Bolton-based Landmark Investments Group has appointed David Lathwood, lead director of JLL in the North West, as non-executive chairman. Lathwood will continue to work full-time at JLL.
Lathwood joins Landmark Investments Group, the ground rent specialist, to provide strategic advice and guidance as the company expands its activity, particularly looking at new opportunities in the residential and commercial sectors.
Lathwood is a member of the JLL UK executive board, which he joined after the £200m acquisition of King Sturge where he was the managing partner of the UK regions.
Mark Hawthorn, director, Landmark Investments Group said: “Having worked with David over the years, his input and integrity have always proved invaluable to us. We are advanced with a number of projects which will create new parts of the group, which we expect to formally announce later in the year. David brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to Landmark and I know he will play an important role in the company as we move forward.”
Established in 2000, Landmark Investments Group’s main area of activity is the acquisition and management of residential and commercial ground rents. The activity covers Landmark’s own growing portfolio as well as deals for a number of retained clients.
