Professional Summary

I am a Director within the UK Hotels Valuation Team.

As a specialist Hotel Valuer, I undertake valuations of hotel assets and investments in the Midlands and throughout the UK and Europe for a wide range of clients, predominantly for loan security purposes.

I qualified as a Chartered Surveyor in 2007 whilst working for BNP Paribas Real Estate in London. I then worked in the Hotels & Leisure team at Avison Young, firstly in Manchester and then in Birmingham, before joining Colliers International in 2014.

Since qualifying as a Chartered Surveyor, I have specialised in the Hotels sector, working in both valuation and agency roles, and have an in depth knowledge of this specialist area.



I am part of a wholly dedicated hotel valuations team who every year value over 400 UK hotels with a combined value of more than £6bn.
