Founding Director relinquishes position on Mather Jamie Management Board

Mather Jamie has announced that one of our founding Directors Martin Ward, has relinquished his position on our management board.

Martin was one of the founders of the company in 1991, and has sold his remaining shares to fellow directors Rob Cole and Andrew Bamber over recent years. Since then, he has relinquished responsibility for business operations but continued managing an extensive and long standing client portfolio. He will remain a Director of the company and the Mather Jamie management board now comprises Robert Cole, Andrew Bamber, Alex Reid and Gary Owens.

Whilst Martin has stepped down from his managerial responsibilities, he will continue to focus on the completion of a number of deals that are in the pipeline for his long standing clients, including his work on the sustainable urban extension at New Lubbesthorpe on behalf of the Drummond Trust, and advising the Harpur Crewe Estate on short and medium term residential and commercial development south of Derby, including Infinity Park and Infinity Park Garden Village.

In February 2021, Mather Jamie announced four new senior promotions when Gary Owens and Amy Biddell were promoted to Director, Gary Kirk to Senior Associate Director and Hamish Byers to Associate Director, and Martin will also work alongside the management team to ensure a smooth succession of responsibilities.

Commenting, Martin said, “Whilst I may no longer be the first person in and the last person to leave the office, I will continue to work for clients and enjoy passing on my knowledge and expertise to the next generation. I plan to work hybridly and will flex my hours to suit the needs of clients and my other personal interests and hobbies. Rest assured, my retirement is still very far away as I am just far too busy and committed to my clients.”

Based in Loughborough, Leicestershire, Mather Jamie is one of the East Midland’s leading commercial and agricultural surveyors and valuers and was recently recognised as a 2022 CoStar Awards winner. It’s principal services include strategic land development advice, acting as rural estate managers and letting agents, and commercial property agents.
