A leading North East property firm has welcomed the head of its new department as the company continues in its rapid expansion.
Chartered surveyors and estate agents Bradley Hall, one of the most active agents in the region, has appointed Jonathan Rudge as head of its land, development and new homes team.
Jonathan, a former partner at international consultancy Cushman and Wakefield, will oversee all of Bradley Hall’s strategic and site-specific development advice to occupiers, investors, developers and public policy makers.
His appointment will also see the launch of the company’s land, development & new homes department which has been introduced to continue and grow the firm’s ability to provide specialist advisory services to property developers and house builders of all sizes.
Jonathan said: “This is an exciting time for the region’s land, development and new homes sector, and an equally significant time for Bradley Hall as it continues growing its success and business.
“I am delighted to be joining the team of such a reputable firm which is dedicated to the development of the North East property sector. The demand for new housing and current activity in the regional market means that such services are highly required, and we have already hit the ground running and have a number of exciting projects underway.”
The new team will also be supported by senior surveyor Josie Streets, who specialises in new build homes. She also joins the firm following a successful career at Cushman and Wakefield and seven years of experience in the industry.
Bradley Hall managing director Neil Hart said; “Our presence and projects across the region are going from strength to strength and we have chosen an outstanding new head of department to lead our land, development and new homes team.
“The demand for these services has significantly increased, which is why we decided to implement a specialist team headed by an industry expert. Jonathan brings a wealth of professional experience and expertise of the sector to Bradley Hall, and we look forward to seeing this department thrive under his leadership.”
