CRT Property Investments Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Coalfields Regeneration Trust, the only organisation dedicated to supporting the 5.7 million people living in former mining communities throughout the UK, has appointed Thomas Graham as Property and Assets Surveyor.
Previously a Graduate Surveyor for a property management company, Thomas will support the Investment and Development Director at this business, assisting with all property and asset management procedures across the company’s growing portfolio.
Thomas will also liaise with third party consultants and advisors in his new role on landlord and tenant matters, ranging from new lettings to lease renewals.
Thomas said: “It was the association to The Coalfields Regeneration Trust and the charity side of the business that first attracted me to the position. Seeing how we are able to benefit local communities with initiatives and funding, as well as promote sustainability for business in the coalfield areas really appealed to me.
“I am looking forward to getting to know all of the team and to better understanding our property investment portfolio. Knowing that I will be a part of an organisation that is focused on positive change makes the job all the more exciting.”
Investment and Development Director for CRT Property Investments, Shaun O’Brien, said: “As our property portfolio continues to expand, so does our need for talented individuals to join the team. It is imperative that we get the very best value from our assets and therefore maximise the impact we can have on coalfield communities.
“We would like to take this opportunity to welcome Thomas to the company. Given his previous industry experience, we are sure that he will settle in well and that he will see how the developments and properties we manage have both a direct and indirect impact on the coalfields and the wider scope of activity we deliver.”
