Property and investment company appoints two new asset managers
National property and investment company LCP has appointed two new asset managers as it bolsters its industrial and retail teams.
Ceri Markham and Derek Croal both join LCP’s head office in Pensnett, West Midlands. Ceri joins the industrial team from Cushman and Wakefield, where she was a senior surveyor in its asset services team. She has previously worked at Jaguar Land Rover and SEGRO.
Derek has joined the retail team from Walsall-based European Food Brokers Ltd, where he was group estates manager, leading the in-house property team in the management of the group’s 110 trading and 125 investment properties.
Nick Burgess, LCP managing director, said: “We’re gearing up for a very busy and productive 2018, with ambitious acquisitions targets, so we are delighted to welcome Ceri and Derek, who bring many years of first-class experience in their respective fields to LCP.”
Ceri, who enjoys travelling to South Africa where she has family, said: “Coming to LCP was an attractive prospect because of its ambitious plans for growth and because of its unqualified commitment to tenants. I’m very much looking forward to making my contribution to the firm.”
Sportive cyclist Derek added: “I’m very pleased to join LCP at a time of growth. It has expanded its retail portfolio significantly in recent years and its values in looking after the communities in which it acquires properties really appealed to me.”
