FIFE property expert Ewen Sparks has joined chartered surveyor DM Hall as head of the firm’s Cupar office.
An established figure in the local property market, Ewen was previously a partner at Shepherd Chartered Surveyors, where he was in charge of valuation surveying services out of the St Andrews office. In his new role with DM Hall, he will oversee operations covering most of the north-east of Fife, including St Andrews and East Neuk.
A partner at Shepherd since 2007, Ewen originally joined the firm’s Dundee office after graduating in 1989 with an honours degree in Estate Management from Heriot-Watt University. He re-located less than a year later to St Andrews, where he took over the management of the office in 1993 and was made an associate in 1995.
Eric Curran, managing partner of DM Hall, said the firm’s newest recruit will strengthen an already formidable professional team.
“Ewen has extensive experience of the Fife property scene, and is well-known throughout the area,” he said. “It’s a great pleasure to welcome him to the DM Hall family, and we look forward to a successful future together.”
Married with two children, Ewen was chairman of the St Andrews Merchants Association from 2003 to 2007. He is also a past president of the St Andrews Business Club.
Commenting on his new role, Ewen said: “Having lived and worked in Fife for the best part of 30 years, I’m pleased to be taking on a new role in a market that I very much know and care about. DM Hall is a highly-regarded name throughout Scotland, and it’s a privilege to be joining the firm.”
DM Hall is one of Scotland’s largest independent firms of chartered surveyors, with a network of 28 offices and more than 120 fully-qualified surveyors. It provides a range of services from Home Reports and commercial property valuations through to building consultancy and property management.
