Carter Towler has strengthened its growing Investment and Valuation departments with the appointments of Jacques Esterhuizen and Brett Harrison.
Jacques, who has over 10 years’ experience in the investment and industrial markets, has been appointed as a Director and will head up Carter Towler’s Investment team.
Ian Greenwood, Carter Towler’s Managing Director commented: “We have worked with Jacques on deals many times before and have wanted him on our side for a while now. I am delighted he has chosen to join us, he has established an excellent reputation and I know he will make a fantastic contribution to expanding the reach of our investment services.”
Previously an Associate Director with Cushman & Wakefield, Jacques has been instrumental in a number of high profile investment deals including an NHS Sale & Lease back of 121 staff resident apartments on behalf of AEW, a 200,000 sq ft distribution warehouse on the Bradford Euroway Industrial Estate for a local authority and the Yorkshire BBC Headquarters in Leeds on behalf of Columbia Threadneedle.
“We have also appointed Brett Harrison as an Associate in our Valuation team,” added Ian Greenwood. “Brett has gathered some very valuable commercial, retail and leisure sector valuation experience working for Colliers and Jones Lang La Salle which we are looking forward to maximising.
“In the last six months we have successfully concluded a number of large investment deals with leading institutional investors and pension funds. These two new appointments will help us ensure that we continue to provide our clients with highly effective investment and valuation services.”
