Mark was formerly with Hartnell Taylor Cook in Bristol where he specialised in property investment consultancy on behalf of a number of institutions, property companies, family trusts and private individuals. His work was predominantly concentrated in the South West and South Wales but included national coverage on behalf of various retained clients.
In the mid 1990s Mark moved to GVA in Birmingham where he subsequently became head of the Investment Department, responsible for a team of surveyors advising clients on property assets in the West and East Midlands.
Needing a new challenge, Mark established Mark Atkins Associates in October 1997 with the ambition of providing a personal service to many of his long standing clients. Mark is a Chartered Surveyor.
