INSIGHT: Pearson Trebles its Property Team After Year of Sustained Growth

  • Posted on

Pearson has trebled the size of its property team following a year of sustained growth.

On the back of a 50 per cent growth in revenue last year, our property team has grown from 3 to 9 after recruiting additional support and promotions from within the existing team.

Alison Brown, from Heywood, joins Pearson as a commercial property assistant and has nearly a decade of experience working in both commercial and residential conveyancing.

Currently in the process of completing a Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) Qualification, Alison will support the wider property team to service and grow its existing client base.

Meanwhile, recent recruit, Sarah Major, has also graduated from her CILEx course to become a Chartered Legal Executive and is completing the final stage to become a fellow. She will be working on all types of conveyancing matters from Transfer of Equity, re-mortgages, sales, purchases, right to buy and new build.

The CILEx Law School provides flexible training for a wide range of professional and vocational legal qualifications, which was crucial for Sarah as she juggled work, study and becoming a mum.

Michael Pitt, partner and head of commercial property at Pearson, commented: “The past twelve months have been extremely fruitful for the property team, and one of the most successful years in the firm’s history.

“We’ve increased our portfolio of clients and expanded our geographical reach, proving that businesses don’t need to opt for a large city firm to handle their property transactions.

“The appointment of Alison and well-deserved promotion of Sarah will help us to continue growing while always delivering the same level of excellent service for our clients.”

Pearson provides commercial property services for a number of the region’s biggest businesses, including Manchester Cabins, Rowham Steel Products, Hyde Industrial Holdings, Ainscough Strategic Land, Natures Nursery and Brantwood Design and Build.

As a firm, Pearson has steadily grown throughout the economic downturn, with turnover increasing by 20 per cent since 2009 to reach the £3m mark and staff numbers up by 13 per cent over the same period, taking the total number of employees to 54.
