Dean Young has been appointed by Lambert Smith Hampton as director to lead its Manchester industrial agency.
Young, who founded his own specialist industrial agency, Young & Co, in 2009, will bring his client list and more than 30 years of experience in industrial property to LSH.
He has previously headed up North West industrial teams for Knight Frank, CBRE and Edward Rushton.
Young’s clients in the North West have included CBRE Global Investors, IPIF, M7 Real Estate, Aberdeen Asset Management, Norbert Dentressangle, Revelan and Bidvest.
In September, LSH’s former head of industrial, John Sullivan, left the company to join Colliers.
Young said: “Lambert Smith Hampton has a fantastic reputation for its work in the industrial sector, especially in the South East, and I look forward to developing its client base and elevating its standing in the industrial property market to a similar position in the North West region.”
