CBRE in Leeds has further strengthened its Valuation team with the appointment of Simon Harrop as associate director.
Simon joins from Bruton Knowles where he was an Associate in the Valuation and Development and Planning Faculties and prior to that he worked in the Valuation team at CBRE in Dubai, within the strategic advisory team on projects throughout the Middle East. He worked on some of the region’s most significant real estate assets, representing many of the area’s banks, key developments and investors in the Middle East.
Bringing more than 15 years of real estate experience as a Chartered Surveyor to CBRE, Simon will work on a range of regular and one off commercial projects and will be a valuable addition to the growing Leeds team, providing advice for loan security, financial reporting, acquisitions and disposals.
Danny Latimer, also an Associate Director in the team, will now primarily focus on residential advice, working alongside director Olivia McClea, who joined in November 2019.
Michael Porter, senior director and head of the Leeds Valuation team, said: “We are delighted to welcome Simon back into the CBRE family. Simon has a wealth of experience in valuing a wide range of property types, including undertaking complex development appraisals for development assets.
“His knowledge and capabilities will add further strength to the team and also enable us to offer an enhanced residential service which is building very quickly since Olivia’s appointment.”
