Paddy Brennan has been appointed National Head of Capital Markets. Paddy has over 20 years’ experience in the investment market and has advised on over £1 billion of investment transactions in the past decade, including major deals such as the sale of Frenchgate Shopping Centre in Doncaster and Fosse Retail Park near Leicester.
Paddy will be supported by Donall McCann, who will head up the capital market activities outside London as Head of UK Regional Capital Markets. Donall has transacted over £1 billion of deals during his career, with highlights including the acquisition and disposal of St James’ Shopping Centre in Edinburgh, totalling £350 million, within four months.
Ezra Nahome, CEO of Lambert Smith Hampton, said: “We are building the nation's most progressive commercial property agency, investing heavily and selectively in certain areas where we believe we can add the most value for clients. Capital markets is one of those areas and these appointments are key to our expansion plans.
“The capital markets team enjoyed an exceptional 2014, with a strong performance across the board and particularly in the non-performing loans arena. Our team has advised on over £25 billion of distressed debt portfolios to date and we are ideally placed to help clients make the most of the opportunities in this complicated market.
“I have no doubt that 2015 will be another extraordinary year of innovation and growth for the Capital Markets team and for Lambert Smith Hampton as a whole.”
