I have over 40 years’ experience commencing in 1977 with the majority of that time spent at Partner/Director level, developing and managing building surveying services within the various permutations of Bernard Thorpe and DTZ which ultimately became Cushman and Wakefield.
I am active in all aspects of building surveying but take a particular interest in Project Management, Employers Agent, Due Diligence and Dilapidations. My client and sector lists are very broad and cover the full spectrum of the property industry including education and the public sector. The opportunity to work with the talented individuals in Black Cat was too good to miss, so retirement can wait a while!
My personal time is spent mostly gardening, taking walks in the countryside as a means to keep fit and spending time with my wife, children and family whenever I get the chance to see them. In the most recent years, I have become a grandfather for the first time and spending time with her is truly one of my most favourite things to do as it is quite amusing to see what new fangled ideas have cropped up since my children were young. Although it may seem that my personal time is quite a sedate life, have no fear because if I am allowed near a trampoline, go-kart or axe-throwing, I become a fiend and am at the front of the queue for my turn.
