasgow Commercial, Tony Burns in Glasgow West End, Steven Mackie in Dunfermline and Nick Hay, in Edinburgh. 

Commenting on the promotions, George Brewster, Senior Partner said: “As the residential and commercial property markets across Scotland continue to evolve from the on-going impact of the pandemic and the Partnership continues to gain ground, these promotions are testimony to the contribution made by these individuals to their clients and the firm over time. Congratulations to each of them.

“These promotions illustrate the youth and energy of our business, which has its roots firmly within our graduate training programme. Out of the nine promotions seven of these surveyors started their career as graduates with Shepherd, demonstrating we offer a secure and progressive career platform for ambitious chartered surveyors coupled with a stimulating environment within which talented people will grow and thrive.”

Originating in Scotland in 1880, with a network of 34 offices, Shepherd offers a multi-disciplinary property service encompassing a comprehensive range of residential and commercial services.
