Alec Williams has joined Edwards & Co as director of building consultancy, leaving a director-level role at Capita to add to the Manchester firm’s agency and investment teams.
Williams has over 17 years’ experience in the North West market. He joined NB Real Estate from Donaldsons in 2006 to establish a team of building surveyors. NB was subsequently acquired and rebranded by Capita in 2010.
Clients Williams has acted for include Royal London Asset Management, LaSalle Investment Management, AXA REIM, Paloma Capital, Live Nation and Aberdeen Asset Management.
Andrew Timms, director and head of the transactional team at Edwards & Co, said: “Alec’s appointment is a fantastic opportunity for Edwards & Co to expand the business and building consultancy is a natural fit with our current offering for clients. This is something we have wanted to do for some time but finding the right person was key”
Williams added: “Establishing a building consultancy specialism within Edwards & Co is a fantastic opportunity which will broaden the current expertise on offer and will be a major benefit to the existing client base.”
