Eddisons boosts North West valuation team with new director appointment

L-R: Eddisons’ Josh Northcott, Phil Deakin, Kate Smith

Fast-growing property consultancy Eddisons has appointed a new director within the firm’s valuation team in the North West.

Based in Eddisons’ Manchester offices, Josh Northcott has joined from Colliers, where he was an associate director of the firm’s international valuation and advisory services.

With 15 years’ commercial property industry experience, Josh specialises in land and property valuation across a range of sectors for secured lending, accounting and purchase or disposals.

Phil Deakin, regional director at Eddisons and head of the firm’s North West and West Midlands valuation team, said: “We are really pleased to welcome Josh on board, marking the appointment of yet another high-calibre team member, who brings with him extensive experience of working in an multi-national practice.

“Valuation is a growing area of Eddisons’ business, with more than 100 people in our team nationally and increasing demand from our clients for high quality valuation advice across the commercial and residential sectors. The continued expansion of Eddisons’ North West valuation team complements our growth in other regions and targeted acquisitions in areas such as the South West with Bristol-based Andrew Forbes Chartered Surveyors.”

Also in the 10-strong North West valuation team, graduate surveyor Kate Smith, who joined Eddisons in 2022, has passed her Assessment of Professional Competence exams to become a qualified member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

Phil Deakin added: “Kate has gone from strength to strength since she became a member of our valuation team and we are really proud of her achievement in becoming chartered and attaining registered valuer status.

“It is tremendous to see our younger colleagues, in particular, develop and progress in their careers with us. At Eddisons we are focused on nurturing talent and providing our clients with excellent advice across a broad range of sectors and geographies.”

Following a string of acquisitions, including that of SDL Property Auctions in December, Eddisons now employs around 500 people across a network of more than 30 UK offices.
