Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH) has added to its growing Retail Team in the Midlands region with the appointment of Senior Surveyor, George Xydias.
George completes a three-strong Birmingham-based team alongside Midlands Head of Retail, Richard Jones, and Graduate Surveyor, Guy Sankey. He will predominantly cover the West and East Midlands, as well as South Wales, Northampton and parts of Cambridgeshire.
Having graduated Reading University in 2004, George’s career has seen him hold a number of surveying roles. Most recently he has been working at Pennycuick Collins in Birmingham, where he led the Agency Team.
He has a proven track record of acquiring and developing a range of successful retail projects across the Midlands. Clients have included Deutsche Bank, the Express & Star Pension Fund, Securitas and the Bank of Cyprus.
Team expansion comes after period of significant growth for LSH
The expansion of the Retail Team comes during a period of significant growth for LSH, which earlier this year acquired ES Group and retail specialists Tushingham Moore.
George said: “I’m really happy to have joined LSH and to be working in a region I know very well. It’s clearly an exciting time for the company, and the expansion of the team reflects what a dynamic and growing sector retail is.
“Whether it’s high street, shopping centre, food and beverage, roadside or neighbourhood property , there is a real demand in the central region for the kind of high quality consultancy that LSH is synonymous with.”
Richard Jones said: “Bringing George into our team in the Midlands is an important step for LSH. The company has always been committed to ensuring we have the best talent working with us. We’ve recently expanded the team and its geographical scope and George will be a major part of the continued growth going forward.”
