Posted on November 12, 2020
Property regeneration consultants AspinallVerdi achieved a record 40 per cent increase in revenue as it continued to invest in the business with the opening of a new office, staff appointments and promotions and growth in client numbers nationwide.
Founded in 2009 by chairman Atam Verdi and managing director Ben Aspinall, the firm saw revenues in the past financial year rise from £1.18m to £1.67m.
Despite the past 12 months being impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, AspinallVerdi arrived in the North West by adding an office in Liverpool to those in Leeds and London and following a series of appointments saw its workforce rise to a total of 18.
The growing independent practice provides its specialist property development, regeneration and town planning consultancy services to a wide range of regional and national clients in the public and private sectors from Guernsey to the Scottish borders.
Chairman Atam 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”.
And managing director 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.”
The Liverpool office of AspinallVerdi opened in the autumn of 2019 with the appointment of director Andy Delaney, who previously also established and led the Liverpool office of real estate advisors Colliers International.
Andy’s colleagues at Liverpool include Jessica Mistry, who has been promoted to senior consultant.
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.
Meanwhile, Josh Wedge at Leeds and London-based James Bullough were both promoted to the role of principal consultant.
And Christopher Molyneux has recently joined the Leeds office as a consultant following the completion of his Masters in Real Estate at Glasgow University.
Atam commented: “I’d like to welcome Christopher as a key addition to the team and congratulate our colleagues on their well-deserved promotions. Witnessing the progression of their careers and their delivery of an outstanding service for our valued clients reflects their dedication and hard work.
“During the pandemic, we have transitioned seamlessly to working from home and the united efforts of our entire team allowed us to achieve the highest revenue in our 11-year history as an independent business, of which we are enormously proud.”
