DTZ expands Regional Public Sector team

DTZ, a UGL company has announced the expansion of its regional Public Sector Consultancy team following the appointment of Claire Evans as Senior Consultant.

Claire joins DTZ’s 10-strong public sector team which provides strategic corporate real estate, development consultancy and planning advice to the public sector across the South West. She joins from Jones Lang LaSalle where she gained five years experience within its Public Sector Consultancy team providing consultancy advice to predominantly local government clients with a particular focus on strategic asset management and the implementation of asset management strategies.

DTZ’s Public Sector Consultancy team operates within five sectors: local authorities, education, health, emergency services and central government. Claire will be responsible for strategic corporate real estate advice including: operational accommodation strategies, multi-asset reviews, property and FM solutions and regulated procurement procedures.

Laura Stamboulieh, Regional Director of Corporate Real Estate Consulting said: “DTZ’s Public Sector Consultancy team services a range of clients requiring a strategic approach to property-related issues. The expansion of our team will allow us to dedicate an enhanced level of resource to help our clients meet the challenging targets that have been placed upon them through the identification of cost-cutting and value optimisation solutions from within their property resource.”

Tim Davis, Senior Director and Head of DTZ’s Bristol office said: “Following an unsettling 18 months, post-2010 Comprehensive Spending Review, we are delighted to make this high quality recruitment to maintain a first-rate service to our clients. The expansion of the team demonstrates DTZ’s continued commitment to the Public Sector and reinforces our position as a leading advisor across the five sub-sectors.”

Claire’s appointment follows the addition of James Blundell to DTZ’s Bristol Consulting team who joined the office as a Senior Surveyor earlier this year.
