Property consultancy DTZ has expanded its investment agency team covering the West of England with the appointment of Hollie Ruddle as an associate director.
Hollie, pictured, will provide disposal, acquisition and asset management advice across a wide range of commercial property as well as strategic analysis for real estate property companies, funds, institutions and individuals.
She joins DTZ from the Bristol office of rival Lambert Smith Hampton where her role involved investment sales, investment advisory, distressed debt transactions, development sales and development advisory.
DTZ’s Bristol-based investment agency has recently been involved in a number of high-profile deals in the South West including the acquisition on Portwall Place in Bristol on behalf of BlackRock for £51.5m and disposal the OPAL student accommodation portfolio for £245m to CLV.
Hollie will report to senior investment director Nick Allan, who said: “DTZ’s increasing pool of core clients are seeking our assistance as the demand for investment opportunities continues to increase. Our relationships with both occupiers and investors ensure that we are well placed to advise on a wide spectrum of investment opportunities.
“We are committed to delivering high-quality service to our clients and the appointment of Hollie to our growing team will help us achieve those objectives in a fast evolving market.”
