CKD Galbraith Continues On Pathway of Growth & Development

CKD Galbraith, Scotland’s leading independent property consultancy, has strengthened its commercial and rural divisions with a number of new appointments and promotions.

The expansion of the firm’s services follows a successful transition period with new chief executive, Pam Over, in post since January.

CKD Galbraith’s continued growth includes a notable expansion of its commercial property division.

The firm will provide a UK-wide specialist investment agency brokerage service led by two highly experienced practitioners in the commercial sector.

Jamie Thain and Will Sandwell, who worked together for more than 10 years at GVA and James Barr, join as Partner and Associate respectively. They will be based out of the George Street Edinburgh office, where the firm’s headquarters moved ten years ago this month.

The firm’s rural business stream welcomes both the new appointment of land agent Alice Wilson to the Ayr office, returning to her farming based roots, and also the 2017 intake of five rural management and agency graduates in their offices throughout Scotland, with a number  returning to the firm following successful student work experience placements last year.

The firm has also announced new financial year promotions, including Alistair Christie, Charlotte Maclean, Claire Acheson, and Harry Stott who make the step-up from associate to Senior Associate. In addition Anna Henderson, Dan Campernile, Hannah Christiansen, Lucie Howatson, Marion Currie, Poppy Baggott, Rachel Myles and Willy Inglis have been promoted to Associates.

Pam Over said: “The firm is enhancing the breadth of knowledge, ability and professional excellence available to clients. We have a strong track record as multi-sector advisors and will continue to add additional capacity through recruitment and training, together with  promotion and career development to ensure the  firm’s various divisions  offer clients the very best advice and opportunities.”
