SHW’s senior partner Adam Godfrey said: “Martin’s contribution as managing partner has been immense over the last 10 years, and he leaves us in great shape and with a sound strategy for growth. I am looking forward to our continuing journey under Russell’s stewardship, drawing on his wealth of experience of our clients and markets. I am also looking forward to working with Russell and the management team as we continue to adapt to the ever-changing property landscape.”

Whilst the business environment is tough and demanding, there is a great deal of change ahead which will bring opportunities for growth. I am a firm believer that providing quality advice to our clients to ‘make their property work’ is key to our continued success, especially when delivered via motivated and engaged staff.”
