A leading West Midlands property consultancy, Burley Browne, is targeting expansion of its property management portfolio after appointing an experienced surveyor to lead the division.
Joining the Sutton-Coldfield based company from chartered surveyors Bruton Knowles; new recruit, Faryal Sheikh, will become the firms’ Senior Surveyor, working alongside commercial property landlords across the industrial, retail and office sectors.
Commenting on her appointment, Faryal (pictured right) said: “It’s really exciting to be joining Burley Browne at the start of a great new era. I’ve known the company for many years, and it has an excellent reputation as a leading regional agent.
“In my new role, I’m looking forward to driving the property management division forward and growing our portfolio of properties significantly. Offering added value to landlords is a key element in our growth and development strategy.
“We are targeting new, great quality instructions with good landlords and tenants, while continuing to provide outstanding support for the clients we already act for.”
Hailing from Oldbury, Birmingham, Faryal gained a degree in property and construction at Birmingham City University, before joining Connells in 2011.
After leaving Connells Faryal first joined Maguire Jackson as a Senior Property Consultant, before moving onto CBRE for four years where she served as an Estate and Asset-Manager Surveyor, later joining Bruton Knowles.
Faryal begins life at Burley Browne as the firm is set to enter a new era following the recent stake acquisition by equity partners David Hemming and James Merrick.
Welcoming her to the company and commenting on what the hire means for the business, James Merrick said: “Faryal is a breath of fresh air and I am sure she is going to be a huge success in her new role. Expanding our property management portfolio across the region, and further afield is a major focus for us. We will be providing landlords with added value and exceptional service as we grow the team, led by Faryal.”
