Genr8 in double hire

Manchester-based regeneration specialist Genr8 has hired two development managers in Lauren Gavaghan and Joel Chandler.

Gavaghan joins the developer from Peel Land & Property, where as a leasing executive she was responsible for leisure provision across Salford Quays, Gloucester Quays and Glasgow Harbour. Previously, she worked in the JLL’s retail & leisure agency team in Manchester.

Chandler began his career with Lambert Smith Hampton in Sheffield, before moving to Manchester to work with the Canal & Rivers Trust on its UK portfolio of regeneration and development projects. Most recently, he worked as a land buyer at McCarthy & Stone, focusing on the Greater Manchester region.

Mike Smith, partner at Genr8, said: “We’ve had a great few years here at Genr8 working on some landmark projects, including the regeneration of Rochdale Riverside and the development of Smithfield in Stoke-on-Trent.

“It’s an incredibly exciting time to join the company, with a number of fantastic pipeline opportunities, and we have no doubt that Lauren and Joel will make a significant contribution to the continued growth of the business.”

Genr8 Developments was founded in 2008 by John Early, Mike Smith and Richard Ingham. The business currently has projects with a construction value of £80m on site, with Rochdale Riverside scheduled for opening at Easter 2020.
