James Bailey, the managing partner of national chartered surveying firm, Bruton Knowles, has secured his role at the company for the next three years.
Having been re-elected following a challenging year, James said: “We’ve used this year to review our current strategy and create a new approach to drive the business forward. Areas of potential profit growth have been identified and we’ve launched a new National Valuations team alongside a Utilities and Infrastructure (U&I) team to capitalise on these opportunities.
“In addition, we’ve acquired a strong rural surveying practice with an excellent reputation and established client base in The West Midlands, with significant scope to expand into new areas for the business.”
James joined the business in 1998, as part of its utility, infrastructure, public sector and commercial teams. Responsible for leading the Nottingham office since 2006, he was instrumental in opening Bruton Knowles’ Manchester office in 2010. Bruton Knowles largest office remains in Gloucester, at Olympus House in Quedgeley.
He added: “My approach has always been to use the skill set within the firm to identify growth revenues, while working closely with our clients to deliver an honest, transparent and expert service, showcased by the number of industry leading and longstanding clients we serve – National Grid, Network Rail, Scottish Power and HS2 to name a few.
“Looking ahead to 2021, I am delighted to have been re-elected as Manging Partner. I will be focused on the further development of our strategic post lockdown strategy, whilst handling any yet to be seen implications from Brexit. We remain positive in that we can continue to do what we do best – deliver high quality consultancy advice for a wide range of clients – ultimately supporting the economic recovery of the country.”
