Development specialist to join firm’s Birmingham office as a partner.
Full-service property consultancy Gerald Eve has strengthened its Midlands development advisory capabilities with the appointment of Sam Skinner MRICS as a partner.
Based at the firm’s Birmingham office, Sam will advise clients on a range of strategic development issues, focusing on greenfield-led schemes for both residential and employment uses, together with planning policy and financial viability. He joins from Fisher German, where he was an associate director, and has a decade’s experience within the Midlands property market.
Alex Gillington, partner at Gerald Eve in the development team, said: “The strength of the Midlands development market makes this a crucial time for clients to have access to the very best in strategic consultancy, and the addition of Sam to our Birmingham team will enhance the service and advice we are able to offer.”
Sam’s arrival comes at a time of expansion for Gerald Eve’s Birmingham office, with the firm widening and deepening its offer across a range of services. Industrial specialist John Sambrooks joined as partner in March, while other recent arrivals – including relocations from Gerald Eve’s London office – have strengthened capital markets and lease consultancy capabilities.
Jon Ryan-Gill, head of Gerald Eve’s Birmingham office, added: “Gerald Eve’s national network has always been central to our client offer, with Birmingham and the wider Midlands region a key market for the firm. The investments we have made in talent underline our commitment to offering clients in the region the very best in strategic advice and expertise.”
