National property consultant Eddisons has appointed Jason Smith to the new role of director, with responsibility for real estate and commercial valuations across the North East.
Jason, who has 20 years’ experience of commercial property valuation in the north of England, joins Eddisons from specialist property adviser Christie & Co where he worked for ten years as a director. During his time with Christie & Co he built expertise in valuing trading businesses in the hospitality, leisure, healthcare, medical and retail property sectors.
