ADAS, the UK’s largest independent agriculture and environmental consultancy, is delighted to announce the appointment of Jane Kenny as Managing Director of its new business, ADAS Infrastructure and Rural Services (ADAS IRS). ADAS IRS will see the reputable brand ADAS, an RSK company, advising landowners and farmers on all matters affecting the countryside.
Owing to evolving government policy, including the Agriculture Act 2020, the Environment Bill and the prime minister’s ten-point plan for a green industrial revolution, there are many ongoing issues that face landowners, farmers and businesses today. ADAS IRS will be ideally placed to support on these matters and beyond.
Jane, a qualified chartered surveyor and expert estate manager with 20 years’ experience, joins ADAS from Savills. Based in Norfolk and operating across the UK, ADAS IRS is already advising on several Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects including offshore wind farms, and new and improved highways and is supporting clients in navigating the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.
“ADAS Infrastructure and Rural Services can support on a whole spectrum of land agency matters,” Jane explains. “We will be delighted to assist landowners, farmers and managers with anything rural, including landlord and tenant issues, farming matters, traditional estate management, compulsory purchase matters and business advice. We recognise that the agricultural and rural sectors are facing unprecedented times and special consideration will be needed to protect clients’ interests and to help them to realise the best return for their assets.”
With a passion for the industry, genuine care for clients, a wealth of expertise and backing from the ADAS and RSK brands, Jane and her team are ready to advise and support existing and new clients.
“The new business is a fantastic addition to the ADAS brand and extends our service offering,” adds ADAS Managing Director Andrew Walker. “We look forward to developing synergies between ADAS IRS and other ADAS and RSK businesses, including ADAS Agriculture and Land Management, RSK Habitat Management and the ADAS Planning, Landscape and Development team”.
