Chris Ion has been appointed as a director at Graham + Sibbald's Aberdeen city branch.

A well-established property consultancy firm has appointed a new director for its Aberdeen office.

Chris Ion has landed the senior role within Graham + Sibbald’s commercial department in the Granite City.

The firm employs more than 200 staff across a total of 17 UK offices in Scotland and England.

Working across multiple sectors, Graham + Sibbald has presences in a number of specialist areas including hotel and leisure, healthcare, petroleum and ports and harbours.

‘I’m looking forward to working in a varied role,’ Chris Ion.

Its Aberdeen office first opened in 1989 and it has grown to be one of the company’s key city locations.

Chris is aiming to bring a fresh perspective to the team.

With a Master’s degree in Property and Management from the University of Aberdeen, Chris joined Knight Frank property consultancy as a graduate before switching his focus to agency and capital markets.

He acquired a wealth of property expertise and was involved in the high-profile sale of 16 North Esplanade West let to Neptune Energy earlier this year.

As director, Chris’s remit will involve disposals and acquisitions of commercial properties on behalf of a range of clients across Aberdeen and the surrounding areas.

He will also aid in the development and service offering of the Graham + Sibbald commercial team across Scotland.

‘I’m excited to be joining Graham + Sibbald at such an opportunistic time,’ Chris Ion.

Speaking of his new appointment, Chris said: “After seeing the business rebrand and reposition themselves in the market over the last few years, I’m excited to be joining Graham + Sibbald at such an opportunistic time.

“I’m looking forward to working in a varied role covering both agency and investment instructions on behalf of clients in this next step in my career, within a forward-thinking and expanding company.”

Partner and head of commercial agency, Keith Watters, said: “We are pleased to welcome Chris to our Aberdeen team at a time when we are experiencing growth and high levels of activity.

“He will be a key asset to the established team and I’m very much looking forward to working alongside him.”

Bruce Murdoch.

Aberdeen office partner Bruce Murdoch also added: “Whilst the Aberdeen market has had its challenges over the past 18 months, there has been transactional activity.

“I am pleased that Graham + Sibbald have been involved in a number of the deals that have been concluded.

“Chris is a well-known player in the local market and a welcome addition to the Aberdeen office commercial team, leading and expanding on our commercial agency services offering across the city and shire.”
