Targeting further expansion of its services, Kirkby Diamond’s incorporation of Brown & Lee gains them an impressive new client base and a highly experienced team of property professionals.
Brown & Lee’s Milton Keynes and Bedford operation, including Partners Andrew Dudley, Richard Last and Steve Magorrian and Associate Partner Mark Hannam, will join Kirkby Diamond’s commercial property team in Milton Keynes in the new year.
Steven Magorrian of Brown & Lee said: “The merger with Kirkby Diamond gives Brown & Lee the opportunity to work with people we have known for decades, to be part of their strong team and to add our experience and expertise to their dominant market share. Therefore, this move makes sense for both the firm and our clients.”
Last year, Kirkby Diamond also acquired property management and asset management specialist Granby Martin Surveyors. Following the move, the property management arm of Kirkby Diamond gained an extended client base of over 400 tenants, mainly located in London and the South East, operating in the industrial, offices and retail sectors.
Commenting on the move for Brown & Lee, Luke Tillison, Partner and Head of practice at Kirkby Diamond, had said the following.
“We know the guys at Brown & Lee in Milton Keynes exceptionally well, and I am delighted that we have been able to bring on board four highly experienced and well-respected property professionals to complement the Kirkby Diamond team.
“We are a highly ambitious company and we are determined to grow the business by adding significant experience and expertise across all the sectors in which we operate. The acquisition of Brown & Lee’s Milton Keynes and Bedford operations strengthens our position in the region and is a key ingredient in our plans for more growth in the future.”
