Susan Cameron and David Lindsay based in the firm’s Edinburgh office, Gregor Harvie and Tim Jacobsen in Glasgow and Michael Lorimer in Aberdeen were all made Partner with David Moore, Edinburgh, and Rachel Naylor, Aberdeen, becoming Associate.

The promotions are part of the firm’s continuing plan for growth. At the close of 2017 niche Scottish planning consultancy practice Muir Smith Evans merged with Ryden to create a market-leading planning and consultancy team. The firm also opened a third English office in Manchester last summer.

Today’s announcement brings the total number of new Partners appointed in the past year to 10. Ryden now has 43 Partners across its six offices in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, London and Manchester.  Ryden has also restructured management within its Glasgow office with Ewan Cameron stepping down as Regional Managing Partner to be succeeded by Derek Tillery, who also heads the firms Property Management division.

Bill Duguid, Ryden Managing Partner, said: “These promotions have come from both transactional and non-transactional teams, and are part of our succession planning and investment in Ryden’s future. Many of these individuals have been with us for over a decade, some starting at junior levels. We pride ourselves on offering our people a good career path and recognising the dedication they put into offering clients outstanding service levels.

It also follows what initial (pre audit) year end figures would suggest has been a very good one for the business with turnover up by around 15% overall and over 25% in England, a remarkable achievement given the uncertainties prevailing in many of the markets we operate within and ahead of our own business plan targets.”
