Leading business space agent joins Manchester Office
27 Jun, 2005, Manchester
Cushman & Wakefield Healey & Baker's drive to become a leading full service firm in Manchester received a major boost today with the appointment of Tony Bray, the former director of agency and development at Dunlop Haywards who joins C&W/H&B in Manchester as head of business space. The announcement follows two other major appointments; Mark Walsh, formerly of Dunlop Haywards and Andrew Pickett, an independent consultant, who will head the landlord tenant division and a brand new national restaurants division respectively. They join Retail specialist Paul Nichols who was appointed earlier this year to manage and grow the office.
Tony Bray moves to C&W/H&B's Manchester office from Dunlop Haywards where he joined 2001 and was Director of Agency & Development responsible for a team of 10. Prior to Dunlop Haywards, Tony worked at Weather Green and Smith.
The appointments come after C&W/H&B's announcement earlier this year that it was to open a Manchester office in response to the firm’s growth in activity in the region. The firm also has regional UK offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow and the Thames Valley as well as a City of London office and its European headquarters in London's West End. An announcement on the location of the Manchester office is imminent.
Adrian Hill, head of business space at C&W/H&B said "We have set out to establish a leading full service practice in Manchester. It is one of the most exciting and dynamic cities in Europe and more and more of our clients are looking at it as a location for business be it for office space, industrial space or retail units. This appointment of three key people is the second major step in the development of the office following the appointment of Paul Nichols to head the operation."
C&W/H&B will offer a full range of services to clients from the Manchester office and is currently recruiting in all key sectors including retail, investment, business space and professional services.
