Real estate investment and asset manager APAM has appointed Daniel Mead as its new head of shopping centre asset management with a target to provide focused recovery and repositioning for regional shopping centres.
Joining from Queensberry, Mead brings with him 12 years’ experience as a retail specialist asset manager, having worked with clients and investors including Aviva Investors, Westfield, Hammerson and The Crown Estate. During his four years at Queensberry, Mead’s portfolio included Friars Walk in Newport, The Crown Gate Centre in Worcester, and Liverpool’s The Metquarter.
Prior to Queensbury, he was principal surveyor at Donaldsons before joining BTWShiells as investment and asset management director. Upon taking the role, Mead predicted repositioning shopping centres including “introducing new uses such as health and leisure services or residential units” could achieve a recovery in trading volumes.
Simon Cooke, executive director at APAM, said: “The property industry as a whole has an obligation to enhance and rejuvenate our towns and cities across the UK. Refinancing regional shopping centres has become increasingly challenging and it is with this in mind that we are bringing to market a dedicated and highly-skilled capability to work through these assets.
“We are thrilled that Daniel is joining the APAM team and his targeted expertise will help to refinance regional town centres, providing long-term plans for shopping centre assets and advising the many stakeholders involved, including local authorities, banks and property owners.”
APAM focuses on working through distressed assets and this new appointment builds on its regional presence and strategic skill sets.
