George F. White eyes commercial property market 

October 3, 2016

Since George White started his company nearly 40 years ago, George F. White has evolved into a business that focuses on much more than the buying and selling of rural land.

Of course, its rural roots still hold importance but George F. White is now a fully serviced property, land and business consultancy that advises and informs clients on issues ranging from agricultural, residential and architectural matters to planning, commercial, minerals and waste, and energy development.

What’s more, it’s a young and very forward-thinking business that focuses on embedding key qualities including innovation, inspiration, honesty and commitment into all that the team does in the delivery of high quality, professional work.

Indeed, this is what appealed to Mike Young, who has recently joined the company as head of Commercial Property.

George F. White’s people-driven culture, which puts the personal and professional development of the team at the heart of everything it does, really struck a chord with Mike: “It’s such an exciting time to join the business, and one of the major aspects of George F.White that attracted me to the role was the enthusiasm of the team and their commitment. I really respect the ethos of the business that focuses on putting people at the centre of its approach. Ultimately, in my view, this is what holds the key to success,” he says.

In his new role, Mike brings with him a specialist range of commercial expertise in the management and development of private and public owned commercial property estates, including contract negotiation, planning and environmental assessment, strategic site appraisal and evaluation, estate management and compulsory purchase and compensation.

Mike’s niche talent, industry expertise and leadership qualities will enable George F. White to strengthen its foothold in the commercial property sector, a key growing service area for the business, expanding the George F. White client base UK wide.

George F. White works with a number of organisations in the commercial property space ranging from large local authorities to supermarket chains, such as Asda. By bringing Mike into the fold, the business is looking to accelerate its growth and further increase its presence in the sector.

Most recently, George F. White has been working with construction company Esh Group. On behalf of Esh, the commercial team is managing the lease of office space in Durham, based adjacent to its group headquarters in Bowburn. The building is an incubator building that’s ideal for small and start-up businesses in the region.

“We’re determined to grow our reputation and presence further in the commercial property market which goes hand-in-hand with adding to our team,” says Mike. “Currently, we’re recruiting across the business due to a recent growth spurt – something we hope to continue by developing and strengthening our status within the commercial property space.”
