Leading commercial property developer, Stoford has announced a senior promotion as part of its strategic growth plans.
Angus Huntley, who began his career as Stoford’s first graduate placement more than a decade ago, has been appointed as Director within the firm’s development management team, based at Ludgate Hill in Birmingham city centre.
Angus is responsible for sourcing new pre-let and site opportunities, as well as managing Stoford’s existing development pipeline as it continues to capitalise on the UK’s high performing industrial property market.
He has delivered schemes for Stoford’s joint venture partners including TPG Real Estate, Bridges Fund Management, Logicor/Blackstone, Oxenwood and Royal London Asset Management. His role as a key contact with these existing partners will continue as part of the business's expansion.
Angus first joined Stoford as a Graduate Surveyor on a six-month placement in 2011, before moving to GBR Phoenix Beard as an Office Agent. He re-joined the company from Savills in 2016, where he worked in the Birmingham investment team, advising clients including M&G, Irish Life Investment Managers and IM Properties.
As a Development Manager for Stoford, Angus has delivered a combined speculative industrial pipeline of c.850,000 sq ft in the last three years, including schemes at Pantheon Park in Wolverhampton, Icon Manchester Airport, Icon Harlow, Liberty Park Widnes and Stone Cross Park in Warrington. He has also transacted over one million sq ft of pre-lets with a combined value of £235 million, including developments for Jaguar Land Rover, The Hut Group, Alpha LSG and Amazon.
Stoford Joint Managing Director, Dan Gallagher, said: “Angus has a proven ability to deliver new site opportunities and handle complex deals. His appointment adds further weight to the expertise within Stoford and comes on the back of the recent additions of Andy Hartwright as Land Director and Simon Ganley as Project Manager. We are in a strong position and are ideally placed to seize on the opportunities available to us.
”Angus Huntley, said: “I’m very pleased to have been appointed to this new role, it’s especially satisfying having joined as the company’s first graduate placement and been promoted through the business. Stoford is enjoying a period of exciting growth and I look forward to continuing to strengthen the pre-let and speculative delivery side of the business, working with new and existing partners.”
