Promotions recognise contribution and commitment

Balfours has promoted two of its up-and-coming land agents, Jack Cooper and Olivia Manning based at Shrewsbury and Hereford respectively: Both promoted from Associate to Associate Partner.

Jack joined the firm in 2016, after graduating from the Royal Agricultural University Cirencester. As part of his professional development with Balfours he qualified as a chartered surveyor and Fellow of the CAAV in 2019.

Delighted with the promotion he reflects: “My work has been hugely varied to match clients’ needs and objectives, not only in Shropshire, but Wales, Staffordshire and Lincolnshire too. Our clients increasingly require practical advice on the management of their natural assets, particularly around farming enterprises, or wider environmental objectives. It has been incredibly satisfying to assist clients realise their aims in this increasingly important area for rural estates.”

Olivia, who was fully qualified when she joined Balfours from the Cotswolds, highlights building knowledge of Estates and relationships with clients as key to success and achievements.  Also, the variety of work and the responsibility that has come with submitting complex applications to Natural England and other relevant bodies on behalf of clients.

Business manager, Craig Varley reflects that the promotions are recognition of their professional growth, contribution to the business and expanding responsibility. “Of course, as agents in addition to the work above there are the traditional expertise, such as tenancy matters, asset management, developments, and diversifications. Jack and Olivia are well placed to continue helping our clients assess the opportunities available to them and put in place the necessary plans for the future of their Estates,” Craig adds.
