Commercial property consultancy Harris Lamb has expanded its network of offices with the opening of a site in Telford.
The business, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, launched the office at Stafford Park with two senior appointments.
Matthew Tilt, formerly a director at Lambert Smith Hampton in Birmingham, and Mark Linning, previously head of professional services at Bulleys, have joined the business at director level and will spearhead the Telford office.
Tilt said: “Mark and I both live in Telford and are excited to be opening the new Harris Lamb office in our hometown.
“The combination of our skillsets, local knowledge and the established Harris Lamb offering is an excellent platform for us to service clients right across the West Midlands conurbation.”
Linning added: “I already knew many of my new work colleagues, having previously acted on the other side of the fence on rent reviews and lease renewals.
“All sectors of the commercial property market have been impacted in one way or another by events over the last couple of years, and whether landlord or tenant, these events, together with the conflict in Ukraine and rise in living costs and inflation, will all affect rental and lease negotiations.
“Therefore, lease advisory is an area I will be looking to expand for the business, as well as delivering valuation and rating services to drive the business forward.”
The Telford site joins offices in Birmingham, Dudley, Worcester, Stoke-on-Trent and Nottingham.
Director Charles D’Auncey said: “Over the past three decades, our business has thrived as we’ve grown both our team and the number of services we offer, and we’re entering the next phase by developing it further.
“The board felt that a new Telford office was a natural progression for the business, complementing our other sites and providing an additional outlet for our diverse service offering.”
