Darran Severn

“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 practise in West London focussing on office and industrial instructions within close proximity of Heathrow Airport.

I now form part of FHPs Retail and Leisure Team working from the Derby and Birmingham office.  I focus on High Street disposals and neighbourhood Shopping Centres throughout Derbyshire, Staffordshire and the West Midlands.

I also deal with the sale, leasing and acquisition of office and Industrial premises throughout Derbyshire.

Current Role

  • Retail and leisure leasing within Derby City Centre.  Recent deals include Card Factory, Dr Martens, Ponden Home, Pizza Hut, Bodega Cantina, The Brooklyn Social, Post House Derby, Doughnotts and Bunk.
  • Retail and leisure leasing throughout Derbyshire including key market town locations and popular neighbourhood shopping parades.
  • Retail and leisure leasing throughout Staffordshire and the West Midlands.
  • Retained on behalf of The Nottingham Doughnut Company for their regional expansion.
  • Industrial/office premises throughout Derbyshire and the M1 corridor.
  • Key clients include CWC Group, London & Cambridge Properties, Threadneedle, Central England, CEG and M7 Real Estate.


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.


“FHP were very easy to work with and were very helpful, providing access to the new site to allow us to prepare for the move in advance of our move in date and generally making the whole process stress free.”

Andy Kevins, Director of Yellow Rail

Right from the beginning when we put the sale out to tender we were impressed by your prompt attention and your professional presentation. We feel that you had a large input in helping us achieve the best possible sale price and indeed finally achieving an eventual completion within a very short timescale.

Terry Nash

FHP did a great job finding a tenant and progressing the legals through to completion. We look forward to dealing with FHP again in the future

I would like to complement FHP in particular Darran Severn, from their initial meeting to the end I was very impressed with the speed and professionalism which they dealt with the whole process and it was certainly a breath of fresh air.
