Fisher German makes a string of promotions

Yan Gittins has been promoted to a B Partner at Fisher German.

A leading national property consultancy has made 21 promotions across the business as part of the firm’s ongoing growth.

Fisher German has made the string of promotions – including three partner promotions – as part of its career progression framework, which gives colleagues a continual pathway for professional development.

Yan Gittins, who has been integral in leading the firm’s West Midlands region for the last 10 years, has progressed to a B Partner. Yan, based at the firm’s Worcester office, specialises in rural estate management which he has done for 25 years in and around the county.

Matthew Hodgetts, also based in Worcester, has been invited to join the equity partnership as a C Partner. He plays a vital role in the firm’s delivery of infrastructure schemes on behalf of acquiring authorities in the Midlands and South West, and also has a wealth of experience providing advice on land rights and compensation.

Matthew Trewartha, based at the firm’s Ashby office, has also been invited to join the equity partnership and will become a C Partner. He manages several national property portfolios and recently led the opening of the firm’s new Exeter office.

Fisher German has made a further 18 promotions across its offices, marking the firm’s continuing success across a number of specialisms.

The announcement comes as the business formally merges with Birmingham-based Vine Property Management, which manages 51 million sq. ft. of retail, industrial and office property, following a deal in 2020.

Fisher German Senior Partner Tim Shuldham said that it is fantastic to be in a position to make such a strong number of promotions after what has been an unprecedented year for the sector.

He said: “I would like to congratulate all of those who have been promoted and thank everyone across the business who has helped us progress during what has been an incredibly challenging time for the sector.

“It is a tribute to the quality and hard work of all our colleagues, the strength of our client base and the robust foundations of our business that we are able to make this announcement.

“Not only have we made 21 promotions across a variety of disciplines, we have also recruited 28 graduates into the firm with more positions to fill.

“During the last year Fisher German has maintained a seamless and quality service to our clients which we will continue to deliver going forward as we grow and strengthen the business further.”
