New appointment at Musson Liggins

Nottingham-based property consultants Musson Liggins has begun the process of “future proofing” the company with the appointment of a new equity director.

After years of working for both privately owned and corporate practices as an employee, Matthew Wade is hoping to kick-start a new era at the firm.

Originally from South Yorkshire, Wade first came to Nottingham in 1999 after graduating as a surveyor.

He first joined FHP in Nottingham as part of the office and industrial agency team, before being approached by Roger Davis at Geo Hallam & Sons, where he completed a further nine years of agency work.

Wade said: “During my time there I literally went from dealing with £150,000 properties, to £11m properties overnight.

“I learnt an awful lot in my nine years, and that experience is what provided the building blocks to this latest opportunity.”

In 2009, Wade was asked to join Robert Clarke Chartered Surveyors, but after a year the company was bought out by Chesterton Humberts, where he became head of the agency department and head of office.

Wade, who joined Musson Liggins this week, added: “I always wanted to be a part of a company where equity opportunities were possible. Graham [Parkinson, director at Musson Liggins] contacted me to arrange a chat, and the rest, as they say, is history.”

David Bladen, also equity director at Musson Liggins, said: “Taking on Matthew is part of future proofing the company. The idea is to bring strength and volume to the agency department, whilst adding to what we already do well.

“Over the past ten to fifteen years we have gained an excellent reputation for providing valuations to facilitate borrowing, predominantly for purchasing commercial and residential property. We hope that having Matthew on board will widen our opportunities with our existing clients as well as enabling us to attract new clients to the firm.”

Wade’s appointment coincides with the company’s visual re-brand, which includes new boards, new logos and a new website.
