Chairman of Innes England leaves firm

Chairman of Innes England Tim Garratt has left the firm after 21 years.

Tim, who was formerly managing director for five years with Innes England, left the business on 31 December 2020.

Innes England MD Matthew Hannah announced the news of Tim’s departure stating that there had been an understanding since mid-2019 that Tim would leave the business to pursue other business interests.

Matt said: “We would like to thank Tim for his huge commitment to Innes England which spans more than two decades. He has been a well-known figure in the East Midlands property scene and we wish him well.

“Tim has been working on some projects away from our business including some large strategic land holdings and on potential acquisitions in the United States.

“He will be continuing to provide a service to some of his old established clients. Innes England will be working jointly in some instances to deliver agency and related services.”

Tim said: “I was always knew that having stepped down as MD, I needed to allow the remaining partners to run the business as they wanted to. I have had the privilege of working with some really talented people and I will miss them all. I wish the business every success for the future and will be looking forward to working with Matt and the team on some projects going forwards.”
