Property consultancy makes raft of promotions across East Midlands offices

A property consultancy has made a raft of promotions across its offices in the East Midlands after a successful six months.

Fisher German has promoted 15 members of staff at its offices in Ashby, Market Harborough and Newark, alongside a key promotion at the top of the company.

Sarah DeRenzy-Tomson, based at Fisher German’s head office in Ashby, has been named as Fisher German’s new Head of Planning.

She has been a Chartered Planner for more than 20 years and has been at the firm for 10 years. She takes over from Liberty Stones, who has become the firm’s new Divisional Managing Partner for its Advisory Services division.

Further promotions at Ashby include Matthew Turner and Will Bostock, who both become associate partners, Matthew Handford and James Beverley, who both become senior associates, Marc Styrdom, who becomes an associate, Beth Simpson and Abi Hicklin, who both become senior surveyors, and Amber-Rose Heys who is now a department coordinator.

Deborah Smith becomes head of bid management, Chloe Sharratt becomes a senior bid coordinator, Harman Basra becomes senior learning & development manager, and Brian Shaw becomes system administrator.

In Market Harborough, Joy Brankin-Frisby has been promoted to associate partner and Frances Houseman is now a senior surveyor, while Eleanor Harding in Newark becomes an associate.

The promotions at Fisher German are among 46 made across its 26 offices.

Sarah said: “I’m extremely pleased to be taking on the role of Head of Planning at Fisher German and leading such a motivated and proactive department.

“We have a very diverse client base and as such, have three separate delivery teams within our planning department covering general practice planning, strategic planning which includes residential and commercial, infrastructure, and energy planning.

“This enables each team to focus on their technical specialisms and keep up to date with any developments in legislation to deliver robust planning strategies for our clients.

“Since joining Fisher German 10 years ago the planning department has changed considerably and has not only grown both in terms of numbers, but also the scale and complexity of the projects we’re delivering.

“We are embedded with some really ambitious, forward-thinking clients and are continuously expanding into new geographical areas and markets.

“It’s an exciting time for planning with the introduction of biodiversity net gain, significant investment in infrastructure and new technologies emerging in the energy market, as well as the implications associated with a potential change in government coming forward which could result in changes in priorities.

“We are at the forefront of these changes, interpreting them and ultimately helping to make a complex process as easy as possible for our clients to traverse.

“We have three fantastic planning teams who all want to have a real impact on the landscape that we all live and work in, and we’re continuing to expand the department as we look to grow further.”

The promotions were made after Fisher German introduced its ‘Grow’ career progression framework, which gives its colleagues clear guidance on what is needed to progress, and the responsibilities needed at each level of the business.

Richard Benson, Senior Partner at Fisher German, added: “Promotions are an opportunity to reflect and recognise the fantastic achievements of our people and to celebrate their progression in the business.

“The ‘Grow’ programme was launched as way of enabling colleagues to better understand how they can progress their careers here, and all 46 promotions as a result of the programme are thoroughly deserved.”
