North Associates, part of the WYG Group of Companies, welcomes James Bendle as their most recent addition to the team.
James joins from H & H Land and Property as Development Manager. He will form part of the Rural Asset Management team and will assist with the growth of the rural services offered by North Associates.
Having worked as a full time agricultural advisor for over 3 years and with many more years of practical experience from active involvement in the family farming businesses, James is well positioned to offer a wide range of technical and practical advice to rural businesses.
Through his practical experience and understanding of rural businesses James is able to work with clients to identify opportunities and seek solutions to issues faced on a day to day basis while working towards future strategic goals.
Andy Jamieson, Project Director of the Rural team, said: “I am delighted to welcome James to the team. Having worked closely with James for three years I know that he will significantly strengthen our offering within the rural sector. James is experienced beyond his years and is well liked in the rural community. He is a strategic thinker and fits well into our plans to develop a modern dynamic rural business offering to both existing and new clients.
The Rural sector following the Brexit vote is set to undergo significant change and will face challenges on many fronts. As a business we feel that we are developing a range of services which will position our clients at the forefront of any opportunities which may arise. By combining both Rural and Commercial offerings provided by the wider North Associates/WYG Group, our clients will be able to take advantage of the truly unique range of services offered”.
North Associates Operations Director, Simon de Vere, adds: “The rural sector is one which we are committed to supporting and are taking a pro-active approach with existing and future clients. Having the specialist in-house expertise provided by Andy and James will further strengthen our ability to create and add value to clients”.
