CKD Galbraith boosts commercial team with two new appointments

The commercial division of independent property consultancy CKD Galbraith is investing in the future of its agency and building surveying teams with two new recruits.

Commercial agency surveyor Katie Gibson joins the agency and investment team from DTZ. A graduate of Heriot-Watt University in 2008 with a BSc in Estate Management, Katie qualified as a chartered surveyor in May 2013.

She has been involved in the sale of Robert Gordon University’s city centre campus and acted for high profile landlords such as Edinburgh Airport Limited, AWG and Thistle Property Group. Katie has also managed more than 100,000 sq ft of commercial property, making her well placed to offer an all-round occupier service.

Reuben Birch has been appointed graduate building surveyor, expanding Edinburgh’s commercial building surveying team to four full-time roles.

A graduate this year from Edinburgh Napier with a BSc in Building Surveying, Reuben will be involved in the full range of commercial building surveying services.

The new recruits are based at the firm’s headquarters in Edinburgh.

Martin Cassels, building surveying partner at CKD Galbraith, said: “Reuben hails from Buckie in Morayshire so has a good understanding of the breadth and diversity of the company. He will be shadowing the team for on-the-job training and support to build experience and work towards his APC.”

Pam Over, managing partner of CKD Galbraith said: “We’re delighted to appoint these two fresh and dynamic individuals as an investment in their future and ours as they help bolster our commercial offering across Scotland.”

6 Gavin Kerr

Former Scottish International kicks rugby into touch to tackle property

Retired international rugby player, Gavin Kerr, has left the scrum behind to take up a new position at one of Scotland’s leading independent property consultants CKD Galbraith.

The 36-year-old former pro is enjoying his new role as Building Surveyor in the firm’s Edinburgh office.

Gavin was capped 50 times for Scotland before retiring from a neck injury in 2010. During the latter stages of his career he studied a four-year degree through the College of Estate Management.

In his new role, Gavin provides the full range of professional Building Surveying advice, including refurbishment projects across residential and rural properties.

He recently passed his APC (Assessment of Professional Competence) – at the first attempt – and is now a qualified Chartered Surveyor and a member of RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors).

Gavin previously worked with Savills in Edinburgh having moved from Jones Lang LaSalle in Manchester back to his home in Melrose in the Borders.

Martin Cassels, Partner of CKD Galbraith’s Building Surveying division said: “With his background in commercial buildings of all types, both at Jones Lang LaSalle and Savills, and being from the Borders, Gavin is ideally placed to build on the knowledge and experience and will fit in well to our team. His rugby background also shows that he is a great team player and a valuable asset to our company.”

Gavin Kerr explained: “I bought and sold houses while playing rugby and have always had an interest in that side of things. I even bought my current house in Melrose through CKD Galbraith. Throughout my career I’ve been lucky enough to follow both of my passions – rugby and commercial property.

“I love surveying as it’s not an office bound job. I get to meet people and be out and about on site. As well as the building surveying and refurbishment projects I’m involved with I’ll be looking to expand upon my interest in the rural sector – especially as I was brought up in the countryside.

“As a team player I’m thrilled to be working for a company with such a strong network of people to support me as I gain more experience.”

Notes to Editor:

Gavin stared at CKD Galbraith at the end of April and passed his APC in May 2013. Before starting rugby at the age of 22, Gavin Kerr was a mechanical engineer. As a professional rugby player, he played for Leeds, Border Reivers, Edinburgh and Sale Sharks. He was brought up in Berwick upon Tweed.
