Stratton Creber Commercial has announced a new appointment within its Truro office.

Adam Beverley-Jones will head up the firm’s agency activities throughout the county, specialising in the disposal and acquisition of retail, office, industrial, investment properties and going concerns.

Educated at Seale Hayne Agricultural College in Devon, Adam started his property career in Cornwall some 20 years ago.

He went on to work for Knight Frank in Southampton, where he undertook the marketing of privately operated hotels and guest houses in the southern and south west regions.

More recently, Adam worked for a firm of auctioneers in South Wales.

He says: “I am delighted to have returned to Cornwall with my family and am looking forward to the challenges ahead. I hope to catch up with previous contacts from the early stages of my career and utilise all my experiences and contacts to date”

Managing Director Chris Ryland says: “We are really pleased to have Adam on board.

“This is an exciting time for commercial property in Cornwall and we’re lucky to have found someone of Adam’s calibre to lead our agency activities throughout the county.”

Based in Plymouth, Truro and Exeter, Stratton Creber Commercial provides specialist commercial property advice throughout the South West and was recently named Devon’s Most Active Agent for the eighth consecutive year by EGi, the online arm of industry-leading journal Estates Gazette. The firm’s Cornwall office was named fourth active in the county.
