A new director has been appointed at East Midlands Chartered Surveyors and Property Consultants Wells McFarlaneJason Hercock has been promoted to Director, joining co-founders and directors Trevor Wells and Andrew McFarlane Holt as a member of the senior management and leadership team.

Following a successful six year career as a professional golfer working as a qualified PGA professional Jason retired from the Midlands circuit and pursued another passion of his, property.

Jason joined Wells McFarlane in March 2017 as a commercial associate having been inspired early on in his property career to pursue a path as a Chartered Surveyor while working as a residential property consultant for a Leicestershire based practice.

Advised by colleagues to qualify as a Chartered Surveyor, Jason took note and started the gruelling challenge of studying for a Land Management degree as a part time mature student at De Montford University while working full-time as a property consultant. Testament to his tenacity and determination, Jason successfully completed his degree and went on to forge a successful career at a top ten independent firm of surveyors based in Cambridgeshire. A move back to the Midlands saw Jason go on to complete his Chartership with a national firm of surveyors, securing his membership of The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

On first meeting with Wells McFarlane Jason said “I was struck by the scale and profile of their commercial portfolio and it was clear to me that the ambition of the company matched my own personal career ambitions”

Two years on and Jason is as ambitious as ever and is on a mission to raise the firms profile, adding “we’re currently involved in three of the biggest land deals in the East Midlands, a key aim of mine is to continue to raise our profile as a leading agent within Leicestershire, the East Midlands and increasingly further afield.”
