Robson & Liddle has appointed agriculture and construction expert Robert Morris-Eyton as a consultant chartered surveyor.
Robert, aged 56, brings more than 30 years of experience to his new role, along with specialist dairy, sheep and construction knowledge.
As a chartered surveyor he specialises in farm tenancies, partnership issues, utility claims and commons-related issues on agricultural land, and in his new role will work advising farmers and landowners across the region.
Before joining Robson & Liddle, Robert previously worked as a consultant in the same field.
Robert’s new role will dovetail with managing his family’s dairy and sheep farming business, Beckside Farm, which has been in his family for 300 years. He is also managing director of Beckside Construction, which installs hydroelectric schemes across northern England.
Robert is a member of Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and is MRICS qualified, as well as being a fellow of the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers (CAAV), holding a FAAV qualification.
Robert said: “I enjoy my chartered surveyor work, which dovetails productively with my other business activities. Robson & Liddle has provided me with an excellent platform to continue my professional work with first class back-up and specialist knowledge and experience.
“It feels great to be part of a successful team, further developing the business. I have worked with partners John Robson and Julie Liddle in the past and enjoy being part of a close-knit partnership-style business.”
Julie commented: “We are thrilled to welcome Robert to our team and are confident he will be a huge success in his new consultancy role. We have known Robert for many years and believe his wealth of experience and industry knowledge will add significant value to our service offer, while helping to drive the growth of our business.”
In addition, Robert attended a Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) site managers course as part of his construction industry training and holds current health and safety and excavator operator tickets.
Married with three grown-up children, Robert attended Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester before commencing his professional career in Sussex and Carlisle.
