The Commercial Property Network (CPN)

Naylors Gavin Black partner Fergus Laird has been President of National Commercial Property Network  since 2020.  Fergus became president of PAI (as was) just as the UK entered into lockdown and helped drive the network to support its members during those difficult times.  As we emerged from Covid Fergus was integral to the rebranding of the network that had existed as Property Agents Independent since the 1960’s!

Formerly known as PAI, The Commercial Property Network is a collective of 29 privately owned, highly experienced firms spanning the UK.  For over 50 years the network has enabled its member firms to provide a highly personalised approach to clients by offering unrivalled local expertise, nationally, across a wide spectrum of specialisms – from commercial investment, building consultancy and property management, to capital allowances and environmental surveying (and pretty much everything in between).  Naylors Gavin Black is proud to have been a member of this forward-thinking organisation for around 20 years.

Today, The Commercial Property Network is the UK’s largest connected network of independent real estate businesses giving coverage across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.  The rebrand recognises the long and rich history but, more importantly, communicates just how much the network has evolved to remain relevant and progressive.  Proof of the impact of this change will be seen in the actions of our clients and potential clients – will they continue to move away from big institutions in favour of an agile and entrepreneurial organisation?  The signs are promising and we are excited about the future.

If you would like to discuss any of our services I’d be delighted to hear from you so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Many thanks,

Fergus Laird –

President, The Commercial Property Network
