Real estate advisory firm Gerald Eve has appointed Mark Walsh from Cushman & Wakefield as head of its Manchester office.
Walsh was previously Cushman & Wakefield's managing partner for the North of England, and joins Gerald Eve in a new role as partner responsible for heading up the firm's Manchester office. Part of Walsh's remit is to grow the services offered including business rates, building consultancy, lease advisory, valuation and planning and development activities across the region.
Last month Cushman & Wakefield appointed Ben Roberts from Torran Property Investment as head of the Manchester office, replacing Walsh.
Ken Thurtell, regional partner at Gerald Eve, said: "The regional offer has always been central to Gerald Eve's way of working and that is why we have continued to invest in our regional offices in recent years. With more and more evidence of increased activity outside of the South East of England and more demand from existing clients for regional coverage, we can see further opportunities for growth."
Gerald Eve has a team of 20 currently working in its Marsden Street office in Manchester, which forms part of a regional network alongside offices in Birmingham, Cardiff, Glasgow, Leeds and Milton Keynes.
