Borderer Peter Scott Aiton is celebrating after being promoted to partner at CKD Galbraith.
The country’s leading independent property and rural consultancy firm announced five key promotions last week.
This included Peter staying within the building survey department, while becoming a partner, working from Edinburgh.
The 30-year-old is the youngest member of staff to be made a partner of the firm.
Tim Kirkwood, chief executive for CKD, said: “We have continued to enjoy growth across our various business streams, particularly in the commercial and building surveying sectors. Our building surveying service continues to grow rapidly.
“Peter joined the firm in 2010 and after rapid promotion to senior associate, joins the partnership as the youngest partner. Having started his career in London, he returned home to the Borders, where he originates from.
“Currently, he is working across the UK in both the commercial and rural sectors of the firm.”
