Simon Pallett has been elected chairman of Carter Jonas LLP.
Pallett, a partner in the firm’s Winchester and Newbury offices, takes over from John Henniker-Major, chairman since 2007, who will continue working from Carter Jonas’ Northampton office.
In recent years a series of mergers and acquisitions, along with prime markets in London and elsewhere performing strongly, have seen Carter Jonas expand its operations across its planning and development, commercial, residential and rural teams.
The firm now has over 700 people working from 35 offices.
“It is a great honour to be elected by my fellow partners to head the firm, which has grown exponentially over the last decade in order to offer a more complete service to our larger and increasingly varied client base” says Pallett.
The firm’s chief executive, Mark Granger, says the firm has “an ambitious growth strategy in place” for the future.
