Jon has been in the building surveying profession for 25 years, after joining Bucknall Austin as a graduate in 1993. He moved back to Yorkshire in 1998 to join Weatherall Green & Smith and five years later he moved to GVA Grimley, where he stayed for eight years. He has been head of the Lambert Smith Hampton Leeds office for the past four years and jointly heads the LSH national building consultancy division.
A wide variety of building surveying and project management instructions has provided Jon with a breadth of experience ranging from abattoirs in Preston to biscuit factories in Worksop and outdoor activity residential centres in Doncaster to country houses in North Yorkshire.
Whilst at GVA, Jon took part in a sponsored abseil event for LandAid and through this was keen to volunteer to join the Yorkshire Board of LandAid two years ago. Since then Jon organised a charity walk with LSH colleagues raising funds for LandAid in 2016.
