CBRE expands industrial team

CBRE has appointed Andrew Farrer as associate director in its industrial agency team in Manchester.

Farrer joined from Lambert Smith Hampton. Farrer previously worked in the South East in LSH's business agency team, before transferring to Manchester in 2014. Before LSH, he was an asset management surveyor at Hansteen Holdings.

The industrial team at CBRE is led by Paul Cook, who was promoted to head of the North West agency after Mike Walker's departure for Chancerygate. Farrer will work alongside Steve Capper and Darren Hill.

CBRE clients include Barclays, DB Symmetry, IDI Gazeley, Manchester Airports Group, Stoford, Argent and Threadneedle.

Paul Cook said: "The North West industrial market is rapidly picking up pace and we have several high profile instructions on both existing stock and opportunity sites on which we are handling high levels of interest as occupier confidence continues to grow. It is great to be further strengthening the team with Andrew's appointment and look forward to a busy year ahead."
