Candidates must complete studies, submit a file of evidence of real-world experience, and pass an interview with a panel to qualify.She joins our Development Director Jeremy Sharland, Investment Director Greg Lukasiewicz, Asset Manager Rachel Lacklison and Chief Executive Chris Fry as MRICS-qualified team members.

Fiona said: “It’s been an intensive process with lots of studying during evenings and weekends, as well as doing the day job. The team here have all been very supportive and I am proud to have achieved this qualification and to continue to play my part in the success of Kingsbridge. Now I have passed, I’m looking forward to having a little bit more spare time!”

Meanwhile Zanna Duncan, our Management Accountant, becomes a member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).

To achieve the qualification, Zanna studied for and sat a total of 13 examinations, as well as meeting performance objectives during her day-to-day work with Kingsbridge.

Zanna said: “I am grateful to the team here for all the support they have given me during my studies and pleased to have achieved this qualification as I progress my career at Kingsbridge.”

Chris Fry, Chief Executive at Kingsbridge, said: “Congratulations to Fiona and Zanna, who are integral to the successful team here at Kingsbridge.
