East Mids commercial property agent expands into Birmingham
Firm takes city centre office and unveils new hire

Commercial property agent Innes England has expanded its Midlands operation with a move to a new base in Birmingham and a new head of office appointment.

Chartered surveyor Adam Rock has been named the director of the venture, which sees the firm expand beyond its existing offices in Nottingham, Derby and Leicester.

Rock, who is based at Cornwall Buildings, was previously with chartered surveyors Bruton Knowles for 12 years.

Innes England will lead with professional services before introducing other specialisms such as agency and building management.

Rock said: “It’s an exciting opportunity – it’s like a fresh page and I’m looking forward to building up the business here. The focus is on the valuation side but we will also be bolstering with some of our other divisions.

“Birmingham is a really dynamic and thriving city – and the amount of investment that has gone into it over the last ten years is incredible. It has attracted many world-class businesses and has massively invested in infrastructure. There are so many new developments and of course there’s HS2 as well. It’s a really good news story that the city is on the up.”

Innes England managing director Matt Hannah said: “We are proud of our work across the East Midlands and a move to Birmingham seemed a natural progression.

“We already have a number of clients who have a regional office in the city and have carried out a number of successful sales transactions.

“Birmingham is a very exciting market which has been attracting global occupiers who already have a London base, as well as being at the heart of the Midlands Engine economic partnership.”
