He said: “Stormclad is a great Nottingham success story and it’s a fantastic opportunity for me to join such a professional firm, and use my specialist experience to manage the day-to day operations of the business as well as grow its commercial market.

“Stormclad is a well-respected market leader on an upwards trajectory and it’s an exciting time for the whole team.”

Worrall, a specialist in the leisure, healthcare medical and education sectors, has joined Eddisons Taylors from the Birmingham office of property consultant Vail Williams, having previously worked for Pinders, part of the Christie Group.

He said: “I have had a national remit although over recent years focused on the Midlands – specifically the Birmingham market – and have built up a substantial body of contacts. My background fits well with Eddisons Taylors’ ambitions for growth in the region, and their already extensive client base. My strengths cover a wide range of trading asset valuations, from hotels, pubs, caravan parks and petrol filling stations to doctors’ practices, children’s day nurseries, pharmacies and dental practices.”
