LCP APPOINTS NEW ASSET MANAGER03/04/2018
LCP has appointed a new asset manager. Simon Eatough joins the business from CBRE, where he had worked for six years and was associate director.
He will be based at The Pensnett Estate, Kingswinford, West Midlands, and will manage a portfolio, focusing mainly on retail and industrial sectors in the South Yorkshire area.
He said: “LCP has demonstrated that it is a national company with real ambition, which is exciting, yet its horizontal management structure allows quick decision making, which means we have the freedom to react swiftly to opportunities.
“I’m looking forward to playing a key role in the team, helping to improve rents within the portfolio and spotting development opportunities.”
Nick Burgess, LCP managing director, said: “We’ve put in place very ambitious plans for investment over the next few years and are seeking to add considerably to our already burgeoning portfolio. Simon’s solid asset management experience complements the existing team’s excellent credentials and we are looking forward to working with him.”
At the beginning of the year, The LCP group of companies unveiled plans for growth in 2017, following a £98 million investment in its commercial property portfolio last year. It is looking to invest a further £250 million this year in both retail and industrial properties.
