Who We Are

Chris Haworth

BSC FRICS ARPS

Chris has worked in the property industry for almost 40 years, starting his career working on a valuation of the Grosvenor Belgravia Estate in London before ‘crossing to the dark side’ and working for a number of major development companies over a period of 20 years including Builders Amalgamated, a subsidiary of Trafalgar House and Neale House Investments, a retail developer associated with the Cooperative Insurance Society.

He was then approached to join Carter Jonas, to head up the team responsible for driving forward development on land owned by the Crown Estate and other major landowners. In that role, as well as heading up the Commercial Division of the firm, Chris led the promotion of land for a number of developments, including land for 450 dwellings in Nottinghamshire, a joint venture with an adjoining landowner for 5,000 dwellings in Norfolk and several development sites in Hertfordshire ranging from 75 dwellings up to 2,500. Chris is highly experienced in community engagement and managing the team to deliver planning at the earliest opportunity and to maximise value for the landowner.

When not pursuing his love of property, Chris is a keen shot and skier, and also a part time professional photographer, specialising in portraits, property and theatrical productions, the latter being mainly in support of his younger two children both of whom are determined to follow a career of stage and screen.
