Matthew Gibbs has joined the global real estate company, bringing 28 years of expertise in property.

Gibbs previously worked as board director at DP9. Past projects include regeneration efforts in Earls Court, the London Aquatic Centre, and the grade-one listed Tobacco Dock. Gibbs has worked for a diverse roster of clients, including Asda, Shel, ITV and Capco.

“Matthew’s reputation in the industry precedes him and we are thrilled to have him on board,” said Jeremy Hinds, director and head of Savills planning division in the North.

“This is a significant appointment which complements our 18-strong planning team working across our Manchester and Leeds offices. His addition to the team creates a platform for our representation across the North to be further enhanced,” Hinds continued.

Gibbs joins Savills as the company expands its logistics sector work, according to Hinds. Current key schemes at Savills include the 1.2m sq ft Crewe industrial development from Tilstone Radway and a large scale allocation in Warrington from St Modwen.

“I very much look forward to this new challenge and am excited to be working with the Savills planning team, the largest across the country, and aiding its continued growth in the North of England,” Gibbs said.
