Commercial property consultants, Hartnell Taylor Cook LLP has appointed Ian Lambert Partner to lead their Bristol office.
Ian is well qualified for the role as he joined Hartnell Taylor Cook LLP in 1991 as a graduate trainee after obtaining a degree in Valuation and Estate Management at what is now known as the University of West of England. He learned his business with the practice, initially working in the Property Management department before moving to the Investment and Auction department after passing his APC. Ian worked closely with the then Senior Partner, St John Hartnell, learning how to sell by property by auction before moving into general investment agency.
Ian has progressed through the ranks and became partner in charge of the investment agency team in 2007 and has continued to be based in Bristol.
Ian is a well-known character in the south west property market and has a great depth of knowledge having been involved in a number of major investment deals in the region many of which are in the Bristol office market.
Ian commented on his new appointment: “I am delighted to be appointed in charge of the Bristol office, we have a fantastic team who all work hard and provide a high quality service for our clients yet also enjoy the workplace. It is a real pleasure having started with HTC many years ago to have seen how the business has progressed and be part of this growth. HTC has grown substantially since I joined and we now offer many more areas of specialism with the fastest growth being in our facilities management and building consultancy teams and I look forward to announcing further new developments over the next few months.
“The next few years will be challenging with Brexit and as the full impact of the digital age impacts on the workplace and the commercial property market but I feel confident we at HTC are well placed to react and continue to provide a quality service, especially as we approach our centenary in 2022.”
Managing Partner, Stuart Howell said: “It’s great to know the Bristol office is in safe hands and I am sure it will continue to flourish and prosper under Ian’s watchful eye.
