CKD Galbraith Bags Sporting Pro with a Brace of Appointments and a Promotion

CKD Galbraith has announced a brace of new appointments and a promotion to strengthen and take forward its well-established Sporting Lets department.

Former golf-pro Ted Innes Ker will join the team while the Buell Group's Roddy Watt takes on a consultancy role. There is also a promotion for Mungo Ingleby who becomes an Associate with CKD Galbraith's high value sporting and leisure business.

Ted Innes Ker joins the Sporting Lets team to assist in the development and expansion of providing exclusive tailor made itineraries for those seeking the very best that Scotland has to offer. 

With a background in and in depth knowledge of the country and field scene, Ted is no stranger to the world of sport - although lately of a slightly different kind! Recently retiring as a professional golfer, Ted achieved his ambition when he turned pro in 2010 and played in a variety of tours and tournaments worldwide including numerous European Tour events during a five year career. Prior to this, he worked as an Event Manager with WSM Sponsorship and on the European Senior and Ladies Tours. 

Commenting on his appointment Ted Innes Ker said:

I am delighted to be joining the Sporting Lets team and look forward to hand crafting bespoke packages for clients ranging from the serious about sport' Macnab bagger to groups looking for a uniquely tailored sporting experience taking in the very best that Scotland has to offer.

Mungo Ingleby, who joined the Sporting team in 2013, has been promoted to the position of Associate. During his time at Sporting Lets Mungo has developed and improved the profile and market awareness of the department, whilst strengthening the ethos of providing the very best professional service to estates and clients.

A qualified Chartered Surveyor, he previously worked in commercial property but has always been a keen fieldsportsman and has hands-on experience of the industry from seasons spent working on a stalking estate, as a ghillie on Grimersta Estate on Lewis and managing a fishing camp in Russia.

Sporting Lets has also appointed Roddy Watt as a consultant. An entrepreneur with in-depth knowledge of the hospitality & leisure sectors, Roddy has a particular strength in building businesses; developing strategies for growth and value creation; and helping them to realise their full potential. He is CEO of the Buell Group, the UK's largest advisory and service conglomerate for the hospitality and leisure sectors.

Commenting on the appointments, Robert Rattray, partner and head of CKD Galbraith's Sporting Lets, said: 

We are pleased to welcome Ted to the Sporting Lets team; to reward Mungo with a promotion and to add Roddy as a guiding hand. These are very exciting appointments which represent a significant further investment by CKD Galbraith in the leisure sector of our business which will place us well ahead of our competition, and enable us to continue to provide the very best tailored service to our clients.
