Three partner promotions in Sanderson Weatherall Machinery & Business Assets and ABL Valuation & Advisory Teams

Sanderson Weatherall have recently made a trio of partner announcements in their asset-based lending and machinery and business asset teams across their Leeds and Manchester offices.

They are Chris Brooke (Asset Based Lending, Leeds), Mark Rowlands (Machinery and Business Assets, Manchester) and Stephen Jepson (Machinery and Business Assets, Manchester).

The promotions follow another strong quarter of trading for the teams that, despite the Covid-19 Pandemic have not only maintained their service offering but continued to build upon their existing client base as well.

Neil Simpson, head of Machinery & Business Assets and Christian Humphreys head of ABL Valuation & Advisory at Sanderson Weatherall commented, “Chris, Mark and Stephen have consistently demonstrated their ability deliver independent valuation appraisal and disposal advice of the highest quality, to build strong client relationships and have become invaluable members of the team over their time at SW.

“The pandemic has undoubtedly been a challenging time for all businesses, not least the real estate and business assets industry. Throughout this difficult period we have continued to invest and develop the business and these promotions further demonstrate our commitment to growth as we look forward to the coming period.”
