Eddisons expands business valuation team with new South East director appointment


Rapidly growing property consultancy Eddisons has appointed James Bampton as a new director within its business valuation team.

Bampton specialises in providing business valuations across the hospitality, licensed, leisure and medical, or ‘white coat’ sectors, assessing both trading businesses and vacant properties with the potential to trade. He joins Eddisons from Milton Keynes-based Pinders with over 20 years’ valuation experience.

Working between Eddisons’ London office and his home in Kent, Bampton’s primary focus will be the London and South East markets. His appointment takes the firm’s business valuation team to 18 qualified chartered surveyors across the UK and is part of Eddisons’ rapidly growing, 100-strong wider valuation team.


Eddisons business valuation director David Hayton said: “Business valuation is a growing area for the firm and we are really pleased to welcome James who, with his impressive experience of providing valuations for hotels and pubs as well as the whole range of healthcare sector businesses, will be a great asset to Eddisons. His in-depth knowledge of the market in London and the South East region, is second to none.”

Hayton added: “We are growing our business valuation team and our in-house development programme currently has two surveyors in training. Eddisons also has a number of key business valuation hires planned which will drive the growth of the team over this spring and summer and beyond.”


James Bampton said: “I’m excited to be joining Eddisons at a time when its profile and strong growth are generating a wide range of opportunities, not least in the business valuation field.

“The country has been through a global pandemic, a post-Covid bounce and now high inflation, all within a relatively short time frame. Some sectors have definitely fared better than others, so a good understanding of each market is so important right now.

“I’ve built up a strong bank of expertise and contacts over the last two decades, and I’m looking forward to using that expert knowledge in my London and South East-based roles at Eddisons.”


Following a string of acquisitions, including that of SDL Property Auctions in December, Eddisons now employs around 500 people across a network of more than 30 UK offices.
