David Allen has already begun his new role leading the building team in the North for the international property consultancy.
Allen works as a partner in the firm’s Manchester office, which opened earlier this summer at 76 King Street. He started in his new post earlier this month.
Prior to working with Cluttons, Allen was the head of project management at Thomasons. While there, he led a team dedicated to replacing combustible cladding. He has also worked in senior positions at TFT, Aecom and Matthews & Goodman.
Robert Burke, partner and head of project and building consultancy at Cluttons, said: “With over 20 years’ experience largely spent in the North West, David brings his strong track record of building surveying and technical due diligence together with his specialist skills in monitoring surveying for funds, banks, and niche lenders which make him an extremely valuable addition to the team.”
Charlie Ardern is the head of the firm’s Manchester office. He said Allen’s appointment would help the company widen its offer in the region.
“Cluttons always works across the lifecycle to ensure clients get more than just transactional churn advice and this appointment further facilitates our ability to do just that,” Arden said. “We have several more appointments coming up in Manchester as part of our strategic mission to grow our northern hub and work more nationally as a company.”
