Highly regarded legal and property product expert joins the fast growing environmental data provider to lead on sustainable development reports.
GeoSmart Information, a sister company of ESI, one of the UK’s leading environmental consultancies, continues to expand its team with the appointment of Chris Taylor as Product Development Director.
A former founder of GroundSure, Technical Director at Argyll Environmental and Product Development Director at Landmark Information Group, Chris has an unequalled track record of bringing exemplary due diligence risk reports to the market for property professionals.
Reporting to Managing Director, Stuart Pearce, Chris will take charge of GeoSmart’s exciting product roadmap as it continues to deliver reports and data for land owners, architects, developers, local authorities and infrastructure providers.
Chris said: “I am delighted to join GeoSmart at such a pivotal time. We have seen this winter how climate change is presenting real challenges for our country’s property and key operational assets. I am looking forward to help address these concerns head on with a compelling range of risk management services.”
Chris has been instrumental in leading the charge to develop innovative data reports for the legal and consultancy markets over the last decade or so.
