Eddisons, the property services and chartered surveying firm, has announced that Mark Stupples will join the business in a non-executive capacity with immediate effect whilst at the same time being appointed as a non-executive director of Eddisons’ parent company, Begbies Traynor Group plc.
Mark, 55, has spent his entire career in property services. He joined JP Sturge (which became King Sturge) as a graduate trainee in 1984 and was appointed to its UK management board in 2000. He served as UK managing partner from 2008 until 2011, during which he negotiated the sale of that business to JLL (the leading, global professional services and investment management firm specialising in real estate). Following the acquisition, Mark was appointed as JLL’s UK chief operating officer until leaving the business in December 2016 and during this time, he completed and integrated a number of UK acquisitions, including WA Ellis in 2014 and Integral in 2016.
Commenting on Mark's appointment, Richard Roe, Managing Director of Eddisons said:
"We are delighted to welcome the arrival of Mark to join the Eddisons business as he brings with him a wealth of experience given his senior roles within leading UK property firms. Mark is ideally suited to help Eddisons achieve its ambitious growth objectives and his expertise of managing growing property services businesses and strategic insight will be invaluable as the Eddisons business continues to evolve both organically and through selected acquisition.”
