The executive management team (EMT) at chartered surveying firm Bruton Knowles has expanded.

The firm, which has an office in East Bridgford, near Nottingham, has grown its leadership team to a quartet. Paul Martin, having been recently promoted to IT director, joins the team of managing partner, James Bailey, HR director, Neil Young and finance director, Matt Baker.

Martin’s addition to the team follows Matt Baker stepping up to finance director, and joining the team earlier this year, after Bruton Knowles’ previous finance partner, Anne Williams retired in July, following 35 years with the business.

Martin said: “It’s an honour to join the EMT and help contributing towards the continued growth of Bruton Knowles. When I joined the firm, back in 2021, our task was moving forward, out of the pandemic, and helping our staff to be able to work flexibly from anywhere with the correct technology and equipment.

“We managed to achieve that and have gone from strength to strength ever since. I can’t wait to get to work with the James, Neil and Matt.”

Bailey added: “It’s exciting to welcome both Paul and Matt to the EMT, and we also recognise the departure of Anne, too. Anne’s contribution to the business has been an exceptional one, and we wish her the very best in her retirement plans.

“Our growth plans for the whole business this year are varied and operational on many levels across all our national teams. As a four, our aim is to continue this growth across all levels and all of our teams. We are always looking for the best avenues in which to continue to grow Bruton Knowles, and have several developments that we will be able to discuss further in the near future.”

The news follows recent office expansions for Bruton Knowles in both Wimborne, Dorset and Taunton in Somerset, which helps take their number of offices to twelve.
