"To continue to build both brand awareness and credibility, we need the support of experienced business leaders like Andrew as part of the team. I am therefore delighted that Andrew has chosen to join us - he not only has vast experience in business and the surveying industry but has a positivity and passion which fits with our culture."

Originally established as Gooch and Burley Chartered Surveyors in April 1992, GB Home Surveys was acquired by experienced surveyor James Quinn in 2016 and is now a leading residential property survey provider.

Andrew Ord said: "GB Home Surveys has become a leading name within the surveying sector and is one that I am proud to be part of.

"After our initial discussions, it was clear that the team and I are united in the same ethos and approach towards customer experience, surveying quality and brand reputation, and I now look forward to working closely with James and the leadership team in driving GB Home Surveys forwards and exceeding targeted growth objectives."

Employing a team of 12 surveyors, GB Home Surveys is a RICS member, with all team members RICS registered valuers.
