Dulcie Bolland has been promoted to director within the firm’s lease advisory team at Avison Young’s Manchester office.

Dulcie originally joined GVA in 2012 as an associate, prior to the company’s recent merger with Avison Young, after previously working in the same role at BNP Paribas Real Estate. In her new role, she joins Shawn Ganguly to co-head the lease advisory team, advising clients on rent reviews, lease renewals and re-gears in all commercial property sectors across the North West, on behalf of landlords and tenants.

Dulcie’s promotion to director is in recognition of the high level of service that she has provided clients with over the last seven years.

Commenting on her promotion, Dulcie said: “It’s an exciting time at Avison Young and I’m delighted to now be a director within the newly expanded business.

“As one of two directors in the lease advisory team, we’ll be working closely to explore new opportunities and grow the team, whilst still delivering the high level of service that we’re known for.”

Chris Cheap said: “It’s crucial that we continue to invest in and support our employees, so that they not only meet Avison Young’s growth expectations as a business, but they also exceed their own goals as individuals.

“Dulcie’s promotion further demonstrates the strength and expertise that we have here at the Manchester office, and we look forward to seeing her continue to develop her career at Avison Young.”

Avison Young, the world’s fastest-growing, private and Principal-owned, global commercial real estate services firm, acquired the UK-based GVA, one of the UK’s leading real estate advisory businesses in February 2019.

Over the past 10 years, Avison Young has grown from 300 real estate professionals in 11 offices in Canada to, now, approximately 5,000 real estate professionals in 120 offices in 20 countries.
