Going for growth: Vail Williams recruiting amid market-leading deal results

wantspacegotspace.co.uk - Going for growth: Vail Williams recruiting amid market-leading deal resultsProperty agent Vail Williams is bucking the economic gloom with new appointments, major clients and market-leading results in Hampshire.

The company, which has had offices in Southampton and Portsmouth for more than 40 years, is eyeing growth in its Solent region, particularly in planning.

For the year to October 2012, it ranked Vail Williams top in Hampshire both for the most deals secured to dispose of space: 42, and also space acquired: 17,553 square feet.

Major clients have included University of Southampton Science Park, housing association Radian, industrial property company Segro, property fund manager Highcross and a number of the big banks.

Among those joining the 20-strong regional team is Ben Christian (23), who has been recruited as a graduate planner for the Solent region as the company expands both regionally and nationally.

Ben, who lives in Southampton, previously worked as a planning assistant at Southampton City Council and in a similar role for housebuilder Foreman Homes. He has an MSc in Town Planning and a BSc (hons) in Oceanography with Physical Geography.

He said: “I want to work for Vail Williams as they are a very driven company with an exciting future and I am keen to develop my career through obtaining chartered membership to the Royal Town Planning Institute.”

Vail Williams Associate David Ramsay added: “Ben’s appointment follows consistent growth of the planning team in the Solent region, which is due to the success of the planning team in winning new business in what is still a challenging market.
