Changing of the Guard at Graham + Sibbald
Graham + Sibbald, the independent Scottish chartered surveyor and property specialist, has recently voted on a changing on the guard at partner level following the retirement of longstanding Senior Partner, Iain Leighton. Current Managing Partner moves up to the Senior Partner role vacated by Leighton, while Calum Campbell, formerly Partner in charge of the Glasgow office, moves up to the Managing Partner position.
Graham + Sibbald is on track for a record year in 2018, boosted by ongoing activity relating to the new business rates system in Scotland. The firm has made a number of senior lateral hires in Q1 of 2018 and recently relocated its Edinburgh office to 40 Torphichen Street, one of the city’s modern office developments in the regenerated Haymarket area of the capital. In 2017, the firm made a similar move into a new city centre premises in Glasgow.
Overall, Graham + Sibbald now has over 200 employees and 21 partners working across its 15 UK offices which are largely based in Scotland supported by a base in London.
Les McAndrew, Senior Partner, Graham + sibbald, said: “I speak for all of the firm when I say that it has been a great pleasure and learning curve to work alongside Iain and we wish him all the best in his retirement. Today’s appointments are about the leadership team for the next phase of our growth and in Calum Campbell we have an exceptional leader to help drive our strategy in the years ahead.”
Calum Campbell, Managing Partner, Graham + Sibbald, said: “It’s an exciting time for our team and the business and, by continuing to put our clients at the centre of everything we do, we’re in confident mood about the road ahead for Graham + Sibbald on the property scene.”
