The group has hired Greg Fee as part of its team in the North, focussing on development opportunities in Merseyside and Lancashire.
Fee joins from fellow forecourt operator and developer MRH, and will primarily be based across the extent of the M62 corridor, reporting to UK property director David Myers.
Euro Garages, headquartered in Blackburn, has expanded its presence in the North West in the last 12 months, including plans for a petrol station, two drive-thru restaurants, and a coffee shop on land off Junction 1 of the M58 near Maghull.
It is also planning to open sites at Ion’s Earlsfield development at Junction 2 of the M57, and at Hollinwood Junction near Oldham. The company currently operates 3,800 sites across the UK.
Myers said: “It is a sign of our group’s intent to bolster our property acquisition team when other companies appear to be retracting in the UK market. Our appetite for new property development opportunities remains strong across a region we feel very comfortable operating in.
“Greg has a diverse career history which will complement our team, and crucially first-hand experience of operating and working within the fuel retail sector. This appointment is a commitment to the UK market in a territory of strategic importance to EG. We are delighted to welcome him on board.”
