More new appointments at Alder King
Property consultancy Alder King has made two key new appointments in its Bristol office to meet growing demand for its services.
Jack Appleton (pictured on the left) has joined the firm’s rapidly-expanding planning team as a Senior Planner. Jack has relocated to Bristol from London where he worked in both the public and private sector including Merton Council, Stiles Harold Williams and WS Planning Architecture.
Jack is initially focussing on Alder King’s growing number of student accommodation planning applications on behalf of regional and national developer clients. Alder King acts for a number of student providers and has recently secured over 1,000 beds of accommodation in Cardiff, 480 in Bristol and is providing planning advice on sites in Hatfield, Nottingham, Newcastle and Reading.
Chris Shellard (pictured right) has been appointed as a Property Manager in Alder King’s Management Services team after seven years with St Modwen Developments where he was Estates Supervisor, responsible for property and facilities management across St Modwen’s South West and Wales portfolio.
In his new role, Chris’s primary responsibility is the proactive property and asset management of Unite Students’ commercial property portfolio, maximising the income streams and capital values of its 130-plus retail and leisure units across the UK.
Martyn Jones, senior partner of Alder King, said: “Our on-going programme of strategic recruitment continues to attract high calibre staff, enabling us to service an increasing list of clients. Jack and Chris both bring valuable experience and expertise to two strong growth areas of our business and we’re delighted to welcome them to our team.”
Alder King is seeking to recruit a number of other professional and administrative staff in its Bristol, Cardiff and Gloucester offices. More information on these positions is available at www.alderking.com/about-us
