GVA buys Humberts Leisure

Property consultant GVA has bought UK leisure property specialist Humberts Leisure.

The acquisition will be completed later this month, creating a new leisure unit called GVA Humberts Leisure.

The merger will allow the company to tap into the wider UK leisure sector, including pubs, hotels, general leisure and holiday property.

Rob Bould, chief executive of GVA, said: "The move introduces a number of highly impressive specialist leisure chartered surveyors, planners and consultants to further supplement our existing team.

"The leisure sector requires a highly specialised skills set and it is important to us that we can deliver to our clients the best possible advice in these challenging times."

John Anderson, executive chairman of Humberts Leisure, commented: "We're delighted to have agreed the merger with GVA as this provides us with a strong platform from which to drive our growth strategy. Integration of the two complementary leisure teams is a tremendous enhancement to our national leisure service."
