HFD Group appoints property director

HFD Group has added to its senior team with the appointment of experienced property professional Michael McDowall.

McDowall joins as property director from London & Scottish Investments, where he spent five years as a senior asset manager. Previously, he held a variety of roles at real estate agencies in the UK and Australia.

 
With more than 15 years in property, McDowall has extensive UK-wide experience with lettings and marketing, as well as property and asset management. He will support the growth of HFD’s property development business, along with its market-leading commitment to sustainability and the expansion of its serviced-office offering.
 
Stephen Lewis, managing director of HFD Property Group, says: “HFD remains committed to growing our property development business, despite the impact of Covid-19. We believe there will be opportunities around what many are describing as the ‘new normal’ and we are well-placed to capture them – our touch-free enhancements to 177 Bothwell Street are just one example of that in practice.
 
“Michael has a great track record in property and will play a key role in supporting the sustainability of our developments, as well as the continued expansion of our serviced-office business. He is a great addition to our team at an important time.”
 
McDowall adds: “HFD Property Group is a well-known name and is working on some highly exciting projects, with an eye on the future in its commitments to sustainability and the use of technology. In my new role, I look forward to working with the HFD team, our occupiers, and the wider business community in Scotland and beyond.”
