GVA has appointed Gordon Hewling, Senior Director and Head of its North East Building team, as its new Newcastle head of office as part of a strategic change programme designed to put the most talented people into leadership positions.
Gordon is involved with a broad range of major projects in the north east including the redevelopment of Newton Aycliffe and Ashington Town centres. He is also acting as development adviser and project manager on the 12 acre East Pilgrim Street Regeneration in Newcastle, a mixed use scheme extending from Swan House roundabout to Northumberland Street, which is a key development site in the city centre, bringing forward new public realm and high quality commercial buildings.
He also oversees projects delivering over 1,000 student beds, 750 build to rent residential units and over 1m square feet of industrial development, as well as providing strategic advice to local authorities and public sector bodies on their existing and future portfolios and investment opportunities.
Gordon commented;” Our Newcastle office holds a strong position in the market, providing strategic real estate advice in both the public and private sectors. It delivered an excellent performance during 2017 so it is an exciting time to be taking over as head of the GVA Newcastle office as we continue to drive the office forward to maximise its full potential in the region.”
The office has been strengthened recently by the appointment of Shaun Cuggy and Anna Greenwood to the respective PDR and PMC teams.
