IMG 0328SOBEN chairman Paul Moultrie has become a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors – an international recognition of excellence.

He joins a group of professionals who stand out in the eyes of their peers, of business and of the public.

RICS qualifications are recognised around the globe, and a Fellowship is defined as “an honoured class of membership awarded on the basis of individual achievement within the profession”.

Only 20 per cent of RICS members become Fellows of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, and they are regarded as leaders in their fields of expertise.

In order to qualify for Fellowship, a candidate must demonstrate three, specific characteristics of a distinguished professional.

Some of the characteristics are:

  • Be appointed to a government post in a relevant field.
  • Lead a high-profile project of national or local significance.
  • Spurred innovation in a particular field.
  • Published research in an academic or professional journal.
  • Hold an advanced degree in a relevant field.

Paul has demonstrated a range of professional and technical competencies, experienced career progression and accepted opportunities for his skills to be enhanced and his standing in the industry to develop.


These achievements emphasise the authority and professionalism required to demonstrate commitment to the promotion and development of RICS and the wider profession.

He said: “I’m honoured and delighted to have become a Fellow of the RICS. It is a great accolade to have been able to move forward to be a FRICS, particularly in regard mentorship of younger, prospective Chartered Quantity Surveyors as they have developed their careers.”

Paul is also an immediate past chairman of the industry advisory group for the Quantity Surveying degree course at Glasgow Caledonian University and an honorary Fellow of the university.

A resident of Ayrshire, he is a keen golfer and recently represented Royal Troon at the World Club Championship in Thailand.
