LAND management agency George F. White has appointed a new partner in the business, to work specifically with its farm consultancy team.

Andrew Jamieson’s remit covers Northumberland, the Borders and Cumbria, where he will support landowners and farmers in the field of operational, financial and business planning.

He has 15 years’ experience under his belt, including a stint with George F. White’s in the past.

Well versed on farming policy and the current political landscape, he takes a holistic approach in the advice he gives, embracing practical farm management and building business resilience through diversification and changes in land usage.

Another partner, Simon Britton, said: “It’s wonderful to have Andrew back on board, joining us as a partner in the business, who enhances our farm consultancy team through the capabilities, connections and credibility he brings.

“Andrew has a special kind of calibre that is hard to find, and something that will distinguish our team from other farm consultancy services out there. His first-hand experience with farmers and landowners and his relationships with local architects, planners and developers will strengthen our farm team’s ability in helping clients to realise the potential of their land and business.”

Andrew himself said: “The people-focused culture of George F. White and the way the group really nurtures its employees, helping them to achieve their personal development goals in the context of the wider business objectives, really appealed to me.

“I hope my experience and knowledge can help to broaden the group’s offer not only to its existing farm and land clients, but also attract a wider client base through a cross-delivery of support, from practical farm management to strategic commercial advice, to help build resilience in turbulent times.

“I can’t wait to get started!”
