LSH expands investment team

National commercial property consultancy Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH) has expanded its successful Birmingham-based investment team with the appointment of a new associate director.

Adam Ramshaw joins LSH from Knight Frank’s Birmingham office where he worked for five years in the investment and consultancy teams. He began his training in 1998 at Gerald Eve in London before moving back to Birmingham in 2003.

In his new role he will join LSH’s investment team serving Birmingham and the Midlands. He will also work with LSH’s expanding Capital Markets team in London, which works with investors across the UK. He will provide investment brokerage and advice to LSH’s client base.

The investment team has had considerable success in recent months. LSH deals have included the acquisition of a nationwide £60.5 million industrial portfolio. LSH acted for Scottish Widows Investment Partnership and asset managers Centurion Properties to acquire the St Martins industrial portfolio which included a major multi-let industrial estate in Oldbury and two sites in Minworth.

Other significant Midlands LSH deals include a 180,000 sq ft industrial warehouse at Hams Hall let to Tradeteam Ltd and bought for Legal and General for £10.61 million.

Head of LSH’s Birmingham office, Ian Kibble said, “I am confident that through his national and Birmingham contacts Adam will enable LSH to make further significant inroads into the capital markets sector. He will be joining a team with a successful track record and I am sure he will further enhance our capabilities in the investment field.”
He is married, and enjoys playing football and golf
