Eddisons, the leading UK surveying practice, have today announced three directors will be joining in September to strengthen its agency and valuations teams across Liverpool.
David Baker, Robert Diggle and Steven Grindley are set to join from Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH), with the trio forming part of Eddisons’ continued investment into its team of property experts – ex-JLL head Mark Stupples was recently announced as a new Non-Executive Board member. This also follows on from the acquisitions of national property and business valuers practice Taylors (now Eddisons Taylors), along with auction specialists Pugh & Co. in 2016.
The property team at Eddisons now extends to over 50 chartered surveyors across the UK.
Speaking of the latest appointments Anthony Spencer, Head of Banking & Valuations at Eddisons, said: “We’re delighted to welcome three talented surveyors to Eddisons in Liverpool; between them they have over 50 years’ property experience, so they bring a wealth of expertise to our valuations and agency teams.
“Building a strong presence in Liverpool forms part of the company’s regionalisation strategy and enhances our ability to offer unrivalled knowledge across a broad spectrum of commercial, residential and specialist sectors.”
Anthony established the banking and insolvency operations at Eddisons in 2000, a team which now operates across ten UK offices to provide close support to a panel of major banks.
Having personally taken over 3,000 appointments as a fixed charge receiver, Anthony is an expert in bank advisory work and is often called upon to provide expert witness testimony.
With an international real estate background gained at a Big Four accounting practice, Anthony has undertaken assignments across Europe and the USA.
As a board director of Eddisons, Anthony was central to driving the successful sale of the business to Begbies Traynor Group plc in 2014 and has since been actively identifying opportunities to further grow and develop the Eddisons business.
