Expedite Group appoints new Managing Director
Expedite Group, the turnkey commercial property specialist, has appointed Nick Simmonds as Managing Director at Expedite Office as they continue their mission to give tenants advantage in a changing market.
In his new role, Simmonds will focus on providing occupiers with comprehensive guidance and solutions in relation to their commercial property requirements with particular focus on new ways of working the pandemic has presented.
Simmonds joins Expedite Group from The Workplace Company, where he was a Senior Partner and Head of Transaction, utilising his excellent landlord and tenant expertise to manage over 100 lease transactions per annum.
Simmonds’ expertise extends across the complete relocation process, helping tenants to find, design and create exciting workplaces for clients to then move in to.
Peter Bell, Chairman at Expedite Group, comments: “We are excited to welcome Nick to Expedite, whose expertise in the sector will reinforce our vision of pure and uncompromised tenant representation. With a strong track record of creating workplaces that support and underpin tenants’ businesses, Nick will work alongside clients to deliver a hospitality-style service where the customer is put first.”
Simmonds adds: “Throughout my career I’ve encountered tenants in disputes with their landlords that could have been avoided if the tenant had been properly represented at the start and throughout the lease acquisition process. I’m excited to join an organisation that fundamentally protects tenants at every juncture of a complex, transactional market where the customer is generally unfamiliar with the nuances of this industry. This is an opportunity for me to help put Expedite at forefront of a market which is crying out for change and to help our customers make confident and informed decisions in relation to office occupancy.”
