Capita has appointed Gareth Belsham as director of building consultancy.
Gareth, who has over 20 years of building surveying and project management experience, joins the company from EC Harris where he was a senior member of the asset investment and finance team carrying out due diligence for investment clients. Prior to that he worked at King Sturge (now JLL), and Atkins.
Gareth has advised on over £1 billion worth of property transactions in the last 18 months including some very large commercial and residential portfolio investment acquisitions across the UK and central London.
As part of Capita’s real estate division, Gareth will be responsible for developing internal and external business opportunities and managing relationships with ‘Blue Chip’ investment clients, including funds and property companies such as Axa and LaSalle Investment Management. He will also be developing existing relationships with corporate occupiers such as Bupa and National Grid.
Gareth will also be focussing on developing Capita’s new technical due diligence service which will provide strategic advice in support of clients’ transactional activities including property acquisitions and disposals.
