Jane boosts growing team at Andrew and Ashwell

12 February 2017

Leading Leicestershire commercial property specialist Andrew and Ashwell is expanding once again with the welcome on board of Jane Taylor. 

Formerly at the Leicester office of Lambert Smith Hampton, which closed last December, Jane has been a prime mover on the local commercial property scene for nearly 25 years. She now joins Andrew and Ashwell as a consultant.

Born in Leicester, Jane entered the profession having worked for Nat West after leaving Collegiate Girls’ School and later starting a family. She studied land management as a mature student at De Montfort University and in 1993 joined local commercial property agent Connell Wilson, which later became Lambert Smith Hampton.

Jane has chosen to join Andrew and Ashwell, alongside former colleagues Malcolm Grayson, Mike Allwood and Geoff Gibson, who were all previously with Lambert Smith Hampton.

Over the past two years Andrew and Ashwell has expanded considerably, recruiting a clutch of experienced commercial property experts. Now with eight chartered surveyors, plus several graduate trainees and support staff, this long-established firm is at the forefront of the profession and aims to remain there.

Jane now lends her wealth of experience in the office sector, as well as agency and professional matters, to this growing firm and is already enjoying her new role. One of few women involved in the agency side of the business, she brings with her an impressive portfolio of loyal clients, reflected in the accolade of The Leicester Mercury’s Most Influential People in Leicestershire list in 2016.

“This is an ideal job for me, as I not only enjoy working with property of all kinds, but enjoy the challenge of solving property issues for a range of interesting people. Every day is different and it’s great being able to work with my old team-mates again.”

Director Malcolm Grayson added: “Jane is a valuable addition to Andrew and Ashwell. Her considerable experience and widespread knowledge of the sector further strengthens our dedicated team as we continue to look to the future in providing exacting professional, management and agency services to a diverse range of clients.”
