Dunlop Heywood, which split from property services group Erinaceous two years ago prior to the latter's collapse, has recruited two new staff in Manchester.
The rating and valuation specialist has hired Gwynne Furlong as UK Head of Investment & Development in Manchester. Furlong has previously held roles as property director for Spencer Holdings and Enterprise and managing director of Northern Trust Group.
Dunlop Heywood, which can trace its roots to 1832, has offices in Manchester, London, York and Leeds with a sister property investment company, Capgen Services, based in Abu Dhabi.
Claire Grindley also joins the Manchester office in the rates liability management department.
Stuart Hicks, managing director of Dunlop Heywood, said: "We welcomed a long list of new clients in March totalling more than £500,000 including: Dolce & Gabbana, Leeds Building Society, New River Capital, Four Seasons Health Care and Lend Lease Retail – among others.
"This list is growing week by week and our recruitment drive will continue for some time to come. However, we are not compromising on our core business objectives; to be the partner of choice for clients and employer of choice for staff – that won't change even as the size of the company does."
Hicks led a management buy-out from the beleaguered Erinaceous in early 2008 and formally relaunched Dunlop Heywood in May that year.
