DTZ announces new look Leeds Industrial team

DTZ Leeds has announced a new look Industrial and Logistics Agency team covering the Yorkshire and Humberside region.

With over 11 years working in the industrial team for DTZ, the team will be led by Paul Mack. He will continue to develop the award winning team working alongside existing colleague Jacques Esterhuizen and new team member Daniel Mitchell, who joins the team from Colliers.

DTZ’s Yorkshire Industrial and Logistics Agency team are one of the market leaders in this sector and specialise in the acquisition, sale, letting, marketing and development of industrial, manufacturing, warehousing and trade counter premises. The team has won ‘Industrial Agency Team of the Year’ twice in the last three years. The team acts for a range of clients including private landlords, property developers, institutional landlords together with local and national occupiers. Some of the team’s recent key transactions include letting 667,000 sq ft to Debenhams in Sherburn in Elmet, letting 205,000 sq ft to Ellbee International in Barnsley and acquiring 147,000 sq ft in Wetherby on behalf of Lindam.

Paul Mack, Head of the Yorkshire Industrial and Logistics Team at DTZ, comments: “This team brings a combination of experience and enthusiasm to ensure all existing and new clients are given the highest level of service.

“The team specialises in working with landlords and property owners who need to find a new tenant or sell their existing premises. We also advise a number of occupier clients when looking to procure / relocate to new premises. With the economic recession now hopefully behind us and business indicators continuing to improve on a quarterly basis, we are excited by what is to come over the next few years.”

At DTZ’s Annual Outlook event Paul Mack commented: “2014 has seen market sentiment continue to improve in conjunction with an ever recovering UK and global economy. With almost no new buildings being constructed in the region, supply levels will continue to reduce across the Yorkshire region and in all size ranges. The occupational market however is still relatively fragile and there is no room for complacency when marketing or promoting vacant premises. It is more important than ever to receive the right advice as better terms are achievable in the right circumstances.”
