New RICS valuer at Fenn Wright Commercial in Ipswich
Gavin Keats BSc (Hons) MRICS has recently joined the commercial property team in Ipswich.
Gavin, a RICS Registered Valuer, was born and raised in Ipswich, but left in the late 1990s to study at Oxford Brookes University. He later joined Matthews & Goodman in the City of London where he qualified as a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and in 2003 joined Cushman & Wakefield working in their West End valuation team for 10 years. Gavin moved back home to Ipswich last year and will be providing valuation, consultancy and professional services.
Alistair Mitchell, Ipswich Commercial Partner said that he is delighted Gavin has joined the Ipswich office. He added: “Gavin is a very experienced valuer and has dealt with some significant national valuation instructions in the past for clients such as Jaguar Land Rover, Ford Motor Company, Tesco, Helical Bar as well as all the major banks”.
