Property consultancy Vail Williams LLP has expanded its Solent team with the appointment of associate Gurdeep Virdi.

Gurdeep joins the property asset management team from Vine Property Management LLP in Southampton, where he worked for 16 years as management surveyor.

The new role at Vail Williams includes helping occupiers, landlords, developers and investors achieve the best possible outcomes in commercial real estate.

He said: "“I set up the Southampton office of nationwide firm Vine 16 years ago. Over that time I gained a lot of experience, particularly about my home city of Southampton, which has a mixed economy and which is forecast to grow 1.7% in the year to the third quarter of 2019 – outperforming the predicted UK average.”
