We have strengthened our foothold in the North East commercial sector, providing a greater range of services and expanding the team with three recruits into our Newcastle office.
James Cullen has joined the team as Associate and will lead the Building Surveying team. James joins the team from a previous role at Building Surveyors Ltd and brings with him specialist surveying expertise in commercial building surveying, with a focus on acquisition and investment surveys, dilapidations, asset management and project works.
Speaking about his appointment, James said: “Establishing the building surveying service offering at George F. White represents a fantastic opportunity where Building Surveying aligns perfectly with the needs of its ever diversifying client base. I have always been passionate about building surveying and this role gives me a fantastic opportunity to establish a new team. I am delighted that within the first few weeks we have already established a market presence in Newcastle and the offering has been universally well received, with new work coming in already for private and corporate clients.”
In addition to James, the team has also appointed Victoria Huntley and Rhys Jones as Graduate Surveyors and to expand the team’s Commercial and Planning and Development team capability. Both are based at our Newcastle centre office.
Victoria joins the firm as a Graduate Commercial surveyor and will focus on commercial valuations, landlord and tenant and property management work. Rhys will be based within the our Newcastle planning and development team and his primary role there will be to assist with valuations of development property.
Richard Garland, Head of Tyne and Wear, added: “Since opening our Tyne and Wear offices last year, we have seen a great take up for our services, including the commercial property offering and have attracted a whole new client type. The ongoing evolution of the firm continues and I am delighted to now be able to provide a Building Surveying offering alongside strengthening our Commercial Property and Planning and Development teams. All three have shown fantastic energy and passion for what they do and a dedication to quality and client service which is the core of everything we are about.”
