Rob Sumner Sigma

Savills director goes client-side to Sigma

Residential and urban regeneration specialist Sigma Capital has hired Rob Sumner as investment director.

Sumner was a director in Savills’ Manchester development team for 10 years. He was responsible for generating value through the acquisition and disposal of residential assets, as well as forward funding large build-to-rent projects.

In his new role at Sigma, Sumner will oversee all residential investment decisions made by the group.

Graeme Hogg, chief operating officer at Sigma, said: “Rob is very well respected in the property industry and especially in the residential sector, and we are delighted to have attracted someone of his calibre to the company. Rob is sure to be a great asset to the business, as well as being incremental to Sigma’s PRS investment growth plans going forward.”

With additional appointments made in earlier in the year to the asset management, development and marketing teams, Sigma now employs 27 people in Manchester.
