The Manchester-based property consultancy has announced that investment agent Dan Crossley has been made a full equity partner.
Crossley will be the fourth equity partner at the firm alongside Gareth Buckley, Mark Williams and Mike Rooney.
Crossley was one of the first people to join WHR when it was founded 10 years ago.
Buckley, Williams and Rooney established WHR in 2004. Fellow founder Mike Hawkins left the business last year to join Colliers International. Non-equity partners in the business are Simon Hampson, Graham Aitkenhead, John Edwards, and Gary Chapman.
Crossley's promotion was announced at an event on Thursday evening to celebrate the practice's 10th anniversary.
WHR currently employs 28 people.
Buckley said: "We are pleased that Dan accepted the invitation to become a full equity partner as he has been with the company since its inception and has worked hard over the years to help make this company the success that it is."
Crossley said: "The property market is entering an exciting new cycle. WHR has proven that it is one of the leading property consultancies in the country having fared through the recent difficult economic period and continued to grow. Now is the time to look to the next 10 years and I am proud to be able to be part of a team that will continue to have a strong influence over the future of the North West property scene."
