Ayrshire’s John McHugh has been appointed to replace Eric Curran, who held the position for six years, as the new managing partner of survey firm DM Hall.
Mr. McHugh took the position on Jan. 1 and will work for the remainder of the year with Mr. Curran to ensure a “smooth transition.”
Mr. McHugh started his working life as a newly qualified surveyor in DM Hall’s Glasgow office some thirty years ago. He took over the then newly opened Irvine office after three years, where he has since led colleagues across Ayrshire in developing the business.

He plans to travel the country in 2021 to interact with employees at DM Hall’s 25 offices throughout Scotland, travel restrictions permitting.
“I was privileged to be elected by my fellow partners as managing partner to succeed Eric,” Mr. McHugh said. “I am delighted and encouraged that they have placed their trust in me to continue the good work he has done over the last few years and to maintain the services, relationships and standards of professionalism of which we are all justifiably proud.”
Alan Gordon, senior partner at DM Hall, welcomed the appointment and continued contribution of Mr. Curran, who has been with the firm for 43 years.
In the Scottish real estate industry, Eric is a highly respected figure who has spent the last six years as managing partner upholding and developing the values we stand for as a company. We thank him for his outstanding service while wishing John every success in his new role,”Eric is a highly respected figure in the Scottish real estate industry who, as managing partner, has spent the last six years upholding and developing the values we stand for as a firm.

Mr. Curran added, “It has been a privilege for me to serve as managing partner of DM Hall, and I am delighted for my colleague John McHugh, who will succeed me in the next 12 months. John will undoubtedly bring a fresh perspective and new ideas that will benefit the firm and add value to our clients.
“I still have a lot to do and achieve before I retire, after what can only be described as a terrible year for all of us, and I look forward to working with John and Alan to achieve our shared goals for the company.”
