Deloitte Real Estate announces raft of promotions

Peter Wilkinson, Head of Deloitte Real Estate

Deloitte Real Estate’s Northern team has announced a number of promotions across its planning, capital advisory, and valuation teams following a strong year in which the firm has helped deliver multi-million pound projects.

Deloitte’s Manchester planning team has had an exceptional year, and recently announced its delivery of 27 key developments in the city between June 2016 and July 2017 that will deliver a combined 8,388 units. This includes Trinity Island (approved in July 2017) and Owen Street (approved in June 2016) at 67-storeys and 64-storeys respectively.

In recognition of this success, the Manchester office has announced a number of promotions across its real estate teams. Andy Cowan has been promoted to Senior Planner following his work on schemes such as Manchester Life Development Company’s on-going development plans in Ancoats and New Islington. The planning team in Manchester also announced the appointment of Rachel Hopkins, who joins Deloitte Real Estate as a Graduate Planner having completed a Masters in Town and Regional Planning at the University of Sheffield.

In the capital projects advisory team, Chris Lewis has been named Senior Surveyor, and Greg Salisbury has been promoted to Surveyor for their consultancy services as part of the team’s work on a range of transformation projects for both the public and private sector.

In the valuation team, Chris Farnworth has been promoted to Surveyor following his involvement in a variety of projects both nationally and across the North-West.

The Leeds team at Deloitte Real Estate has also announced promotions following a strong year. Pete Gleave has been promoted to Assistant Director after leading on a number of planning applications including the St Albans development by Vita Student, which is set to deliver 376 student apartments in Leeds city centre, and the 14-storey Hampton by Hilton Hotel on Bridge Street.

The planning team has also announced the promotion of Ellen Sanderson-Clark to Senior Planner following her work on key projects throughout Yorkshire and the North West. Ellen also provides planning advice to Land Securities on their ongoing asset management of Trinity Leeds Shopping Centre. Ellen has also worked on the regeneration of Circle Square by Bruntwood and Select Property in Manchester.

Peter Wilkinson, Head of Deloitte Real Estate in the Regions, said: “It has been a brilliant period of activity for Deloitte Real Estate, in which we have helped to deliver some of the most significant schemes in the pipeline across the North.

“Our team’s technical and strategic expertise is unparalleled, and so it is with great pride that we announce these promotions in recognition of our commitment to providing an outstanding service to our clients and the wider region.”
