An Ashby property consultancy has announced the re-election of its managing partner as well as a senior appointment.

Fisher German, which has two offices in the town including its headquarters, has confirmed the re-election of Andrew Bridge as managing partner who will lead the business for a further three-year term from April 1, 2022.

The firm has also invited associate director Helena Tibbitts, who is based in Ashby, to join the partnership from October 1 of this year.

Bridge became managing partner in April 2019 and will complete his first three-year term in March 2022. He stood uncontested for a second term, garnering overwhelming support from the wider partnership.

He said: “When I became managing partner in 2019, working closely with the wider partnership, I quickly began implementing our big agenda including a new strategic direction and supporting vision and values.

“Negotiating our way through the pandemic has been challenging but with the dedication and commitment shown by our colleagues, we have stuck to our ambitious plans and I look forward to the firm seeing these benefits during my second term in office.”

Tibbitts will join the partnership following a recommendation from the Senior Partner Group overseeing the firm’s Pathway to Partnership scheme, which aims to prepare associate directors to thrive as partners and business leaders.

She joined Fisher German in 2006 and leads the Rural and Residential Valuation team. She specialises in valuations for a range of purposes including lending, taxation and matrimonial, in addition to the valuation of residential, agricultural and development property.

Tibbitts said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the partnership. The firm has experienced a huge amount of growth since I joined in 2006 and I am excited to play my part in the future of the business.”

Fisher German senior partner Tim Shuldham, who will be stepping down from the role after retiring from the partnership earlier this year, congratulated Tibbitts on being appointed to the Partnership.

He said: “Helena has demonstrated the leadership qualities, professionalism and technical experience expected of those progressing into the Partnership and I congratulate her on this excellent achievement.

“It has been a privilege to represent the partnership as senior partner and I have particularly enjoyed seeing so many talented individuals across Fisher German being promoted during my time in the role.”
