Amy Haywood, new Senior Property and Asset Manager at Blue Marble Asset Management.

Birmingham-based Blue Marble Asset Management (Blue Marble) has appointed a new property and asset manager.

Amy Haywood joins the real estate asset management specialist as a Senior Property and Asset Manager from Lambert Smith Hampton where she worked in a business development role for the Birmingham and East Midlands offices.

At Blue Marble Ms Haywood will help to asset manage the company’s growing national portfolio of industrial, office and mixed-used investment properties on behalf of its clients.  She will also advise on new leases and lease extensions, and help with Blue Marble’s business development programme.

Blue Marble Chief Executive Tim Matthews says: “Amy’s knowledge and experience will play a vital role in the continuing growth of Blue Marble, as we continue to add to client numbers and to expand our clients’ property portfolios.  She will work with the rest of the team to maximise value and returns on our clients’ commercial property investments, working to an agreed business plan on each one.”

Ms Haywood says: “I am looking forward to putting my property and business skills and knowledge to good use to contribute to the strong growth already enjoyed by Blue Marble.  I share their philosophy of intelligently investing their clients’ money, rather than simply spending it, and of managing assets strategically.”

Based in Birmingham’s Colmore Business District, Blue Marble Asset Management is a real estate asset management specialist which presently has more than £60 million of property assets under management.  It works for a select range of clients including investment businesses, high net worth individuals, trusts and family offices.  Its business is based on taking a holistic view of each of its property investments.

In the last four months Blue Marble has acquired a 65,000 sq ft distribution warehouse in Coventry and a 23,000 sq ft industrial unit in Glasshoughton, West Yorkshire, both in off market deals and successfully negotiated new leases with tenants at a 20,000 sq ft industrial unit in Seaham, County Durham, and at a 13,500 sq ft industrial unit in Nottingham.
