GVA Grimley has appointed Grant Owens to its shopping centre management team based in Manchester.
Owens joins the company from DTZ in Leeds where he worked for three years in retail asset management.
He said: "With recent successes in the team and ever increasing profile of the schemes under management in the North West, I saw this as a great opportunity in bringing added value to the team."
Jacqueline Flatley, director of property management at GVA Grimley, added: "Grant has made an excellent addition to our ever expanding shopping centre management team, which now consists of a director, associate director and two recently qualified surveyors, based in Manchester, with dedicated property management accounts and shopping centre management teams at the various centres. Grant recently attained MRICS status and we are sure that he will continue to grow from strength to strength within the company."
