Gerald Eve has announced the appointment of Stuart Vendy from Cunnane Town Planning as a partner in its Manchester office to head up the planning team.
Vendy has ten years' experience and will be primarily focused on the residential and retail sectors, as well as renewable energy projects. His past clients included Tesco, David Wilson Homes, Scarborough Football Club, Tiger Developments, a number of national restaurant chains and various private landowners.
His appointment closely follows that of Michael Robinson who joins Gerald Eve's Manchester office from CB Richard Ellis on 18 August to lead the firm's national building consultancy team.
Mike Roocroft, partner and head of Gerald Eve's 20-strong Manchester office, said: "These appointments are part of the firm's continuing plans to expand its presence in the North West, both by including new services such as building consultancy and occupational and investment agency, and by extending our existing offer. We are making these positive moves against the market trend, demonstrating our faith in the North West and our confidence in prospects for new business."
