DTZ has expanded its regional retail agency team with the appointment of Will Thomas from Mason Owen & Partners as associate director.
Thomas joined Mason Owen in 2000, and over the last fourteen years has dealt with both retail and leisure clients across the North West.
Based in Manchester, Thomas will advise DTZ clients including Vodafone, Virgin Money and Robinson's Equestrian.
He will work on disposals for Manchester City Council, Manchester Metropolitan University and the Royal Bank of Scotland and NatWest.
John Keyes, head of the Manchester office of DTZ, said: "We see the retail sector as an ongoing area of opportunity. DTZ's commitment to growth in this sector allows us to continue to service our very strong client base at a local level, but with the strength of DTZ's national and international reputation as leaders in the retail market to support this growth."
