Fast-expanding property specialist Bradley Hall has made a raft of key appointments to kick-start its growth plans for 2017.

Catherine Affleck has re-joined the established chartered surveyor and estate agent as associate director after working as a senior surveyor at Lambert Smith Hampton and Durham County Council. Previously she spent nine years at Bradley Hall, first as a chartered surveyor before being promoted to associate director. Catherine, 31, of Consett, will be based in Bradley Hall’s Newcastle head office.

The company has also hired two property executives to beef up its Gosforth and Morpeth teams. Simra Kaleem will oversee residential sales from the firm’s Morpeth base while Liam Henderson, a former professional footballer at Watford FC, will ply his new trade from the Gosforth office.

Meanwhile Cheryl More has been appointed as PA to Bradley Hall’s managing director Neil Hart. The 32-year-old from South Shields will handle a range of duties including booking appointments, filing, invoicing and liaising with clients.

The appointments are part of a strategic drive by Bradley Hall to strengthen its position as the leading independent general practice chartered surveying firm in the region.

Neil Hart said: “We’re thrilled to have hired these talented staff as we look to pursue an aggressive growth strategy in 2017. We’ve already moved into larger headquarters and opened new offices around the region; now we’re looking to increase headcount to service a significantly increased workload.

“Over the last 12-18 months we’ve been handling bigger instructions on commercial and residential projects. That trend looks set to continue as investors’ confidence in the property market increases.”
