Eddisons Taylors, the property and trading business valuation specialist formed when Eddisons acquired Northampton firm Taylors Business Surveyors and Valuers in 2015, has appointed a new Midlands-based chartered Surveyor and valuations expert as part of a strategy to continue to grow the business over the coming months. Chris Worrall joins the firm as associate director.
Chris, a specialist in the leisure, healthcare medical and education sectors, in particular, has joined Eddisons Taylors from the Birmingham office of property consultant Vail Williams, having previously worked for Pinders, part of the Christie Group. With more than 15 years’ experience of delivering trading valuations of businesses on behalf of lending institutions, he has in-depth national knowledge of a wide range of sectors
“I have had a national remit although over recent years focused on the Midlands – specifically the Birmingham market – and have built up a substantial body of contacts. My background fits well with Eddisons Taylors’ ambitions for growth in the region, and their already extensive client base. My strengths cover a wide range of trading asset valuations, from hotels, pubs, caravan parks and petrol filling stations to doctors’ practices, children’s day nurseries, pharmacies and dental practices” said Chris.
“I’m looking forward to helping Eddisons Taylors expand in these industries, as well as growing the Birmingham and wider Midlands client base,” he added.
Chris Mitchell, director at Eddisons Taylors, said: “Chris’ in-depth knowledge of the specialist areas within which we already operate will further strengthen and add depth to our team. We are seeing an escalating demand for our services in all of these sectors, particularly from within our extensive list of lending clients.
“The Eddisons Taylors brand is becoming ever more widely known and we are expanding our presence both in Birmingham and the wider Midlands area as well as nationally. Further similar appointments are also in the pipeline.”
