Commercial property consultancy Vail Williams LLP has expanded its Solent team with the appointment of associate Tom Bevan.
Bevan joined from Gerald Eve, where he worked for eight years at the London headquarters of the international real estate advisory business.
Bevan’s new role at Vail Williams includes commercial valuation work on behalf of lenders, including high street banks, and residential development appraisals.
A chartered surveyor and registered valuer with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, he is now also working in the housing association sector, conducting valuations and providing strategic advice.
Previous experience includes valuation and property taxation in the minerals and waste sectors, advising clients such as Tarmac, Aggregate Industries and Biffa.
Working out of Vail Williams’ Southampton office at Savannah House, Ocean Village, Bevan reports directly to Carl Walker, a Vail Williams partner who specialises in commercial property valuation.
