Tom Dawson

Leading commercial real estate investor and developer Network Space has appointed Tom Dawson as Investment Director, strengthening its investment proposition regionally.

Tom has moved client-side following six years within Knight Frank’s capital markets’ team where he focused on the acquisition and disposal of business space investments across the North.

Working alongside Martin Mellor, Managing Director of Network Space Investments, Tom joins with a mandate to grow the existing Network Space industrial portfolio in an extremely active and competitive market. Its acquisition strategy is focused on value-add industrial property (up to £15 million), targeting well-located, single and multi-let assets across the North West, Yorkshire and Midlands.

In the last 12 months Network Space has acquired several high-profile investments and development opportunities, totalling £40million. These included a number of off-market deals across Yorkshire and the North West.

Martin Mellor commented: “We are delighted to welcome Tom into the business, he has an excellent track record in the industry and I look forward to us working together as we continue to our growth”.

Tom added: “This is an exciting new challenge. Network Space are a well-established and respected property company with ambitious plans to grow their industrial portfolio. I’m eager to capitalise on my market knowledge and industry contacts to unlock new acquisitions and drive our value-add strategy.”
