Professional Summary

I am a Director in the UK Hotels department based in London and Manchester.  As Head of the Hotels Valuation team I regularly present to property professionals and operators on matters affecting the hotel industry and provide valuation and other advice for a variety of purposes. 


I head up the UK Hotels Valuation  team and since joining Colliers International in April 2004 have valued and advised on several billions of pounds worth of hotel stock, mostly in the UK and Ireland though occasionally overseas.

I also have extensive experience in rating, landlord and tenant and expert witness work, the latter including the preparation of evidence for court proceedings including the Valuation Tribunal, Lands Tribunal, County Court and the High Court.  In addition I have provided advice on the valuation and feasibility of hotel sites and developments as well as hotel investments that are subject to lease or management agreements.


I started my career at the Valuation Office in Stoke on Trent where I first became involved in valuing hotels for rating, rental and capital taxation purposes.  After ten years at the Valuation Office, I joined the Christie Group where I developed my experience across all hospitality sectors, cementing relationships with many of the main high street banks and carrying out hotel valuations throughout the UK.
