Glentrool Estates Group, the Yorkshire-based property development and investment company, has strengthened its talented team with two new senior appointments.
Sophie Antill joins Glentrool as an in-house lawyer. Sophie arrives at Glentrool from leading Leeds-based law firm DAC Beachcroft LLP.
Meanwhile Lauren Swiers is the company’s new Property Investment Manager, having previously worked for property consultancy Lambert Smith Hampton.
Sophie said: “I’m really excited to be Glentrool’s new In-house Counsel. I’ll be managing all the company’s legal work, liaising with external lawyers and reporting back to the directors.
“Having worked in private practice for nearly twenty years, the main challenge is adapting to the role of the client. It is fantastic opportunity to use my previous knowledge and experience to advise and guide Glentrool ensuring its legal transactions run smoothly and efficiently.
“I have already been made to feel really welcome by the whole team and I’m looking forward to helping the company expand and build on its excellent work to date.”
Lauren said: “I am delighted to be joining the Glentrool team and will be covering all aspects of asset management in order to facilitate and expand the property portfolio. Having previously spent most of my career advising and acting for tenants I am looking forward to the new opportunities and challenges that working from a landlord’s perspective will bring. The whole Glentrool team have really welcomed me and I’m excited for this new chapter.”
Jeremy Nolan, director of Glentrool, said: “These are very important appointments for Glentrool and we are delighted to welcome two such talented, hard-working and enthusiastic people to our team.
“Both Sophie and Lauren have arrived at Glentrool at a significant time in our development, as we look to build on our success at Sherburn2 and enhance and expand our commercial property portfolio.
“So, looking ahead, we will need the best possible legal advice and an in-house lawyer is best placed to provide this. Sophie is perfect for this challenging and satisfying role. Our developments and income producing portfolio across Yorkshire are long-term projects, which demand the fullest commitment from all us and Sophie’s role is critical to successful delivery.
“Meanwhile Lauren, who is very highly-regarded in the Yorkshire industrial property world, is a great addition to the company. I know that LSH are very sad to lose her, and their loss is very much our gain, as we strengthen our industrial and logistics team.”
