Land Factor manages estates throughout the north of England and southern Scotland and Matthew has principally been involved with the management of the agricultural and commercial activity on the privately-owned Blagdon and Belsay Estates.

Commenting on the promotion, one of the founding Directors of the business Tom Warde-Aldam said “We are very pleased to welcome Matthew to the Board as a Director.  We have recognised his ability from the time he joined Land Factor and we are confident that he will bring his expertise and strategic awareness to his new role as a Director.

“This is an exciting time for the business, having moved to our new offices in Hexham. This has enabled us to bring most of our staff together under one roof and to provide an even better service to our clients as we continue to grow”

Matthew, 34, who is a registered valuer, spent six years as an assistant land agent and then as an associate at a national land agency firm before joining Land Factor in 2014 as an Associate.
