DM Hall, one of Scotland’s largest independent firms of chartered surveyors, has appointed John Kempsell as senior surveyor in its Dumfries office.
Born and bred in Dumfries, John, 52, entered the property sector on leaving school. Four years later, he did an ONC in Construction. An HNC followed, with surveying experience with Dumfries & Galloway Council Assessors Department. In 2004 he transferred to Building Control as a Building Inspector.
John graduated from Glasgow Caledonian University with a BSc in Building Control and he joined South Lanarkshire Council as a Building Standards Surveyor.
He re-trained as a Valuation Surveyor and he became a member of the RICS in 2012.
He said: “It’s early days but I’m enjoying being part of the team, serving the clients in our region. My focus is on the western side of Dumfries & Galloway, I am responsible for residential surveys, including home reports, valuations and energy performance certificates”.
Eric Curran, Managing Partner, said, “John’s arrival adds further strength to our offering to clients in south west Scotland.
“His extensive experience in our sector is a huge asset both for clients and colleagues and we are delighted that he has chosen to spend the next stage of his career at DM Hall.”
