New Appointments

 We are pleased to announce the appointment of two new members of staff, Garry Becconsall and Sophie Endacott.

Garry Becconsall BSc (Hons), who is a former professional rugby player, joins our Commercial Department from Miller and Son (a separate company) where he gained a wealth of experience in residential development, as well as being involved with the Commercial and Business Transfer side of things.

Head of the Commercial Department, Rob Redgrave, says "despite the current economic climate, our department is extremely busy. Jon Ball, who has relocated to the warmer climes of Thailand, leaves big shoes to fill and we think Garry is the man for the job".

Graduate, Sophie Endacott BSc (Hons) Property Management & Investment, has been taken on under the "Unlocking Cornish Potential" scheme. 21 year old Sophie will be mainly working in the Professional Department undertaking valuations, rent reviews, lease renewals and development appraisals.

Sophie comments "I'm excited about the new position. As part of my appointment I will be studying over the next two years for exams which will enable me to become an RICS qualified Chartered Surveyor. "

Partner, Brian Botting says "this is the second graduate from the University of the West of England we have taken on in the last two years. Sophie's qualifications are ideally suited to our requirements in order to service the needs of clients".
