Patrizia hires commercial director

The manager of the 1.2m sq ft Birchwood Park in Warrington has appointed Martin O’Rourke as commercial director, to manage existing buildings across the estate.

O’Rourke joined from commercial property investment and asset management business Riddell TPS, where he managed the firm’s nationwide client portfolio from its Manchester office.

Martin O’Rourke said: “I’m looking forward to a new challenge at Birchwood Park. My previous roles have involved multiple site management across the UK so this is an exciting and refreshing opportunity to manage a single site of this scale and success.”

Jonathan Walsh, head of portfolio asset management at Patrizia, said: “Martin joins the team at an exciting time, with a number of developments recently completed and considerable interest from potential occupiers. Companies should expect more from their workplace, which is why we continue to invest and enhance the working environment at Birchwood Park. Our existing occupiers will benefit hugely from the wealth of expertise Martin brings to the role, and we are thrilled to have him on board.”

Patrizia is the manager of Birchwood Park, which is owned in a joint venture between the German fund and Oaktree Capital Management,
