GL Hearn announces today that two senior staff have been promoted to associate director level in its business rates team

Paul Ellis, who works in the Cheltenham office, has been promoted to associate director. He has considerable expertise in the rating field, having worked for over 30 years in the valuation office before moving into private practice. While in the valuation office Paul dealt with all classes of property, but mainly industrial, retail, health properties and car parks. At GL Hearn he is part of the team covering the Midlands region and South Wales. Paul also works closely with the landlord team across England and specialises in the Distribution/Fulfilment Centre sector covering the Midlands, the South of England and East Anglia. Victoria Williams, who joined the GL Hearn team in 2007 in Manchester, has also been appointed associate director.

Victoria previously worked in the corporate team for six years before moving into the business rates team. She specialises in both the retail warehouse sector of the property market, primarily across South Wales and the Midlands, and also the food store sector in North London. She has been involved in advising national clients in business rates matters for the 2005 and 2010 Rating Lists.

Andrew Hetherton, business rates director of GL Hearn, said: “The promotion of Paul and Victoria to associate director demonstrates their commitment to our business and our continuing support to develop successful people and reward them accordingly. This will also ensure that our business rates team is as strong as possible as we prepare for the forthcoming 2017 revaluation.” The promotions came into effect from Friday 1 January 2016.
