Residential property and urban regeneration specialist, Sigma Capital Group has recruited Tom Shepherd from Gerald Eve to its Manchester office.
Following 10 years at Deloitte, Shepherd had been transferred to Gerald Eve earlier in the year as part of Gerald Eve’s acquisition of Deloitte Real Estate’s national investment team.
In his previous role as part of the national capital markets team, he was responsible for the acquisition and disposal of commercial land and investment assets, including the forward funding of several commercial and student schemes.
Shepherd’s new role will include managing the delivery of Sigma’s PRS portfolio and assisting with the appraising and structuring of new initiatives in the sector.
Shepherd said: “Sigma is an established leader in the PRS sector, an industry which I consider to be of significant importance considering the current housing shortage and limited affordability for first time buyers. I’m looking forward to being part of such a specialist team and applying my wealth of experience gained over the last 10 years.”
Sigma has offices in Manchester, Edinburgh and London. With the addition of Shepherd and 10 other new recruits this year, Sigma now employees 28 people nationwide, 12 of which are based at the Manchester office.
