Geoff Gibson, Director in our Industrial & Logistics team, has been named Leicestershire’s Most Active Dealmaker of the Year for the second time in a prestigious property contest.
Geoff was recognised by the Estates Gazette’s online service – EGi - in their annual competition for the country’s most active agents. The Estates Gazette EGi assessment team gathered information regarding deals transacted in 2012, covering all sectors of the market including industrial, office, retail and leisure.
Major commercial property deals recognised
Geoff, who has worked for us for 25 years and is Head of our Leicester office, was involved in several deals including the 70,000 sq ft acquisition of mixed use premises at Braunstone Frith Industrial Estate for Babcock, and the letting of a 73,000 sq ft warehouse at Interlink, Bardon, to MTS Logistics Ltd.
Other deals included the letting of 33,000 sq ft at Harrowbrook Industrial Estate, Hinckley, on behalf of a major property company, and the letting of 30,000 sq ft at Boston Road Beaumont Leys for a private pension scheme.
Strength of LSH offering ensures results
Geoff said: “Although the market has seen signs of improvement, it remains tough, so to get this accolade for the second year running is especially pleasing. Our dedicated team of commercial property consultants know the local market intimately and together with our extensive national coverage, our clients benefit from unrivalled intel. It’s great to see our results receive such prestigious external recognition.”
