Move from Knight Frank
Garden makes switch to Ryden in Aberdeen
He joins the firm as a partner and head of project & building consultancy in Aberdeen.
Mr Garden replaces Ken Macpherson who leaves after 16 years to join Dunecht Estates, a long standing client of the firm.
At Knight Frank, Mr Garden was head of the building consultancy department for 12 years. Prior to that he worked as a director at Chesterton where he provided building consultancy services and assisted the co-directors with the transfer of the Chesterton business in Aberdeen to Knight Frank in 2004.
He is currently leading a team monitoring the £50 million Peterhead Port Authority inner harbour redevelopment project. He has also advised on a number of significant dilapidations claims in the city.
John Findlay, regional managing partner of Ryden’s Aberdeen office, said: “We are obviously disappointed to lose Ken but delighted to bring someone of Doug’s exceptional ability on board.
“He is a leader in his field and his experience, client-base and personality fit extremely well with our firm.”
