We are delighted to announce the appointment of Damian Sumner who has joined our Retail Agency department this month as Partner.
A renowned name in the retail property world, Damian’s appointment is a significant development for us as we look to expand our Retail Agency Team.
After 8 years at JLL and 12 years before that at Churston Heard, Damian brings a wealth of knowledge to the firm, which will be invaluable in his new role.
During his time as Head of Retail Agency at JLL, Damian had responsibility for Shopping Centre Leasing, High Street Landlord and Retailer Services.
Landmark deals and projects during his career have included: working with Land Securities for 8 years on the delivery of Trinity Leeds, more recently their extension at White Rose Leeds and the ongoing redevelopment of The Moor in Sheffield over a period of 10 years, which is currently being delivered by Aberdeen Asset Management. At JLL, Damian was appointed by Cheshire West and Chester Council on the redevelopment of Chester, Northgate in conjunction with Rivington Land.
Damian has also acted for many major retailers including a longstanding relationship with Telefonica. His retail clients have included: Coop, Barclays, Blacks, Virgin Holidays and Lidl.
Following his departure from JLL, Damian was offered roles by many of the large corporate agencies. Having taken some time to consider his next move, he has chosen the opportunity we have presented to return to working closely with clients.
Congratulations to Damian – we are delighted to welcome you to the Team.
