James Galbraith, of CKD Galbraith added: “Guy Warren is a highly experienced forester with excellent knowledge and ideas for the forestry sector and I am delighted that such an experienced professional will further strengthen our dedicated forestry division at a time which sees our team busy with several large scale woodland creation projects and implementing long term forest plans for a number of our estate clients.”
To date Guy has had a very successful career in the forestry sector, highlights have included; handling the sale of England’s largest privately owned forest which concluded earlier this year and being invited to present to the Independent Panel on Forestry on new forms of finance for forestry in England.
Guy will be taking a leading role in building CKD Galbraith’s investment and acquisitions advice services, overseeing the development of the firm’s forestry assurance management systems and building on our success in the forestry sales sector.
