Gerald Eve has strengthened its Midlands industrial team with the appointment of John Sambrooks as Partner.
John arrives from Cushman & Wakefield, where he was a Partner, as part of Gerald Eve’s ongoing investment in its national industrial advisory team, and its Birmingham office in particular. John is one of the leading agents operating in the Midlands industrial market and brings 20 years’ experience of the sector, with previous clients including Unipart, Dow, ERIKS UK, Mucklow, Canmoor, and DTZ Investors
The Midlands industrial and logistics market has been one of the best-performing property sectors of recent times. Gerald Eve’s Prime Logistics research indicates that take-up in the region was 14.92 million sq ft in 2018, with generally rising rents reflecting a level of demand that is outstripping supply.
Jon Ryan-Gill, partner and head of Gerald Eve’s Birmingham office, said: “Gerald Eve has a longstanding strength in the Midlands industrial sector, and John’s arrival will both cement this position and help deliver an even better level of service and advice to clients. As a firm Gerald Eve has always sought to invest in talent – an approach that is increasingly important as the Midlands economy continues to grow – and the recent growth we have seen makes this an exciting time for the Birmingham team.”
