West Midlands property consultancy Burley Browne is targeting expansion of its property management portfolio after appointing experienced surveyor Faryal Sheikh to lead the division.
Faryal has joined the Sutton Coldfield-based company where she will work alongside commercial property landlords across the industrial, retail and office sectors.
She joins Burley Browne as senior surveyor as it begins a new era. Equity partners David Hemming and James Merrick have each acquired a 50% stake in the business and have ambitious plans to expand its operations.
Faryal said: “It’s really exciting to be joining Burley Browne at the start of a great new era. I’ve known the company for many years and it has an excellent reputation as a leading regional agent.
“In my new role I’m looking forward to driving the property management division forward and growing our portfolio of properties significantly. Offering added value to landlords is a key element in our growth and development strategy.
“We are targeting new, great quality instructions with good landlords and tenants, while continuing to provide outstanding support for the clients we already act for.”
James Merrick said: “Faryal is a breath of fresh air and I am sure she is going to be a huge success in her new role. Expanding our property management portfolio across the region, and further afield, is a major focus for us. We will be providing landlords with added value and exceptional service as we grow the team, led by Faryal.”
Faryal, from Oldbury, Birmingham, gained a degree in property and construction at Birmingham City University.
She joins from Bruton Knowles, where she managed a varied portfolio on both the occupier and client side. At CBRE, she worked in an occupier role with Barclays Bank. She then moved to the asset management team, acting on behalf of Global Investors, managing properties in London and Birmingham.
