“Working in agency I enjoy meeting new people, and wherever possible I try to find a solution that works for each individual”
I joined FHP in 2014 having previously worked for a surveying practice in West London focusing on office and industrial instructions within close proximity of Heathrow Airport.
I now form part of FHP’s Office and Industrial Team working from the Derby office where I focus on the sale, leasing and acquisition of office and Industrial premises throughout Derbyshire and the East Midlands. I also deal with retail and leisure properties, with a particular focus on Derby City Centre.
- Industrial and office leasing/sales throughout Derbyshire, the M1, A50 and A38 corridors.
- Advising clients on new industrial/warehouse development. Key schemes include Crown Park Derby, Forbes Park Long Eaton and Dove Way Uttoxeter.
- Acquisition advice for occupiers seeking new office and warehouse premises.
- Retail and leisure leasing within Derby City Centre and throughout Derbyshire. Recent deals include Domino’s, Ramsdens Financial, Card Factory, Dr Martens, Pizza Hut, Haart and Bunk.
- Retained on behalf of The Nottingham Doughnut Company for their regional expansion. Acquired new stores in Nottingham, Leicester, Lincoln and a new bakery in Nottingham.
- Key clients include Clowes Developments, PMW Property, Mileway, Columbia Threadneedle, Saint-Gobain, CEG, Catalyst Capital, London and Cambridge Properties and Rotherhill.
I enjoy most sports, especially golf in the summer and snowboarding in the winter, and where possible I try to get to the Alps or Rockies at least once a year.
My other interest lies with cars; I have always had an interest in motorsport and I like to keep up to date with Formula One, BTCC and Rallycross.
