Industrial asset management specialists NSM has appointed Sandy Ratcliffe as Property & Asset Manager, with immediate effect, to be based in their North West office in Warrington.

Sandy joins the fast-growing company which has secured a number of new assets to manage across Yorkshire and the North West, bringing its national portfolio under management up to £237.5m, so far this year.

The 25-year-old was previously with Legat Owen focusing on commercial lettings and sales before that working as a graduate surveyor for Liverpool-based Matthews & Goodman.
NSM is in a uniquely strong position, in addition to managing more than 4.3million sq. ft of industrial property across the north, the company also markets many of the properties, handles lettings and is overseeing the delivery of new builds which will ultimately come into the management portfolio.

It currently looks after 669 units nationally with a rent roll in excess of £14m.
NSM Managing Director Nicky Jones said: “Sandy is a great addition to the team and has settled in very quickly despite the current turbulent climate. His knowledge of the North West property market is sure to be a great asset for us.”

Sandy, who graduated from Reading University with a BSc Hons in Real Estate, added: “I’m thrilled to have joined NSM at a time when its client base is growing strongly alongside the interesting property portfolio it holds.”
