National property consultancy Carter Jonas LLP which has offices in Leeds, York, Harrogate and Boroughbridge has appointed Simon Pallett as its new chairman.
Mr Pallett, is a partner of the firm and takes over from John Henniker-Major who has been chairman since 2007.
“It is a great honour to be elected by my fellow partners to head the firm, which has grown exponentially over the last decade in order to offer a more complete service to our larger and increasingly varied client base,” said Mr Pallett.
“A combination of organic growth and a series of mergers and acquisitions has seen Carter Jonas expand the breadth of its operations across its planning and development, commercial, residential and rural teams. The firm now has over 700 people working from 35 offices nationwide.”
Mark Granger, chief executive, Carter Jonas, said, “John Henniker-Major has successfully overseen much of the change that has brought us so far in the last ten years.
“This is an exciting time for the firm and we have an ambitious growth strategy in place in order to attract excellent people and to continue to provide the very best service for our clients.
“I very much look forward to working closely with Simon to realise our exciting plans for further expansion over the next five years.”
