Heaton expands country team with ‘A-list’ signing

Heaton & Partners, the top-end consultancy set up two years ago by former Property Vision man Ed Heaton, has poached a key member of Strutt & Parker’s buying team.

New Associate Partner Charlie Warner will cover the same coveted Home Counties patch (encompassing Hampshire, Sussex, South Surrey and Kent) he looked after during his four-year stint at Strutts, and brings the Heaton headcount up to ten.

Warner spent a number of years in Savills’ Country House Department before making the move into acquisitions and his appointment is being described by the Knightsbridge & Newbury-based firm as “the final piece of the jigsaw in our country office”.

Edward Heaton, Founder of Heaton & Partners: “I am delighted to announce that Charlie Warner has joined the country team of Heaton & Partners. He is a great addition to our firm and really is the final piece of the jigsaw in our country office. I am very proud that we have been able to build such a strong buying team in the south of England over the last couple of years. We have a vast amount of experience between us and an enviable reputation.

“The expertise our partnership offers continues to go from strength to strength. We now have incredibly extensive coverage with a team of ten now operating throughout London and southern England. We had a storming year in 2014 and a really strong start to this year and expect our success to continue to grow as we enter the summer months.”

Charlie Warner: “I am thrilled to join such a well-respected firm of property consultants. Having spoken with Edward, it was clear from the outset that we would make an excellent team. It gives me the opportunity to work within a partnership which has grown quickly because it has such a strong reputation in both London and the country markets.”
