LCP, one of the UK’s leading property investment and management companies, has taken on a new asset manager as it continues to grow its commercial property portfolio.
Jonathan Cooper joins the Kingswinford-based company from GVA Birmingham where he was a senior surveyor in the property management consultancy.
At LCP, Jonathan, who is MRICS qualified, will take on the role of lease advisory surveyor and will focus on the burgeoning industrial portfolio, looking at all aspects of strategic property matters, including acquisitions, lease renewals, rent reviews, and re-gearing.
He has 14 years’ experience in the commercial property sector, which also includes three years at national property consultancy Lambert Smith Hampton in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
“LCP is going through a very exciting period and is demonstrating a very proactive approach towards investment,” said Jonathan. “When the opportunity arose to work for such a major property investor and to be involved in all property matters on the portfolio, I was keen to play a role.”
Andrew Preston, industrial portfolio manager, said: “In the past two years, we have increased our portfolio and are actively looking to acquire new sites over the next 12 months. Recruiting new staff is crucial to achieving that aim and we are pleased to welcome Jonathan to the industrial team.”
