Euan Kellie Property Solutions has recruited Ellie Philcox from Deloitte Real Estate Manchester as associate director.
Philcox has over 10 years’ experience in planning and joins EKPS to assist with its growing workload, and especially to provide retail planning expertise.
Euan Kellie, who established the firm in 2009, said: “I am absolutely delighted that Ellie is joining us. It is an indication of the strength of the business – and the direction in which we are taking it – that we have been able to recruit someone of Ellie’s calibre and experience, and shows our continued commitment to providing the very highest level of consultancy advice to all of our clients.”
Philcox said: “I am hugely excited to be part of the dynamic planning team at EKPS, and look forward to bringing my experience to a range of projects in Greater Manchester and across the North West.”
EKPS recently secured planning permission for development at The Crescent in Salford, the second large-scale PRS development planned by Bet Fred owner, Fred Done, and the mixed-use Astley Point development in Wigan, also by one of Done’s companies.
The new hire adds to the ex-Deloitte/Drivers Jonas contingent at EKPS. Euan Kellie spent five years at Drivers Jonas before it was acquired by Deloitte in 2010. Kelly Paddick joined EKPS from Deloitte in 2013.
