Property consultancy King Sturge - which four months ago further strengthened its regional presence by launching an East Midlands operation based in Nottingham - has completed its most successful year ever.
The firm exceeded turnover of £110 million for the first time in its history, recording a 15 per cent increase over the previous twelve months.
Chris Monk, partner in charge of the Birmingham office, said: "King Sturge has achieved significant growth during the last year, not only in the UK marketplace but also overseas, where, since developing an association with a property consultancy in New Zealand last month, it now has representation in over 100 countries.
" However, I am also delighted to report that as far as the Midlands region is concerned we have also enjoyed our best-ever performance, increasing staff numbers and winning major new business."
King Sturge, which has just become a Limited Liability Partnership, also announced that Malcolm King had retired after 18 years as senior partner of the firm. Chris Ireland and Richard Batten have taken over as joint senior partners.
Mr Monk said: "Malcolm has left the firm in robust shape, ensuring that we are able to move onwards from a position of strength, and Chris and Richard both look forward to the challenge of expanding our diversity throughout our European operations."
