Colliers International’s Investment Property Management (IPM) team is continuing to go from strength to strength as they welcome five new recruits to the Birmingham office.

With over 15 years’ experience in property management, Liz Steele joins Colliers’ retail management team. Previously a Director at Cushman & Wakefield, Liz specialises in shopping centre management and brings particular expertise in retailer engagement, environmental awareness and health & safety compliance, amongst other retail property management related matters.

Laura Dumitru joins Colliers from Seven Capital where she was responsible for residential management and more recently Savills with experience in property management, sales, customers service and account management, Laura joins the retail management team as an Estate Assistant and will work with the wider team to support the needs of their retail clients across the country.

Meanwhile, Sami Miah and Oliver Taylor join Colliers’ IPM team as Estates Assistant and Property Assistant, respectively. Sami previously spent time working as a Property Administrator for Cushman & Wakefield, whilst Oliver joins the team as part of his sandwich year from Nottingham University, where he is studying a Bsc in Real Estate . Finally, Madelaine Royston has joined the team as a Social Media and Marketing Administrator to support on retail and office management instructions.

Martyn Edwards, head of IPM in Birmingham for Colliers International said: “Our team has steadily grown over the past few years from single figures to a department that is now 17-strong. The team boasts a great mix of experience and talent and I have no doubt that these latest recruits will only strengthen our already winning formula which has seen us win more than a substantial amount of new business in 2017 and 2018.

From the management of entire property portfolios, such as Stratford Town Trust’s commercial estate to overseeing that activities of Birmingham Wholesale Markets’ state of the art facility at The Hub in Witton, Colliers’ IPM team provides general property management services to a wide variety of clients from our Birmingham base. This is bolstered by the expertise of the specialised retail and shopping centre management teams which manages the property needs of an increasing number of schemes across the UK for well known institutions and property companies.

Growth in the IPM team coincides with two further personnel changes in Colliers’ Birmingham office. Lynsey Ledgister has relocated from the IPM, where she was team secretary to become Receptionist for the office as whole. Meanwhile, Nathan Henry has relocated to Birmingham from Colliers’ London IT Services team as Deskside Support Engineer servicing the Birmingham office whilst also having a national remit.
