Impetus from the government's northern powerhouse agenda has prompted a national commercial property consultancy to recruit a planning director.
Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH) has appointed Simon Turner (pictured) to its Manchester office. He joined from chartered surveyor Aspinall Verdi, where he spent three years as a regional director.
“Now is a time of significant opportunity in the north west; the market is strong, helped by the government’s commitment to the northern powerhouse agenda", he said.
Director of planning and development Adam Mirley said: "Simon's appointment demonstrates LSH’s commitment to planning and development work in Manchester."
Head of public sector in the north Richard Platt added: “His appointment comes at a time of significant growth for LSH in Manchester."
Earlier this year, the firm acquired retail property specialist Tushingham Moore and in September took on ten new graduates.
