Property consultancy AspinallVerdi is reporting a 40% rise in annual revenues to £1.67m after opening a new base in Liverpool.
The regeneration specialist hired former Colliers International director Andy Delaney to head up the Liverpool office, adding its existing operations in Leeds and London. The firm was founded in 2009 by chairman Atam Verdi and managing director Ben Aspinall.
AspinallVerdi, which employs 18 people, provides property development, regeneration and town planning consultancy services to a range of regional and national clients in the public and private sectors.
It opened its Liverpool base in the autumn of 2019. Mr Delaney’s colleagues in the city include Jessica Mistry, who has been promoted to senior consultant.
Verdi said: “During the past 12 months we have completed a range of projects which include business cases for securing growth and town centres’ funding, plan viability and employment land studies, strategic housing sites and property acquisitions and disposals.
“We continue to assist our clients to unlock development and enable growth despite these challenging times.”
Other promotions to senior consultant were Rachel Squire and Matthew Olive, based at the Leeds and London offices respectively while London-based Lawrence Owho was promoted to consultant.
Josh Wedge at Leeds and London-based James Bullough were both promoted to the role of principal consultant. Christopher Molyneux has recently joined the Leeds office as a consultant following the completion of his Masters in Real Estate at Glasgow University.
Ben Aspinall added: “Our achievement of record revenue in an obviously difficult year is testament to our team and clients for their continued commitment and hard work. We remain determined to grow our business and to ensure we can continue to provide high levels of service to our clients.”
