Cameron decided to join the family firm in late 2018 with over 10 years experience working in the property sector, his experience has given him a solid understanding of what it takes to deliver the best client service.
Having worked as an Associate Director with Jones Lang Lasalle for 10 years and latterly working as Land and Development Manager with Cruden, Cameron has developed a broad understanding of the property market from the perspective of both the advisor and client. Whilst at Cruden he was responsible for sourcing land and development opportunities across Scotland and Northern England and managing projects, taking the lead in the coordination of external professionals and public sector bodies to ensure the timely delivery of developments. At Jones Lang LaSalle responsibilities included the delivery of large scale, complex development valuation instructions on behalf of a number of high street and bespoke lenders, National House Builders, private clients and public sector bodies.

She spent over 12 years working in the property sector, in residential lettings. Whilst in that role she was responsible for sourcing new clients and properties and managing the client relationships.
Maternity leave meant a change of direction and Catherine started an online retail business, where she gained many valuable skills, including website development, marketing, digital marketing and various business skills.

As Cameron and Catherine’s youngest started school, and Cathy was looking to take a step back, it was perfect timing for Catherine to join the family business.
