Independent surveyor Keppie Massie has appointed Peter Eustance and Steve Lang to its valuation department.
Eustance was made redundant by CB Richard Ellis in September last year and will head up valuation at Keppie Massie, whose founders were both at Richard Ellis prior to setting up on their own in 1999. Eustance is based in the Liverpool head office and started work earlier this month.
Lang joined from Christopher Rodgers this month and is based in the firm's Manchester office.
Keppie Massie's valuation clients include banks, regeneration bodies, local authorities and property companies. The firm employs 36 staff.
Eustance said: " I saw this is an excellent opportunity to develop the valuation department of a renowned and established practice which has a great track record across the North West region."
Massie commented: "We are delighted to have Peter join us to develop our valuation team with the benefit of his experience and contacts in the north west market, and with Steve joining in Manchester it provides us with an excellent opportunity to grow this area of business."
The previous head valuer at Keppie Massie, Andrew Earl, left last year to pursue other interests.
