Alison Beech, Managing Director of Valunation Chartered Surveyors, the valuation arm of the Spicerhaart group, is to retire from the business at the end of January 2018.
After ten years with the Spicerhaart Group, the last eight leading Valunation, Alison believes the time is right for a new challenge.
She will be replaced by Paul Lancaster as Managing Director on 1st February. Paul, left has worked for the Spicerhaart Group for 12 years, mostly in Valunation as Operations Director.
Alison says, “After 37 years of full time work I want to take the opportunity to do some travelling and to focus on my marathon running. It is certainly not my intention to leave the world of work altogether however, I am already looking at a number of advisory roles in the private and public sector.
“As MD of Valunation I have been very fortunate to have an exceptional leadership team and I know that I leave the business in the safest of hands.”John Phillips, National Operations Director says, “I thank Alison for her sterling work over the past ten years. She has led Valunation to be one of the most respected valuation service providers in the UK. Paul’s appointment ensures that this will continue and I welcome him to the role.”
