Garness Jones adds experienced surveyor to team

Hull chartered surveyors, Garness Jones, have added an experienced property professional as Commercial management Surveyor putting the firm in good stead for the coming months.

Simon Preston moved into commercial property in 2004 with Scott’s Property, where he gained experience of retail agency and valuation work and then went into property management.

He became chartered in 2008 and in 2012 joined NPS Group as an estate surveyor, managing Hull City Council’s vast property portfolio.

At Garness Jones, his duties will include property management work and valuations covering industrial, retail and offices.

“I decided early in my career that I wanted to gain valuable experience working in both the public and private sectors,” said Mr Preston.

“Having achieved that I found I prefer the private sector, with its greater variety of properties and clients, and the challenges which come with that.

“As someone who has been in Hull for about 18 years now I have been aware of Garness Jones throughout my career and I recognise them as one of the market leaders in the region.”

MD Dave Garness added: “The property landscape in the Hull and Humber region is changing all the time as a result of the influx of high value and high-profile investments, and our business is evolving along with that.

“Simon’s background of a rich variety of property experience in residential and commercial, public and private sectors is a very good fit with the work that we are doing and the partnerships that we are developing.

“He is an excellent addition to our team and we are delighted to have him on board as we plan our future expansion.”
