Planning and development consultancy Montagu Evans has appointed Chris Morrow as a partner within its Rating team. He will specialise in providing advice to Montagu Evans’ occupier clients, with a particular focus on Central London.
Chris joins from Matthews & Goodman, where he was a partner and head of Rating. Prior to this, he worked as a rating surveyor at Newton Perkins and SMPA. He is a Rating Surveyors’ Association member and has also been awarded the RICS Rating Diploma.
Chris’s appointment follows on from two recent hires for Montagu Evans’ Rating team, Kathleen Marsland in the Landlord team in London and Fionn Hunter in Glasgow.
Josh Myerson, Head of Rating at Montagu Evans, commented: “We continue to bolster our team, making key strategic hires across the UK to ensure we are in the best possible position to continue to provide expert advice to our clients in advance of the 2023 revaluation. In Chris, we have a senior rating surveyor with extensive occupier experience, especially in London, who has a high level of technical expertise. We are delighted to welcome him to the team.”
Chris Morrow, Partner at Montagu Evans, added: “Montagu Evans’ ethos for putting the client at the centre of everything it does is something I strongly believe in. This, alongside its focus on collaborative working and the team’s impressive reputation, made joining the firm a very attractive proposition. With significant changes to the business rates system on the horizon, I am looking forward to working alongside my new colleagues to navigate these issues and bring the greatest benefits to our clients.”
