Garden makes switch to Ryden in Aberdeen

Doug GardenCommercial property consultancy Ryden has hired building surveyor Doug Garden from Knight Frank.

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.”
