Adam White has moved from Manchester Airports Group to join CBRE as a senior director in its development consultancy team.
At MAG, where he was director of commercial and business development across the group’s £640m property portfolio, he led on the 5m sq ft Airport City project.
In his new role at CBRE he will lead on a number of major projects, overseeing agency, development consultancy and management services; these include ID Manchester, the University of Manchester’s proposed £1.5bn redevelopment of its North Campus. Prior to joining MAG, White previously worked for JLL.
John Ogden, managing director at CBRE Manchester, said: “The North West business continues to grow and we are delighted to welcome Adam on board with his wide ranging experience gained through direct, hands-on involvement across a variety of regionally significant projects.
“He has worked in both agency and large corporate/developer roles and as such will bring strategic insight to play a pivotal role in delivering major client projects. His appointment will further strengthen our land & development offering and add to the exceptional talent throughout our Northern business.”
White added: “After an immersive and enjoyable three years at MAG I’m proud to see Airport City now delivering on its vast potential. With the Airport City construction pipeline in safe hands, it’s time for me to take on new challenges and help to kick start the next wave of generationally significant schemes across the region.
“CBRE’s Manchester office is full of talented, hard-working and well-connected people and I’m really looking forward to leveraging the platform to rekindle old relationships and develop new ones.”
Earlier this year, MAG’s John McHugh also departed for CBRE, joining in a newly-created role of creative and place director within its property management team.
