Trio of board appointments made by Allied Surveyors
Allied Surveyors Scotland has today announced three key promotions within its Residential Property division.
Ross MacDonald and Blair Ferguson, who have been with Allied since taking on university placements, as well as Gavin J Smith have all been made director.
The appointments will ensure Allied retains the quality and skills at board level to continue to grow the business and evolve for the future.
Chairman Grant Robertson said: “These promotions are tremendous news for the business and our clients. By retaining and nurturing our best talent, Allied can continue to deliver the high standard of service for which we are renowned, as well as developing and adapting for the future.
“We have a number of innovative market leading solutions to introduce soon, and these appointments are further testament to the bright future the business has ahead.”
Allied Surveyors Scotland has 32 offices across Scotland and provides a complete range of professional property services including residential and commercial property valuations, together with building surveying and building consultancy services.
With a growing staff base of more than 160 employees, the company has an annual turnover of over £14 million and a client base that comprises lawyers, estate agents, banks, builders, investors and developers.
Ross MacDonald and Blair Ferguson have nine years of service each with Allied, having both originally joined on university placements. Ross heads up the Hamilton office with Donald Watt, while Blair operates out of Dundee, alongside existing director Gary Black, covering Tayside and Angus.
Gavin J Smith re-joined Allied in September 2019, having originally trained with Murray and Muir who Allied Surveyors acquired in 2016, and covers East Dunbartonshire and Glasgow West.
He said: “It is fantastic to be with a progressive firm promoting staff to senior posts and encouraging the next generation of business leaders to grow and develop.”
