Merseyside estate agency, Venmore, has recruited former CBRE senior director Malcolm Irving to head up its new commercial division, Venmore, Farnham & Lea.
Irving commented: "I am looking forward for the opportunity to develop the commercial arm of the Venmore group. Whilst it is a challenging time in the commercial market, it is also an important time for owner investors and occupiers to ensure that their property investments are producing optimal return."
Irving is also a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and Member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.
Irving Rice, the agency he set up with Nick Rice, was acquired by CBRE in 2008. Both have since left.
