28/06/21Forge Opens New Office in South Wales and Welcomes a New Director

We are delighted to announce the significant expansion of our business with the appointment of a new Director, Ed Merriman BSc (Hons) MRICS FAAV, who will head up our new South Wales office.

Ed is a Chartered Surveyor and RICS Registered Valuer and a Fellow of the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers. Like several other members of the Forge team, Ed studied at Harper Adams University. Having graduated with a degree in Rural Enterprise and Land Management, he has since gained valuable and diverse experience working for a variety of national and regionally based surveying and property organisations.

Based in Pembrokeshire, which is his locality, Ed will specialise in valuation and land compensation matters across South Wales and beyond, as well as providing strategic advice to clients across a broad range of surveying practice areas relating to agricultural, residential and commercial property.

Commenting on this exciting development for the business, Charles Lawson, Managing Director of Forge Property Consultants said,

“Having seen a steadily growing demand for our services across the regions in which we operate, including the length and breadth of Wales, I knew that the time was right to open a third Forge office. Having known Ed for some time, we knew that he would be a perfect fit with the rest of the team. We are delighted to have him on board. Having lived and worked in Pembrokeshire myself for seven years previously, I am also really pleased to have the opportunity to reconnect with the area”

Commenting on his appointment, Ed Merriman said,

“Having developed my professional skills and knowledge over the past few years across a wide range of surveying practice areas, I felt that the time was right join Forge. I am now looking forward to the challenge of building the Forge brand in South Wales.”
