Property regeneration consultants AspinallVerdi have made a second round of senior appointments nationwide following ongoing growth in client numbers and a strengthening pipeline of post-pandemic work.
The expanding independent provider of property regeneration consultancy to clients in the public and private sectors takes its total workforce to 24 following the appointments at its headquarters in Leeds and regional offices in Birmingham and Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
Hayley Miles joins AspinallVerdi as associate director in the Midlands with more than 20 years of experience in development consulting and will be based at the firm’s new Birmingham office.
A chartered surveyor and registered valuer, Hayley spent 12 years in the public sector and eight in the private sector focused on property, strategic land development and regeneration with JLL and Thomas Lister.
Hayley has recently been advising clients on major regeneration projects throughout the West Midlands, including Future High Street Fund and Towns Fund bids for Worcester City Council, Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council and Telford and Wrekin Council.
Hayley’s sector knowledge and expertise adds value to the range of services AspinallVerdi offers to clients in the region and will help the firm to expand its client base.
Hayley will work with executive director Parminder Dosanjh to support the growth of the business throughout the Midlands.
Helen Reardon has rejoined AspinallVerdi as an associate director at its head office in Leeds. Following two years with the firm as a senior consultant, Helen has spent the past six years teaching BSc and MSc Real Estate students at Sheffield Hallam University. She also has more than 10 years of consultancy experience in planning, development and regeneration at firms including Ekosgen, GVA (Avison Young) and King Sturge.
Alasdair Ritchie has joined director Brett Devenish at the Newcastle-upon-Tyne office of the firm as a consultant after working as a graduate development surveyor for Advance Northumberland and prior to that role, Taylor Wimpey. He completed his undergraduate degree in Planning and Development Surveying at Northumbria University.
Meanwhile, Richard Grocott and Jessica Lowe have successfully completed their MSc masters degrees in real estate at Liverpool John Moores University and become permanent members of staff at the Liverpool office of AspinallVerdi headed by director Andy Delaney.
This latest round of appointments follows four senior arrivals at the Leeds and London offices of AspinallVerdi in the spring of 2021.
Chairman Atam Verdi said: “AspinallVerdi have enjoyed an expanding client base and range in services with great prospects for the remainder of 2021 and 2022, allowing us to create further career opportunities by recruiting these latest members of staff.
“Managing director Ben Aspinall and I welcome them all as invaluable additions to our growing team as we continue to provide best-in-class levels of service to our clients in the public and private sectors.”
