Ryden announce promotions across Scotland and the North

Commercial property consultant Ryden has promoted Andrew Cliff, Steven Gay and Richard Porter to the firm's Partnership taking the total number of Partners to 27. All three have been recognised for making an outstanding contribution to the growth of the firm in recent years.

A further eight staff members have been promoted to Associate level, taking the total number of Associates to 23, and two have been promoted to Senior Surveyor. Appointments take effect from 1 May 2007.

Andrew Cliff is based in the firm's Leeds office where he runs the Building Consultancy department. Andrew is one of the driving forces in the expansion of Ryden in the North of England. His recent projects have included the refurbishment of the Midland Hotel in Manchester and the refurbishment of the Amber Business Centre in Riddings.

Steven Gay and Richard Porter work in the firm's Investment & Finance group. Steven is a key member of the Glasgow team where he specialises in offices and has recently acquired Shaftsbury House and Intercity House for redevelopment. Richard is based in Edinburgh and works throughout the UK as one of the firm's investment experts. His projects have included the purchase of the corner block at 135 Princes Street in Edinburgh and the purchase of the Euston Novotel in London.

Five of the eight Associate promotions were in the firm's Glasgow office which has experienced a strong increase in turnover. Derek Archer in Investment & Finance, Charlie Lawrence in Industrial Agency & Development, Colin Tsang in Building Consultancy, Stephen Brown in Professional and Ged Hainey in the Planning team were all rewarded for their commitment to developing the business.

Building Consultancy Associate promotions were also made in Edinburgh, Alison Baker, and Aberdeen, Kenneth Macpherson. Paul Richardson, also in Aberdeen, was promoted to Associate within the Agency team.

The two Senior Surveyor appointments were Tim Jacobsen in Office Agency & Development and Raymond Burns in Professional, both based in Glasgow.

Fiona Morton, Ryden Managing Partner said "The volume of promotions we are awarding this year reflects the value we place on our staff and our ability to reward them for their dedication and enthusiasm. Steven Gay, Richard Porter and Andrew Cliff have each personally contributed to the success of Ryden and their new ideas and creativity will help shape the future of our firm. I am proud Ryden continues to produce so much home grown talent and we can offer clients consistent and dedicated teams. This is a great group, their energy and ability add significantly to Ryden and I am delighted with their success".
