Ellandi appoints asset manager
Community shopping centre investor Ellandi has appointed Ruth Duffield as asset manager.
Duffield joins the asset management team of seven surveyors from Sovereign Centros where she worked for four years managing a range of centres including Willow Place and Corby Town Centre, Lion Walk and Telford Shopping Centre.
Managing director Morgan Garfield says: “Ellandi is proud to have built a team of talented individuals which continues to grow. As our first female asset manager, Ruth brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to Ellandi. In having Ruth join us, it continues to build the diverse team within Ellandi, which unusually, for a property company, is now a balanced split of 50/50 between men and women.”
Duffield previously worked at LaSalle Investment Management where she qualified.
Additionally, Alex Brooker has been promoted to head of asset management whilst Richard Hutchinson has been elevated to the position as associate director.
Property director Mark Robinson says: “Ruth’s appointment reflects our aim to continue building a team of the talented property professionals who are passionate about making a difference to communities across the UK.
“Alex’s promotion reflects his pivotal role in driving the performance of the business since he joined in 2013 and Richard’s, his ability to exceed investor’s expectation and build deep relationships with retailers.”
