TW Gaze appoint Rachael Hipperson as new partner

Diss-based chartered surveyors and auctioneers TW Gaze has appointed a new partner – a move which makes Rachael Hipperson the first female partner with a speciality in rural and agricultural work in Norfolk

The 30-year-old has become a partner with the firm as a rural surveyor, specialising in estates management with a particular focus on marsh areas.

She joined the firm in 2004 after graduating from Harper Adams University College in Shropshire, and two years ago was made an associate partner with TW Gaze.

Rachael is honorary secretary and treasurer of the Norfolk Association of Agricultural Valuers – the first woman secretary of that association – and has been in the post for four years.

She grew up in Crownthorpe, near Wymondham, where her parents Jack and Angela Hipperson farm. Rachael still helps run the arable farm with her parents.

Rachael went to school in the village of Wicklewood and was later a boarder at Wymondham College.

TW Gaze senior partner, Mike Sarson said: 'We are delighted to have Rachael join us as a partner. Her drive and enthusiasm for whatever work she handles is second to none. Rachael joins us at an exciting time with plans for firm-wide expansion which she will be a key part of.'
