July 3rd 2017

Birmingham based independent property consultancy Pennycuick Collins has announced three senior promotions.

Samuel Boot, one of the region’s leading experts in valuation and leasehold reform, has been promoted to Partner having joined Pennycuick Collins nine years ago as a graduate surveyor from Birmingham City University and progressed his career within the firm. His promotion brings the total number of partners to seven.

James Bridge joined the firm in 2015 and is promoted to Associate Partner in the firm’s commercial property team. James specialises in property management and surveying predominantly for office, commercial and industrial buildings, working with many of Pennycuick Collins’ longstanding retained clients.

A relative newcomer to Pennycuick Collins having joined earlier this year, Dale Jones is now promoted to Associate Partner in the residential block management team, having played a key role in expanding the number of retained instructions in recent months. The residential block management division now has 14 staff working exclusively in this part of the business and is one of the largest block management teams in the West Midlands.

Speaking about the promotions, Charles Gillett, Partner, commented: “We are delighted to reward the hard work, commitment and dedication demonstrated by these talented individuals to our business and clients. Internal promotions are a vital part of the firm’s human resources strategy and serve as well-deserved recognition of the contribution made by Sam, Dale and James to Pennycuick Collins’ considerable successes this year.”

New partner Samuel Boot added: “I am thrilled to be joining the Partner team at this time and looking forward to the responsibility that brings for helping to shape the future strategic direction of the business. The support given to me throughout my career at Pennycuick Collins has enabled me to achieve partnership at a relatively young age. I hope my promotion will inspire colleagues at all levels to set personal goals for their professional development and to realise their own individual ambitions.”
