Our Team

Mark Upton – MRICS

Mark is drawn to entrepreneurial schemes, sites or buildings that make a positive difference – be that through their use of progressive design, their economic impact on the local area, or the long-term employment opportunities they generate.

After studying for a degree in Valuation and Estate Management at the University of the West of England, Mark became a professional associate of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and started a career in chartered surveying. Following a number of years at Donaldsons Chartered Surveyors he moved to become Director of Equity Acquisitions at Pizza Hut (UK) Ltd, acquiring over 75 stores for the company across the UK and Ireland. His experience at Pizza Hut gave him excellent contacts in the retail & leisure and roadside markets, which was invaluable when he set up his own property development and investment company.

Mark’s other business interests include a joint venture franchise through Costa.
