Part of the City Surveys team since 2012 and a hardworking, driven professional, Sevim's focus is the commercial and financial well being of the company. Involved in all projects regardless of size and highly regarded by our clients, Sevim's responsibilities include supply chain management, client and subcontractor contracts, invoicing, high level credit control, insurances and more.

Following the completion of her degree and prior to joining the company, Sevim was a key part of the commercial and facilities team at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers in London. The very same skills she uses to the benefit of City Surveys and its clients were used to great effect on behalf of the IMechE.

"The thing that I love about our company, that I am the most proud of, that gives me the motivation and inspiration that I need on a daily basis is the fact that we are not afraid of change. When I first joined the company we were at a turning point whereby if we made a big change and took a measured risk then it would catapult us from being just another survey company into a major player within the industry. We took the chance, made the changes necessary and are now the successful and thriving company you see today.

Our team is made up of like minded people who have a shared goal and that is to make our company exceptional. We know that this can’t happen without the commitment, determination and skill set of every individual; this is what makes us a team and what drives us forward. I am proud of the team and of our ever-changing and ever-growing company."
