Rural Newsletter - February 2011

    Savills Rural Department in Glasgow, serving the central belt and the west of Scotland, has been further strengthened with the addition of Associate Director, Kenny Munn.

    Hugo Struthers, Head of Savills Rural Department in Glasgow said: "This latest appointment is due to the team’s success in winning new rural business, and offering strategic advice to our increasingly entrepreneurial clients.

    "Alongside traditional farming, many are now involved in renewable energy projects, minerals and various tourism and leisure activities. Whether they have 50 or 50,000 acres, there are growing opportunities for Scottish rural clients to make optimum use of their property assets."

    Kenny, who previously spent five years with Savills in Perth, said: "It is an exciting time in land management and I am relishing the opportunity to be working on my home patch once again".

    Specialising in portfolio management, rural business diversification and strategy planning, Kenny also works closely with Savills Research team in London to produce the Scottish Estate Benchmarking Survey Report.  This analyses the performance of the property assets of each participating estate, against a benchmark.  Around 200 estates, representing one million acres of rural property across the UK, now participate in the Savills survey. Each receives a detailed report giving participants the information they need to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of their business and to identify opportunities for growth.

    Glasgow’s Rural Department opened for business in October 2008 and now consults on Scottish rural estates from Sky in the North and Stranraer in the South.  The team work with Savills specialists in planning, development, leisure, renewables, building consultancy and estate agency and the Glasgow firm is now the largest in-house rural property firm in the West, covering central Scotland, the Borders, Argyll and Ayrshire.
