Chris Daniells, founding partner of Daniells Harrison Chartered Surveyors, has taken on a new role at DHCS as Senior Partner – Strategy and Business Development.
Chris remains Head of General Practice for Daniells Harrison Chartered Surveyors but has extended his area of work to include business development for the firm as a whole, providing strategic guidance and promotion for both DHCS’s General Practice and Building Surveying Departments.
Historically the company has operated both a General Practice and Building Surveying arm with business development taking place within each function. However, the Partners were keen to exploit the current market opportunities in a more joined up way and Chris is working across the business and wider markets to facilitate the many opportunities that exist with considerable success.
DHCS has always been a completely professional firm offering a range of property services to a wide variety of clients. We have been keen to monitor what makes clients happy and we have set our stall accordingly. After 26 years in business we have gone some way to perfect this and we now offer a special service from a special team. To some extent this makes my job easy as our brand, our professionalism and our reputation go before me.
As Head of General Practice Chris remains consultant surveyor to a number of Dioceses and other charitable organisations, a Registered RICS Valuer and one of the most experienced Fixed Charge Licenced Property Receivers in the profession. He is also exceptionally well known in the residential property development world acting for a significant number of local, regional and national developers and is currently handling option valuation negotiations for schemes totalling in excess of £150m.
We have recently opened our fourth office at Bournemouth which has made an immediate impact. We are looking at other specific locations within the south and this makes DHCS very exciting for everyone. We will soon be announcing some new staff additions to the team to help with the increased levels of work received.
