Commenting John Woodman, Senior Partner at Hollis, said: “At Hollis, our business isn’t surveying: it’s people. We work hard to instill a culture of excellence, opportunity, and development. I have always subscribed to the notion that so long as we take care of our people, they will take care of our clients, and the growth that the business has achieved over the past year supports this ideology.

“Well done and congratulations to those promoted, and to their mentors – I am honoured to lead an organisation with such exceptional talent.”
