DM Hall, one of Scotland’s largest independent firms of Chartered Surveyors, has made a number of changes to its management structure following a vote held every three years amongst the 23 partners. All of the changes are effective from 1 January 2017.
West region-based residential surveyor, Eric Curran, remains Managing Partner.
Eric Curran said: “I am delighted to be leading a strong firm with a robust management structure into the New Year and for another three years.
“I believe that despite all the stresses in the marketplace, we will continue to grow as a firm and we will continue to serve our clients with the professionalism and integrity that they deserve.”
John Albiston, who manages DM Hall’s Inverness office, which he opened 32 years ago, becomes Senior Partner, replacing Aberdeen’s Keith Jones who has retired from the partnership and is now a consultant to the firm.
Mr Albiston said: “I am honoured to have been elected Senior Partner in a firm of which I am so proud. I am determined that as Senior Partner I will help guide the firm to continued success.”
Alan Gordon, based in Glasgow, will remain as Principal Commercial Partner for the firm.
The Senior Partner, Managing Partner and Principal Commercial Partner are joined in DM Hall’s management committee by Irvine’s John McHugh, Alasdair Seaton from Dunfermline, Shaun Peddie, a Partner in the Aberdeen office, all of whom are residential surveyors, and Graham Todd, who is a Commercial Partner. Alan Patrick, the firm’s Financial Partner, is also an ex officio member of the Committee.
