Paul Mills, who has joined OBI Property’s transactions and asset management team, will provide landlord and occupier clients with lease renewal, rent review and valuation expertise.
This is a new venture for OBI Property, in which Mills is the only member of staff working on the service.
Mills, who spent the last five years working for WT Gunson, will liaise with existing and new clients while focussing on the new business stream. He joined the transactions and asset management team of six earlier this month, based in Manchester city centre, and is the only registered valuer in the company.
During Mills’ time at WT Gunson, where he started as a graduate surveyor, he progressed to a chartered surveyor before becoming an associate partner in April this year. Mills worked in the professional services team providing landlord, tenant and valuation advice.
OBI’s associate director Richard Lace said: “It’s great to welcome Paul to OBI Property. We are always looking to build and strengthen the team and Paul’s diverse experience and knowledge in providing professional and lease advisory services means he brings a new skillset to the business.”
The real estate consultancy advises landlord and occupier clients including AO.com, NCC Group, Rentalcars.com and British Airways.
