Scott Tyler

Allsop has announced that Scott Tyler is to become Senior Partner of Allsop as Neil Mackilligin is set to stand down as a Partner in March 2016. Scott will become only the sixth Senior Partner in its 110 year history

Tyler, 47, who is currently Managing Partner of the Commercial side of the business will take over the Senior Partner role at the end of March 2016.  Tyler has been a commercial investment agent for over 23 years, eight of which have been at Allsop and previously 17 years at Savills.  He is an investment sales specialist who, with his fellow investment partners, has grown the investment transactions business at Allsop over the last few years. Their success is evidenced by the fact that the National Investment team was the firm’s highest billing team in the last financial year.

Neil Mackilligin will retire next year after over 35 years in the real estate industry as an Auction Specialist and being at the helm of the No. 1 auctioneers in the country. He will however continue to work with the Commercial Auction team as a Consultant for the foreseeable future.

Neil commented: “Scott is a seasoned and well known character in our industry and has played a pivotal role in expanding Allsop’s offer outside of Auctions in the commercial investment and portfolio arena.  Scott, over the last couple of years, has been focussed on business generation and cross-selling across both the commercial and residential parts of the business and is ideally suited to assume an expanded leadership role.  He will be supported by Ed Dunningham, Head of Valuation who is to become the new Managing Partner for Commercial and Chris Berriman who remains as Managing Partner of the residential division .’’

Neil Mackilligin, who will become a consultant in 2016, has the satisfaction in his last year as Senior Partner overseeing a record year at Allsop with draft consolidated accounts for 2015 seeing turnover rising by 17% to £47million and profits for Equity partners rising 44% to £14.4 million.

Neil added: “It is great to go out on a high but the results are testament to the incredibly talented and tight knit group of partners and staff at Allsop who have made my time as Senior Partner so rewarding and enjoyable.

“It’s Scott’s turn now and I have no doubt the firm will continue to go from strength to strength under his leadership.”
