Vail Williams has made two senior appointments to its Thames Valley team.

Martin Hughes and Laura Haleem, both previously with Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH), have joined the firm’s valuation team as partner and associate respectively. 

Mr Hughes has 27 years’ experience both in the Thames Valley and wider South East region, most recently as LSH’s regional head of valuation. Ms Haleem has more than 10 years’ experience in valuation and development appraisals.

David Thomas, Vail Williams’ regional managing partner for the Thames Valley, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Martin and Laura to join our growing full property service team here in Reading. 

“This is very much part of the next stage of our growth plan as we look ahead to 2022 and beyond.”  

Both began their roles on February 7.
