Getting to know...
Senior Farm Business Consultant and Rural Surveyor
James is a qualified Chartered Surveyor and a Central Association of Agricultural Valuers (CAAV) member. James grew up living and working on a family farm in East Yorkshire, in which he retains a keen interest and involvement. James has joined us as a Senior Farm Business Consultant/Senior Rural Surveyor, allowing him to deliver a wide range of professional advice to farm businesses, tenants and owner-occupiers.
James’s experience as a Rural Surveyor allows him to provide a variety of professional advice including landlord & tenant matters, valuation and succession planning. He specialises in Farm Finance having previously been a registered AMC agent as well as working with other banks to secure loans for his clients. As a Farm Business Consultant, James has dealt with establishing and managing Contract Farming Agreements as well as being heavily involved in Countryside Stewardship applications, SFI and Productivity Grants.
James is also forming part of the team for the Farm Business Advice Service (FBAS) covering most of East Yorkshire and some areas of North Yorkshire. Change presents fantastic opportunities, however, not without its challenges. James thoroughly enjoys working with clients to overcome those challenges and maximise opportunities.
I find the food and farming industry and the rural economy completely fascinating. The amount of change I have seen just in the last five years of my career has been astonishing, which makes each day very different.
