Henry’s on the Up at NG
27th November 2014
One of the fastest-rising stars of the East Midlands commercial property scene is set to take the next stage in his career with NG Chartered Surveyors.
Henry Henson, who joined NG in 2012, will step up to Associate Director at just 25 on 1st January 2015. A meteoric rise has seen Henry rise through the ranks from graduate surveyor to Associate Director during some of the toughest times the commercial property market has ever seen.
Henry graduated from Nottingham Trent University in 2011 having gained a BSc (Hons) degree in Property Investment and Finance before going on to work at a small surveying firm in Milton Keynes and Northampton specialising in the retail and leisure sector. He moved back to Nottingham in 2012 to start working for NG and completed his Assessment of Professional Competence in 2014, which allowed him to become a member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
Henry then took up the role of General Practice Surveyor working in the close-knit agency department at NG, working with a host of wealthy individuals, pension funds and large national companies.
Speaking about his promotion, Henry said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be promoted to Associate Director at such a well-respected company as NG. I’ve only ever worked within a recession and hopefully this means that by working hard in a poor market and managing to be successful, it will prepare me well now that the market is slowly picking back up.
“I can’t praise my colleagues highly enough for helping me to this promotion. NG is a company that nurtures and raises its own talent and I’d like to specifically thank Sunny Landa, whose footsteps I have followed in, and who has been a tremendous help during my career so far at NG.”
Richard Brown, Managing Director at NG, added: “To become Associate Director at just 25 shows just how driven and committed Henry is. He has successfully split his time between the Agency and Professional Department, adding a dynamic and proactive approach to the team.
“We’re incredibly lucky to have him on board at NG and we’re sure he’ll go from strength to strength in his new role, helping landlords, tenants and investors across the East Midlands.”
Alongside his role at NG, Henry is a committee member for RICS Matrics East Midlands Region, helping to encourage networking and support for the surveying profession in the region. He also recently assisted on the RICS stand at the Nottingham Trent University careers fair to offer support and advice to both undergraduates and post graduates, studying RICS accredited courses.
Henry has also been appointed a committee member for the Nottingham Professional Services – a new organisation that is looking to promote the professional services sector in Nottingham. He will lead an effort to promote young talent in the sector into 2015.
