Warrington-based primary care property specialist Assura has appointed Patrick Lowther as associate director of property, joining its senior team from Savills.
Chartered surveyor Lowther has been hired to help Assura, which is a real estate investment trust, to further drive its investment strategy.

He will work closely with Assura’s property director Andrew Darke, who said: “We’re delighted to have Patrick joining us in this brand new role for the company. As our portfolio and development pipeline continue to grow at such a pace, his expertise, experience and international outlook will be integral to our long-term strategy.”
