Chris Stewart bulks up acquisitions team
Tim Currie (far left) joins as project director and brings 25 years’ experience in the delivery of projects across multiple industry sectors in the UK and across Europe. He worked in the capital projects team at CSRE, Goldman Sachs International.
Rory Stephens (above right) will help identify acquisition and development opportunities in key cities across the UK.
Following six years working with DTZ’s Scottish capital markets team Mr Stephens joined Lloyds Banking Group where he advised on the asset management and disposal of the bank’s non-core loan book across the UK and Ireland over three years. Most recently he worked with Manse, an Edinburgh based developer working in partnership with Palmer Capital.
Chris Stewart, chief executive of CSG, told Daily Business last month that the firm was being offered projects to work on, but it was being selective in those it took on.
He is now bulking up the team to look at acquisitions. He said: “As a specialist investor, developer and operator we are finding that new opportunities for regeneration projects, as well as office and leisure developments, are increasingly put our way.
“It is an exciting place to be and in order to maximise this position, I’m delighted to welcome both Rory and Tim to the team.
“High quality urban regeneration requires a unique set of skills and both Rory and Tim bring a wealth of experience and expertise to expand our capacity to put these complex projects together.
“There are still a number of key regeneration sites in Scotland’s cities – as well as across the UK. We aim to be selective, assess and mitigate any risks and apply our design expertise – and we’re set up to do just that.”
