Property firm expands its Manchester office

New appointments at Eddisons

Property consultant Eddisons has expanded its Manchester office with a series of appointments and a newly created senior valuations role.

Director Phil Deakin has been promoted to the newly created role of head of valuations for the north and will head the valuations team across the firm’s Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds offices.

Steve Tasker has joined Eddisons as an associate director in the valuations team. Joining the firm from the Manchester office of property consultant Bruton Knowles, Tasker was previously an associate director with Jones Lang La Salle and GVA. A specialist in the alternatives and licenced leisure markets, he is a RICS-registered valuer and will provide valuations advice across Eddisons’ broad client base.

Meanwhile Thomas Weinmann has joined Eddisons as an associate director in the firm’s growing building and project consultancy team, which recently secured £15m of Government-funded building and improvement projects for schools across the UK.

He was previously a senior chartered building surveyor at Cassidy + Ashton Architects in Chester. His extensive education sector experience includes schools projects and work for academic clients such as the University of Liverpool.

Another new recruit to Eddisons’ building and project consultancy team is building surveyor Ritson Carr who has recently graduated from Northumbria University with a first class degree in building surveying.

Megan Roe has also joined the Manchester valuations team as a graduate, after transferring from the firm’s agency team in Bradford. She will continue to train towards her RICS professional APC qualification.

Phil Deakin said: “Our valuations, and building and project consultancy teams are substantial contributors to the wider Eddisons business and they continue to grow following some significant new business wins.

“These include securing a place on the Government’s Homes England property services panel and our work with academy trusts, where we recently secured the funding for much needed new building and improvement projects for schools.”

He added: “We are really pleased to be welcoming new talented professionals to the Manchester office, which will enable us to build on the growth Eddisons has seen over the last year, with further recruitment plans in the pipeline. These appointments reflect our commitment to expanding our range of high quality expertise and services to our clients.”

Eddisons is a multi-disciplinary firm of chartered surveyors established in 1844. Headquartered in Leeds, the firm operates across the UK.
