Julian is the founder and owner of Earl Kendrick Associates (EKA). Julian’s focus is on strategic business development, consultancy and offering thought leadership to the wider property industry.
Julian’s philosophy is that surveying is a people business, demanding a commitment to building relationships as well as deploying technical knowledge. That philosophy has guided the way he has shaped the business and hand-picked colleagues to form a cohesive team that puts clients first and takes pleasure in meeting each one’s particular needs. Having been founded in 2010, EKA now have more than 20 staff in offices in central London, Manchester and Brighton.
Julian has a passion for fresh thinking about the surveying business, and how businesses can evolve better to serve the needs of our clients. In recent years, EKA have relaunched our core services as separate business entities, and Julian now plays Director roles in EK McQuade (party wall specialists) and EK Design.
As well as surveying, Julian has a background in architecture and he is a trained interior designer and he is well placed to drive the growth of EK Design. EK Design offers comprehensive interior/architectural design services, with particular expertise in the refurbishment of internal communal areas of high quality, residential blocks. Julian is in the process of building an expert design team equipped to meet the needs of both private clients and those in the managed residential sector.
In addition to guiding EKA’s own business development, Julian is increasingly involved in drafting guidance rules and acting as an expert witness in property-related matters. Julian regularly write for trade press and offer high-level training for fellow professionals, as well as presenting at industry events. Julian enjoys playing a leading role in industry bodies like the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), for which he sits on the property management working group of the Residential Property Professional Group. Julian am also a member of the RICS editorial advisory group.
