NG Chartered Surveyors has restructured its management team

The firm has appointed current director Richard Sutton to the role of managing director.

Sutton was part of the team which performed a management buy-out of the company seven years ago. Since that time, the company says it has tripled its turnover.

Sutton’s fellow directors Sunny Landa, James McArthur and Richard Brown will continue in their roles as he is tasked with planning the strategic growth of the NG.

Brown is passing the managing director baton to Sutton. He said: “NG’s target in this next phase of evolution is really ambitious and I will be pleased to be supporting Richard Sutton every step of the way along with the rest of our board and team members.

“Having been the Managing Director myself for the past seven years, I know too well the level of pressure that will be on his shoulders, however he is the right man for the job and I am really excited about the future.”

Richard said: “What we’ve done over the last seven years is testament to us breaking the mould of the tired, traditional commercial property agency.”

“We’ve grown to become a diverse, inclusive agency always embracing new cultures, genders and ways of working.”

NG’s numbers have now grown to 12 with a new apprentice, Ellis Cullen, starting with the company next month.

Sutton added: “With the support of my fantastic colleagues, my goal now is to plot a course for the next seven years by placing NG at the very top of the game in Nottingham and the wider East Midlands.

“All too often when dealing with our larger counterparts, clients will feel like they’re being passed around a line of automatons – deal with NG and you get straight to a team that has decades of experience, but also knows when to cut the crap and get on with the deal!

“We don’t pretend we’re the biggest agency in the region – we don’t want to be – but it’s my aim now to make sure we’re the best across our all of our disciplines.

“I look forward to working with every member of our team to make this become reality.”
