Expansion for Rigby & Co

Bondholder Rigby & Co have enjoyed a successful year with record turnover and the recruitment of two key new members of staff.
Over the past 12 months, turnover at the Pride Park-based firm has increased by more than 30% thanks to a series of high profile projects. These include the relocation of 111 provider Derbyshire Health United to Bondholder Derby College’s Johnson Building on Pride Park and the sale of nine acres at Friar Gate Goods Yard in Derby to the Department of Education on behalf of Bondholder Clowes Developments,

Managing Director Russell Rigby is anticipating significant growth during the rest of 2018 and has made two key appointments to the team.

Mark Gratton has joined Rigby & Co from Fisher German. He will work closely with Russell to provide development consultancy support services to both private and public sector clients and also has a remit to grow the firm’s highly rated office agency team.

Nigel Gell has joined the firm as a consultant, having worked in the public sector for more than 30 years, overseeing major capital projects and the implementation of estates strategies. He will lead the growing number of public sector consultancy projects that the firm has been instructed on since the turn of the year in areas including the NHS and FE.

Commenting on this latest phase of growth, Russell said:

"It’s great to have Mark and Nigel in the business. Mark is an exceptionally talented surveyor and agent, with great potential.

"Nigel’s expertise and reputation will enable us to deliver more public sector led consultancy projects within local government, further education and the NHS across the East Midlands.
