Richard Moreton has joined the Manchester office of the firm as senior associate, following a 14-year spell with GVA.
In his role at Matthews & Goodman, Moreton will provide valuation advice across all asset classes for loan security, accounting and viability purposes.
He said: “Having worked for a large firm, I felt the time was right to move to a specialist operation which offers me the opportunity to make a greater impact on the firm and use the knowledge and experience I have amassed over the last 14 years to help the business grow and achieve its aspirations.
“Matthews & Goodman is a smart operation where the owners play an active role in the business and the company is doing a lot under the radar in the North West’s active property market, so the opportunity really appealed to me.”
Partner Graham Cooke added: “I know that Richard will make a profound difference to our team of valuations specialists because of the depth of his professional knowledge and expertise, as well as his commercial understanding.
“Richard will work closely with the younger members of the team to help nurture them and build up a portfolio of work.”
