Addy ponders first projects under own name

Bill Addy, an experienced senior director at developers including Iliad and David McLean, has left the corporate world to set up his own company.

Addy left Liverpool-based Iliad in September and launched The Addy Consultancy the following month, to provide 'advice across all aspects of development'.

Bill AddyHe told Place: "You get to the time in life when you think 'should I do this for myself' and as I reached 30 years in the industry I thought now was a good time."

Prior to joining Iliad in 2006, Addy spent 15 years at David McLean, latterly as group business director.

Addy said he is currently working with Iliad on a consultancy basis to finish the £30m mixed-use Westgate Demonstrator Project in Rotherham and with Rotherham Council on another project.

He is also in talks with numerous undisclosed parties, including potential funding partners, with a view to delivering his own schemes.

"I will possibly go in to development if we can acquire the right sites. It would be on a smaller scale to what I'm used to. I'm working with people who have ready cash and equity and we have identified a number of sites in the North West."

Good luck Bill, can’t be many with the same level of experience or contacts in Liverpool. Looking forward to the first schemes.
