Nick brings 25 years of industry experience to Robertson’s property arm, providing strategic insight at what is a crucial time for the business as it continues to develop its commercial portfolio throughout Scotland and North East England.

Born and raised near Aberdeen, Nick has held leadership roles at some of the country’s largest property companies, including more than a decade at Henry Boot Developments where he most recently served as director.

Construction for the project, which is due for completion in summer, is being carried out by Robertson’s construction business.

Derek Shewan, CEO of Robertson, said: “Nick has earned his stripes in leadership roles across Scotland’s property sector, building up an impressive knowledge of the industry which he will use to oversee and develop our commercial portfolio.

“Nick’s knowledge and guidance will allow us to further expand our client offering, which includes asset management, regeneration, funding solutions and property development, and we’re delighted to welcome him to the business.”

Nick said: “I’m really pleased to be joining the business at a time when there are some massively exciting opportunities in property, with huge potential for development. 

“The sheer scale of Robertson’s business and expertise is just astonishing and I’m looking forward to getting under the skin of each element and continuing to build on the property division and increase Robertson’s profile in property development.”
