Property consultant Eddisons has boosted its Yorkshire and Manchester teams with two new appointments and three promotions.
In the firm’s Manchester valuations division, Philip Deakin has been appointed as director. Joining the firm from property agent JLL, where he specialised in mid-to-large commercial property assets, Philip has acted on behalf of all major UK lenders and for large property companies and funds including Hunter Real Estate Investment Management, ING, Valad, Peel Holdings and HIMOR. He has valued some high profile North West properties, among them Port Salford, Carrington Business Park, Ship Canal House and Exchange Quay.
Also joining Eddisons is Ian Appleby, who has spent the past 40 years at RBS in Eddisons’ Leeds office, Ian’s newly created role will be to support and develop the firm’s bank relationships across the north.
Within the firm, Steven Jones has been promoted to director in Eddisons’ agency division, while associate director David Cran moves from Manchester to Leeds to help drive bank and private client valuation work across Yorkshire. Kristan Love has also been promoted to associate director in Eddisons’ property management team in Manchester.
“These are exciting times for Eddisons and this raft of new hires and promotions is indicative of our appetite for further growth in the wake of recent acquisitions, including the Pugh & Co auction business in June,” said Richard Roe, managing director of Eddisons.
“I’m really pleased to welcome Phil Deakin and Ian Appleby, who are both high profile individuals and very well known in their fields, and it’s satisfying to see Eddisons attracting senior staff from some big firms.”
Richard added: “Steve Jones’ promotion to director reflects the recent success of our agency division and the high volume of deals that we are completing on behalf of a range of clients, from high net worth individuals, occupiers, and plcs to regional property companies, banks and investors.
