Nikal development director and board member John Moffat is set to join Manchester-based developer Capital & Centric, to advise on a number of its city centre regeneration schemes.
Moffat joined Nikal after graduating from the University of Reading in 2006. After working in the company across a range of projects and disciplines, he was appointed development director in April 2011.
At Capital & Centric, Moffat will work on its pipeline of schemes in both the residential and commercial sectors. He is due to leave Nikal by the end of May.
Capital & Centric is delivering a number of large-scale projects throughout Liverpool and Manchester, including the £250m Kampus in a joint venture with Henry Boot, the regeneration of the 200,000 sq ft Crusader Works warehouse complex, and the redevelopment of the former Littlewoods Film Studios.
Adam Higgins, co-founder of Capital & Centric, said: “Experienced development guys are hard to find at the moment so we’re delighted that John’s joining us. With 12 years of experience he knows how to put a deal together, sort out funding and deliver it. He’s developed both commercial and residential projects and so is perfect for Capital & Centric’s current city centre portfolio.”
Moffat said: “Having thoroughly enjoyed the last ten years at Nikal, I’ve decided that it’s time for a fresh challenge, and that’s exactly what Tim and Adam were offering.
“As a proud scouser, the idea of working on the kind of high profile, exciting developments Capital & Centric have in the pipeline, particularly in my home city was a strong draw.
“Despite being a young company they have achieved a great deal already, and I look forward to beginning this exciting new role next month.
“I’d like to extend my thanks to Nick, Steve, and the rest of the Nikal team, for throwing me in at the deep end and allowing me to learn through experience rather than tuition over the last decade.”
