Growth of national holiday and caravan park team
We have recently grown our holiday and caravan park team with the appointment of Lee Southan, who joins us as a senior surveyor.
The caravan park market continues to capitalise on buoyant trading conditions with our specialist caravan and holiday park teams agreeing in excess of £40M worth of sales over the past nine months.
Commenting on current market conditions, Chris Tucker, partner in our Exeter office said, “We are predicting that these strong trading conditions will continue, which will further reinforce the high value of parks and demand for well performing businesses.
“We felt that to capitalise on the strong market we needed to strengthen our team and Lee’s experience and reputation will undoubtedly make him a great asset to our specialist team. We are thrilled to have him on board and helping us to deliver our market leading services to holiday and caravan parks across the country”.
Lee has over 12 years of experience dealing with commercial agency transactions across all sectors, including pubs and hotels. In 2014 he won the Estates Gazette 'Deal Maker' of the year accolade for the Devon region.
At Sanderson Weatherall, Lee will be providing specialist valuation and agency services for holiday and caravan parks, predominantly across the south of England and South Wales. He joins a specialist team of six, who previously operated as Edwards and Partners, before Sanderson Weatherall acquired the firm in 2013.
Commenting on his appointment, Lee said, “As a child I enjoyed many family holidays in caravans and within my first few months in the job I have already inspected some of those same parks. It is a fascinating and buoyant sector with a lot of activity and I am looking forward to getting to know the movers and shakers and to putting some deals together.”
