Giles Ferris was born in Sherington near Newport Pagnell and was educated locally in Bedford.
Going on to attend De Montfort University, Giles qualified as a Chartered Surveyor in 1998 whilst working for Luton Borough Council.
Giles gained his considerable experience whilst working for Douglas Duff, a local large firm of Chartered Surveyors where he was a member of the Professional Department, advising corporate clients throughout the country on a wealth of commercial property matters.
The opportunity to acquire Stimpsons Eves in 2005 allowed Giles to expand an already well known and highly respected firm of Chartered Surveyors, injecting new life and enthusiasm where he has worked hard to create a more client friendly practice which he felt was considerably lacking in the market place at the time.
Giles is married with a young family and in his spare time enjoys restoring classic cars (with particular interest in VW campervans), skiing and surfing.
