Bedfords wasset up almost 50 years ago by David Bedford, and senior partner, Paul Bedford, said: “We have ambitious expansion plans and this is really a match made in heaven for both parties.
“Emmerson has, like our own team, experience in working with top quality town and country properties and he understands the equestrian market, which is an important part of our business.
Mr Dutton, who previously worked for Bedfords, has welcomed the opportunity to join the larger company as a partner.
