In addition Natalie Keenan, who started in August 2018 has been moved up to operations manager, while Mollie McLoughlin, who joined in October 2018, has been promoted to assistant operations manager.

Gina Mayand, co-founder of VAS Group, said: “I truly believe we have one of the best and most dedicated teams in the valuations market and their level of commitment has to be recognised. Louise, Lisa, Natalie and Molly all deserve their promotion because of the leading roles they have played in building the business, and their vision for its future.”

Stephen Todd, co-founder of VAS Group, added: “The group has reached a level where the company requires a far more traditional board structure to meet all future growth aims

“For these roles we only had to look at the people within the business because we have so many exceptional staff who will rise to the challenge.”
