Abid Jaffry has been named as the new head of the LSH office in Spinningfields, Manchester.
Jaffry replaces Roger Tunnicliffe, who takes on a consultancy role in business development.
Jaffry only joined LSH as an investment director in September 2011, after being made redundant from Knight Frank, where he was a partner. He will work with David Smith, regional director of LSH, and the North regional board.
Jaffry said: "I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to head up the Manchester team and to help Lambert Smith Hampton grow a region that is strategically important to the business."
Smith added: "With over 10 years' investment and capital markets experience Abid is ideally placed to lead our team in the North West. He has been involved in a number of major acquisitions, sales and funding projects and has excellent knowledge of the market.
A key function of his new role will be to capitalise on market opportunities and to spearhead the continued growth of LSH in the North West region."
