Glenny has strengthened its team with a number of senior promotions and a new appointment in its Stratford office. Ben Owen, William Mitchell, Chris Welch and Graham Stilwell have all stepped up to the role of Associate, while Ibrahim Beg has joined Glenny as a Senior Surveyor. Ben and William, who both work in Glenny’s Valuation & Lease Advisory team, currently work on a range of landlord and tenant instructions, acting for both landlords and tenants and specialising in the industrial, office and retail markets. Both are registered valuers, responsible for carrying out residential and commercial, and development appraisals for leading bank panels, private investors, national occupiers, corporate and public-sector bodies. Natwest, Handelsbanken, Standard Bank, the London Boroughs of Newham and Enfield, Grafton Group PLC, City of London Corporation, Heritable Development Finance and Orchard Street Investment Management are among their current client portfolio. In their new roles as Associates, Ben will be responsible for expanding Glenny’s presence within the South London and Kent region, while Will is charged with expanding the firm’s presence in the North London and Hertfordshire region. This will be done through client retention and business development. Working in Glenny’s Asset & Property Management team, Chris and Graham work on a range of mixed portfolios, advising public-sector clients as well as well private and corporate investors, pension funds, housing associations and trusts. Understanding the importance of income generation and asset enhancement, Chris and Graham work to identify opportunities and to create value across every portfolio. Their notable clients include the London Borough of Enfield, Marylebone Asset Management and the Peabody Trust. Chris and Graham will be responsible for growing their surveying teams and assisting with business generation in their new roles as Associates. Ibrahim, now Senior Surveyor in the Valuation team, specialises in commercial and residential valuations in East London and Essex. He has experience working in the public sector for Basildon Borough Council, where he was responsible for its commercial portfolio and has also acted on behalf of major financial institutions and private individuals in private practice. John Bell, Managing Partner at Glenny, said: “Glenny is committed to developing and investing in the professional skills of its team; we continuously strive to provide clients with tailored advice delivered by experienced industry experts. Ben, William, Chris and Graham are an embodiment of this strong company ethos and their promotions are well-deserved recognition of their hard work and ongoing contribution. I look forward to seeing them continue to develop in their new Associate positions. "In addition, we are also delighted to welcome another new member to the Glenny team. Ibrahim’s wide range of client experience will be extremely valuable, and we’re looking forward to having him on board." Ben, William, Chris Graham and Ibrahim are all based in Glenny’s central hub, located in Stratford, London.
