The commercial property team at the Yorkshire offices of Knight Frank has been boosted with the qualification of two chartered surveyors.

The Yorkshire office, which is split between Leeds and Sheffield, has seen James Green, 23, and William Turnbull, 23, graduate as chartered surveyors to work with the established team, confirmed as the most active industrial agency in Yorkshire.

William Turnbull will complement the Sheffield office, working alongside partner Peter Whiteley as office head, while James Green operates out of the Leeds office, under the leadership of partner and head of the Yorkshire team, Henrie Westlake.

Peter Whiteley, partner at Knight Frank, said: “The team we have built to cover the Yorkshire commercial region will benefit from William and James’ qualifications as chartered surveyors, which will allow them to share more of the workload and to build their knowledge of the regional market.”

William and James join a 56-strong team, with 20 staff at the Sheffield office and 36 based in Leeds.

William Turnbull, said: “I am now looking forward to the next stage of my career development, which will involve a greater level of engagement with client relationships.

“Working for Knight Frank offers a lot of resources to tap into and experience on a wide range of projects, from more responsibility on smaller jobs to collective involvement on much larger transactions.”

James Green,added: “The Knight Frank graduate programme has been excellent in terms of supporting our career progression.

“Because we have such a wealth of experience across the Yorkshire office to learn from, it makes the process of transition to qualified chartered surveyor much smoother and the breadth of projects from dilapidations through to development projects is vast so it is very interesting work.”

James studied at Leeds Beckett Universirty and William graduated from Sheffield Hallam University, both achieving a BSc (Hons) in Building Surveying.
