Avison Young bolsters Manchester health team 

Amanda Roddy has left Assura after more than 17 years to join AY as a director, following former colleague George Coulson who made the same move a couple of months earlier. 

Roddy is a specialist healthcare surveyor with 20 years of experience in the investment, development and management of commercial and healthcare property.  

She joined listed property firm Assura as senior investment manager in 2006 where she specialised in the acquisition of GP surgeries and community healthcare property. 

At Avison Young, Roddy’s role will involve a national remit with a focus on development and investment, including independent private healthcare.  

To start with, she will work on two large integrated care schemes in Bilston and Oxley with Wolverhampton Council, as well as two new council-promoted schemes in Kent. 

“I look forward to collaborating with the team’s many industry experts across primary and independent healthcare and senior living,” Roddy said. 

“I will be working nationally, bringing my many years of client-side experience to an advisory role, assisting Avison Young’s healthcare clients.” 

Coulson, who spent more than six years with Assura, joined AY’s Manchester health team in October. 

Frank Convery, principal of the health division at Avison Young’s Manchester office, said: “The health team has a long-established presence in the North and a strong client base. Amanda and George bring valuable assets to the company, and their appointments build on our successful track record in this sector. We continue to invest in Avison Young’s people, to strengthen and diversify our teams.  

“We look forward to boosting our renewed investment activity in the wider health sector in the first half of next year, demonstrating our commitment to our regional offering.”
