New Head of Rural Services - John Amos

Bruton Knowles Appoints New Head of Rural Services

National Chartered Surveyor firm, Bruton Knowles, has appointed John Amos as the firm's new Head of Rural Services. John, who has over 45 years' experience in the sector, will oversee both the Rural teams at Bruton Knowles, based predominately from the firm's Gloucester offcie and the John Amos & Co Leominster office. Bruton Knowles acquired the specialist rural practice, John Amos & Co, back in 2020.

John Amos comments: “We have progressively seen the Rural services team members at Bruton Knowles and at John Amos & Co working together more closely and collaboratively, and also alongside other national teams and departments within Bruton Knowles, particularly Land & Development. It seemed an obvious next move to bring the teams together to work on a closer partnership model and to that end, look at single management structure.

“This will provide a wider remit for our experienced specialists and career development opportunities for our junior staff members. The Business Development role will sit predominantly with me as we are seeing quite an uplift in enquiries from existing and new clients – from our South West heartland and now expanding north through The Midlands and further west across the Welsh border. We are already expecting a significant uplift in workload from the Rural Team this year.”

James Bailey is Managing Partner at Bruton Knowles: “John’s considerable experience and unrivalled reputation in the sector, together with his undimmed enthusiasm and drive, is proving to be motivating and inspiring for the whole team. We are delighted that he has agreed to take on this broader role at a time when his, and the team’s services, have never been in greater demand.”

John continued: ”My focus for the next six months will be to reach out to fellow professionals, farmers and landowners to add value in somewhat difficult times.

We will strive to improve the service levels across the Rural Sector, helping existing colleagues to develop their skills and knowledge whilst appropriately introducing new team members as we grow in the sector.”
