Congratulation to Ken on well-deserved honour

Congratulations to our Consultant Ken Veness on being awarded Honorary Life Membership by the Portsmouth Property Association (PPA).
Former PPA Chairman Ken received the accolade in recognition of his long service and dedication to the property sector and the PPA.
Ken, who has more than 40 years of experience, said: “It’s a tremendous honour to be recognised by my peers in this way and my sincere thanks go to all at the PPA.
“Although the industry has changed in many ways over the years, the PPA’s commitment to excellence among its membership has remained the same.
“I, and all at McAndrew Martin, look forward to continuing to support the PPA as it champions the industry and helps Portsmouth prosper.”
Ken, who was PPA Chairman in 1997, founded Veness Chartered Surveyors in 1973.
The Cosham-based firm served clients across South Hampshire and West Sussex.
In 2014 Veness Chartered Surveyors merged with McAndrew Martin, which is a member of the PPA.
Ken and staff, including Chartered Surveyor Alf Wimshurst, relocated to our offices at the Fairway Business Centre in Portsmouth.
Neil Hawkins, who is Secretary at PPA, said: “This honour is richly deserved recognition of Ken’s distinguished long service and outstanding contribution to the PPA, the property sector and the city.”
Our Director Ian Lee is also a former PPA chairman. Ian, Ken, Alf and our Managing Director Bill McAndrew are all Fellows of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
Ian said: “Congratulations from all at McAndrew Martin to Ken on receiving this honour.
“Ken has played a key role in driving the firm forward over the past 18 months and we’re looking forward to seeing him continue to play an integral part in our business success in the future.”
The PPA has a record 147 members. It draws together all kinds of property related businesses – including chartered surveyors, estate agents, auctioneers, bankers and lettings agents – into a single, recognised professional body.
