We are continuing to expand with the appointment of former Colliers director Paul Scourfield to head a new Leeds office, which opens on 16th March 2015.

With over 25 years experience of the property industry, Paul worked at GVA and DTZ in London before moving to Colliers in Leeds where he spent 15 years managing and growing the firm's building consultancy teams across all of its regional offices.

Andy Williams, partner said: "Opening in Leeds forms part of our wider expansion programme and is a key strategic location for the business as we approach our 25th year.

"As investors increasingly look to the regions in search of greater returns than London and the south east, expanding our geographic reach is vital to meet the demands of our clients.

"We are advising a number of investment funds and occupiers, with national portfolios including property in Yorkshire and the North East. Having a presence in Leeds will enable us to service these clients more effectively through local knowledge and contacts, and will create opportunities for our business within the region.

"Paul brings a wealth of experience to the firm and expertise in several of our core areas, including technical due diligence, project management, development monitoring, contract administration and dilapidations. This combined with his leading reputation, will ensure that we can deliver a seamless service to our clients and build on our recent successes."

Paul added: "Powell Williams is a leading independent player with a strong track record for providing clear and concise advice, so I consider my skills, experience and client focus are well matched to the firm.

"My aim is to help develop the existing business and ensure that the firm is the consultant of choice for potential new clients seeking impartial and independent opinion.

"With an enviable client list and further plans for growth in the pipeline, it's an exciting time to join Powell Williams, so I'm looking forward to developing our presence across the region as well as growing the team over the next 12 months."

Our new Leeds office is based in Park House, Park Square West in the city centre.
