AspinallVerdi grows Northern team

Tom Smith has joined as an associate director, while Ed Clothier has taken on the role of principal consultant at the regeneration specialist.

Smith and Clothier will work out of AspinallVerdi’s Leeds and Liverpool offices.

Smith comes to the chartered surveyor and town planner consultancy from Stockport Council and Stockport Mayoral Development Corporation, where he was a development manager working on the £250m Stockport 8, the 115,000 sq ft Cheadle Eco Business Park, and the all-age residential project St Thomas’ Gardens.

Prior to Stockport, Smith worked at CBRE for several years.

Clothier has more than 10 years of experience in the built environment, having grown an expertise in planning, viability, feasibility, and pre-construction. He is skilled in financial modelling and crafting development appraisals and economic impact assessments.

Atam Verdi, executive director of AspinallVerdi, said: “The strategic appointments of Tom and Ed bring further invaluable experience to our growing team of property regeneration professionals across our nationwide network of offices.

“Their insight and talent will benefit their colleagues and public and private sector clients throughout the North of England and further afield.”

In addition to offices in Leeds and Liverpool, Aspinall Verdi also operates out of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Birmingham, and London. The company has 27 staff. Recent Northern projects include BOXPARK in Liverpool, St George’s Gateway masterplan for Liverpool City Council, and Catterick Garrison Town Centre’s successful Levelling Up Fund bid.
