Gerald Eve has appointed a new head of its Manchester office to spearhead its continued expansion in the North West as part of its regional growth plan.
Mark Walsh, previously Cushman & Wakefield’s managing partner for the North of England, joins Gerald Eve as partner and will be responsible for heading up the firm’s Manchester office. Mark brings a wealth of experience and his skills will supplement and seek to grow the services offered including business rates, building consultancy, lease advisory, valuation and planning and development activities across the region.
Ken Thurtell, Gerald Eve’s regional partner, said: “The regional offer has always been central to Gerald Eve’s way of working and that is why we have continued to invest in our regional offices in recent years. With more and more evidence of increased activity outside of the South-East of England and more demand from existing clients for regional coverage, we can see further opportunities for growth.”
Simon Rees, managing partner of Gerald Eve, added: “There are some exciting opportunities in the North West marketplace and Mark brings with him the skills and contacts to really capitalise on these. We look forward to working with him in delivering these opportunities and offering enhanced services to new and existing clients.”
Gerald Eve has a team of 20 currently working in the Manchester office, which forms part of a regional network alongside offices in Birmingham, Cardiff, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester and Milton Keynes.
