New face at Walker

LIVINGSTON-based housebuilder Walker Group has appointed Lynda Fleming as its new sales manager.

Ms Fleming has more than 17 years experience in the property industry, having previously served as associate director at DTZ Residential and sales manager at Stewart Milne. She began her career as an interior designer.

Ms Fleming said: "It is nice working for a Scottish based family-owned business as they really understand their customers and the areas in which they build.

"Most of the site managers have been with the company for many years and that shows in the quality of the homes they construct.

"There has been a huge improvement in the property market in recent months and it is an exciting time to work in residential sales."

Step up at FG Burnett

FG BURNETT has promoted Ross Sinclair to director after boosting the company's presence in the industrial sales, letting, asset management and development sectors in central Scotland.

Mr Sinclair, who is based in Glasgow, has been instrumental in extending the company's industrial stock level, which has increased from approximately 500,000 sq ft to 2 million sq ft since his arrival in 2011. This has followed the addition of several new key clients such as Buccleuch Property, Credential, Hansteen, M7, and MEPC.

FG Burnett managing director, Angus MacCuish, said: "Ross has done an exceptional job in winning a number of high profile instructions in the industrial sector and has built up a very good stock level, which has enhanced our position in the Glasgow commercial property market."

The company has also announced a series of appointments in its Aberdeen office, with building surveyor Stuart Fyvie moving up to associate, Sara Mathieson stepping up to senior surveyor, and Sylvia Clement taking on the role of Office Manager.
