Manchester-based retail property specialist, Tushingham Moore, has appointed Andrea George to its agency team as partner.
George left Knight Frank's Manchester office recently when it decided to consolidate UK retail leasing services to London. She joined Knight Frank in June 2008 through the acquisition of rival Markham Vaughan Gillingham.
David Moore, founder of Tushingham Moore, said: "We believe that Andrea will be a great asset to the business and is the perfect candidate to give a completely new dimension to our existing offering through her strong reputation and intimate knowledge of the fashion and leisure market."
George, who will specialise in high-end fashion and leisure lettings, added: "This is an exciting opportunity and I am confident that combining both my own and Tushingham Moore's high profile and long standing client relationships will provide a successful basis for new and continued growth. I look forward to the new challenges ahead."
