Glenbrook has announced the appointment of Chris Lloyd as investment director, following the £6.8m disposal of The Beat in Liverpool, and the acquisition of the 43,000 sq ft Sliders industrial complex in Walton Summit, Bamber Bridge.
Lloyd joins from MCR Property Group, where he was an asset manager. He was previously a director at Cushman & Wakefield, formerly DTZ.
At Glenbrook, Lloyd has been appointed to develop the investment management side of the business, including fundraising, sourcing opportunities, asset management and disposals.
He said: “The property market is at an interesting point; the backdrop of political change both regionally and nationally is presenting some exciting challenges and the investment market is suffering from lack of business space stock for occupiers and investors.”
“I have always respected the way in which Glenbrook operate and believe that the company has the agility and the capability to react to these changing market dynamics and capitalise on investment opportunities in the market.”
Metis Real Estate advised Glenbrook on the disposal of The Beat, whilst Gerald Eve represented Custodian REIT.
Parkinson Real Estate advised Glenbrook on the Sliders acquisition. The scheme was acquired from Pinamar, represented by WHR. Sliders was bought for an undisclosed sum.
