Bruton Knowles has appointed a key industry figure to head a new Utility Team.
Chris Gaskell was Head of Estates and Wayleaves at Electricity North West for 20 years. He took early retirement in January but was persuaded to return to the sector by James Bailey, Managing Partner at Bruton Knowles. “I was determined not to return unless the role and the business was just right, offered me new challenges and an opportunity to utilise my knowledge in the sector. Bruton Knowles is one of the few firms with the ability to offer this”.
James added, “The utility sector is a fast growing business area for Bruton Knowles, representing a large percentage of business income. We are now recruiting with the intention of building a significant team around Chris. This will also impact on our annual graduate recruitment programme. Candidate intake will be influenced by the need to attract and build talent within the business.”
