Consultancy Christie & Co has appointed Nick Brown as regional director for the North West, following a decision to split its Northern division into two.
The new North West division will be based in Manchester, covering the whole of Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire, Cumbria and North Wales.
Brown first joined Christie & Co in 2014 as a negotiator on the corporate childcare team and has since supported a number of significant high profile transactions. He has also mentored and developed the childcare brokerage team, and was recently appointed as director and head of brokerage UK-wide for the firm, a role he will fulfil alongside his duties as regional director.
Brown said: “We have a fantastic base on which to build on with a great combination of experienced agents and newer members of the team. These are exciting times and all indications are that 2018 is going to be a very busy year.”
Chris Day, global managing director of Christie & Co, added: “Historically, the North West has been a top performing region at Christie & Co and the new structure will ensure we continue to provide expert service across the North and throughout the UK.”
The Manchester office is based in Acresfield, St Ann’s Square. Christie & Co operates across leisure, retail and specialist agency areas including pharmacies and other health and care-related fields.
