ESTATE agents Savills has promoted Mike Shaw to head of eastern region.

Mr Shaw, who has held a number of senior positions during 30 years at the company, will lead the growth of its multi-disciplined business from offices across the region, including Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds.

He succeeds William Stanton, who held the post for three years and is handing over the reins in order to focus on personal projects. He remains a consultant to Savills.

Mr Shaw began his career as an agricultural agent after leaving the Royal Agricultural College in Cirencester. He progressed from farm sales into the development market and has been responsible for expanding the traditional rural and residential practice into the planning, commercial and development sectors.

“As head of region, I hope to continue to offer quality advice to our wide range of clients, as well as progressing and developing our business in the east. Savills' primary function is to anticipate our clients' needs and provide clear, proactive advice in the ever-changing property world,” he said.

Other new appointments include Edward Saunders, who has been appointed to the corporate real estate division. He will be based in the eastern region, but will work on projects throughout the country.
