Deborah has been promoted to the senior leadership team of Capita’s Real Estate and Infrastructure business from her previous role as head of GL Hearn in Manchester. She will be responsible for over 500 people with capabilities spanning project management, architecture, design and engineering. She brings over 30 years’ experience working in housing, real estate and regeneration and has delivered some of the most complex real estate projects across the North West and the UK.

Our clients are keen to access the wide range of skills they need easily and flexibly. We are creating a much closer working relationship across our teams to respond to these requests. I am looking forward to working with Deborah and all the leadership team to develop this important aspect of our business.”
Deborah added: “I am really excited to be leading such an important part of Capita. The team has a strong reputation for delivering great real estate projects and I look forward to leading the team to our next phase of growth. Clients tell me they want a team on the ground that provides a coordinated range of disciplines to meet their needs and has a reputation for excellence. I am confident our new team will build on our excellent reputation in advisory and planning and bring together our world class skills in project and cost management and deliver the highest quality of service for our clients.”
