Walker Fraser Steele, one of Scotland’s oldest chartered surveying firms, and sister company to the UK-wide firm e.surv chartered surveyors, has appointed Donald MacLellan as its new Chairman.
Donald brings over 30 years of experience in the Scottish property market to his new role at Walker Fraser Steele. He started his own Estate Agency business in Lanarkshire in 1982 which he subsequently sold in 1998 to General Accident Property Services, the precursor to Your Move. Donald occupied several senior management positions throughout the changes from General Accident to Your Move, including Sales Director and Statutory Director, before its eventual management buyout by Aviva, (formerly Norwich Union), in 2004.
Now living in Hamilton, he is proud to claim his parental heritage from Tiree and North Uist in the Western Isles.
Alan Penman, spokesperson for Walker Fraser Steele said: “I’m delighted to welcome in Donald MacLellan as Chairman of Walker Fraser Steele. Donald has exceptional knowledge of the Scottish housing market, and a stellar reputation, having run his own estate agency business and worked in several senior directorship roles. His deep-rooted understanding of the Scottish property market will be invaluable as we continue to grow the Walker-Fraser Steele brand in Scotland – with the help of more resources from e.surv.”
Walker Fraser Steele announced their collaboration with e.surv chartered surveyors in June, with 18 e.surv surveyors operating under the Walker Fraser Steele brand in Scotland, significantly expanding Walker Fraser Steele’s coverage across the market.
