Actons has promoted one of its Directors to Head of Property.
Caroline Pearson becomes Head of Property at Actons, following a ten year stint by Amanda Gordon, who continues as a Director in the Property team. The change is part of the firms’ succession planning ahead of the retirement of Amanda Gordon at the end of September.
Caroline qualified as a Solicitor in 2001 and joined Actons in 2007 and advises organisations on a range of commercial property transactions, from high-street premises to major development projects.
Caroline Pearson said: “I’m really pleased to be taking on the role as Head of Property, and look forward to working with the other members of the team, continuing to develop strong relationships with our clients and helping them to achieve their goals. There is some great talent in the team which has continued to grow throughout the pandemic with the arrival of Sumandeep Nahl and Neelam Khaleel.”
“Amanda will continue to play an instrumental part in the Property team ahead of her retirement and is definitely a hard act to follow. I’m very excited about the future.”
Amanda Gordon added: “It’s important for businesses to remain fresh and dynamic – and Caroline’s promotion is the natural next step for the team ahead of my retirement after the summer.”
“I know Caroline will do a great job of taking the team forward and helping our clients with their property transactions. My focus over the next six months is to ensure a smooth handover to Caroline and the other members of the team.”
Actons boasts a seven-strong property team, plus support staff, covering commercial property and development work for organisations and individuals across the region, as well as high-end residential conveyancing.
