Sammy Jones has joined the Manchester office of GVA Grimley as senior surveyor from rival Cushman & Wakefield.
Jones will work with retained clients McDonald's and In'n'Out, a drive thru car servicing company. At Cushman & Wakefield, she worked with Hermes, Orange, Burger King and Next.
Jason Sibthorpe, executive director and head of retail at GVA Grimley, said: "Following a restructure of the retail business within GVA Grimley in 2008, it's encouraging that the team is again looking to expand and benefit from the activity and success of our retained clients. Sammy is a valuable addition to the national team and working alongside Camilla Topham, will give us a strong presence in the North."
