Property firm Sanderson Weatherall has boosted headcount at its Newcastle office following the appointment of its sixth new chartered surveyor since the start of the year.
The business, a leading independent practice of chartered surveyors and property consultants, employs around 200 staff at its offices in Leeds, London, Newcastle, Manchester, Teesside and Bristol.
The firm’s Newcastle office has now appointed Darren Naylor, an experienced chartered surveyor, as well as making promotions of a number of key staff members.
Mr Naylor joins the valuation team as senior surveyor and will carry out valuation work for banks, corporate and private clients across the region.
The other recent recruits to the practice include Martin Smith, Jade Hadden and Amanda Haldane who have joined the building consultancy team as associate partner and graduate surveyors respectively.
Emily Seager has also joined the asset management department as an associate partner to deal with landlord and tenant matters, while Charlotte Marshall has joined the commercial and retail agency team on a year’s placement from Northumbria University.
Sanderson Weatherall has also promoted Alex Slack from surveyor to senior surveyor, while Kevin McGorie, Victoria Bollands and Kenny Hiles have all been made associate partners, having previously been senior surveyors.
David Downing, partner in Sanderson Weatherall’s valuation team, said: “We are very pleased that Darren and the other new starters have chosen to join us at Sanderson Weatherall. Our recruitment of so many talented new colleagues is great news after the last few years of turmoil in the commercial property market.
“This recruitment drive is indicative of both our commitment to growing the practice in the region and the increased level of activity in the commercial property market since the turn of the year.”
