WEST Yorkshire chartered surveyors Walker Singleton have appointed Jonathan O’Connor as an associate in the commercial property office in Huddersfield.

Mr O’Connor (above, right) joins from Eddisons, where he spent eight years as an associate director in the firm’s commercial agency department.

Daniel Hey (above, left), an existing associate with Walker Singleton, transfers from the firm’s Halifax office to Huddersfield to head the new machinery and business assets department in the town serving Kirklees and the wider area.

Mr Hey is a specialist in this area and has been with the firm for 10 years providing asset valuation and sales advice to financial professionals and private clients across the UK.

Walker Singleton opened its growing Huddersfield office four years ago. The office at New North Road is now the base for eight professional staff with administrative support. This is expected to increase as the firm extends its presence and influence in Kirklees.
