Property consultancy CBRE has welcomed six new surveyors to its team.
Stelios Demetriou joins the firm’s lease consultancy team from BNP Paribas Real Estate.
The senior surveyor will advise clients such as HSBC and Santander on landlord and tenant matters, including rent reviews and lease renewals, across the East and West Midlands.
Surveyor Edward Forrester has been appointed to CBRE’s property and asset management department. He will manage office, industrial and retail parks around the Midlands for CB Richard Ellis Investors, the global real estate management firm, and other pension funds and institutional clients. He moves from King Sturge in Cardiff. He is joined by Gregg Morgan, ex Birmingham Property Services.
Donna Pickersgill joins the development consultancy and regeneration team from GVA. She will be responsible for development reports and viability appraisals for both public and private sector clients. She previously worked for RegenCo, the former regeneration company for Sandwell.
Donna replaces Jan Losch, who has moved across to CBRE’s valuation team.
Two surveyors have been recruited to CBRE’s rating team. David Bullimore moves from BNP Paribas Real Estate, to take on the role of senior surveyor helping corporate occupiers and investors cut the cost of their business rates. He is joined by new rating administrator Stephanie Cartwright.
Martin Guest, managing director of CBRE in Birmingham, said: “These appointments will bolster our professional teams across the board and takes our headcount in the city to more than 90”.
