Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

An Ashby surveyor’s exemplary training of fellow professionals over the last decade has seen him nominated for a prestigious industry award.

Seb Kinglsey, of leading property consultancy Fisher German, has been shortlisted to win the Mentor of the Year award at the RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) Young Surveyor of the Year Awards 2019.

Seb, a Partner at the firm’s Ashby office, was nominated thanks to his highly effective training of young surveyors for more than 10 years, with 95 per cent of his trainees passing their APC professional qualification first time.

Matthew Trewartha, Partner at Fisher German and leading on RICS awards nominations, said:

“We’re delighted with what Seb has achieved during his career with Fisher German. He is a credit to the firm and to his profession, and we wish him the best of luck in the awards.”

Seb’s colleagues Guy Hemus, Seb Kingsley and Ruth Ofield have also been shortlisted in various categories in the awards, which recognise and celebrate the most inspirational young surveying professionals and mentors in the UK.

The four will head to the awards ceremony in London on Thursday, November 28 and will hope to continue Fisher German’s recent success in the awards in previous years.

Jack, an Associate Director at Fisher German’s Doncaster office, has been nominated in the Land (Rural and Urban) category thanks to his work in making 4km of dangerous gas mains safe again, and helping his clients run successful farm machinery auctions.

Guy, a Partner at the firm’s Stafford office, is up for the Valuation award after successfully co-ordinating the valuation of 1,474 properties for a client in just 12 weeks.

And Ruth, a Partner in the firm’s Banbury office, has been shortlisted for the Asset and Facilities Management category for her excellent track record in delivering complex projects for her clients, which has seen her rapidly progress through the firm.

This year’s nominations continue Fisher German’s excellent track record of getting its young surveyors shortlisted at the awards.

Since 2015, 12 young surveyors from the firm have been nominated, with three going onto win in their categories.

Matthew added:

“Our nominees this year have been nominated in their categories for a variety of different reasons, but they are all outstanding in their respective fields and fully deserve to be shortlisted.

“After four years of strong showing in these awards, including three category winners over the past three years, it makes us really proud that we still have an enormous pool of young talent that keep coming to the fore and being recognised as the best in the industry.”
