This week we announced the appointment of Paul Chatterjee as our new development director.
Paul joins the company’s Manchester office from Lynton Developments, where he was a director for seven years. There, Paul specialised in occupier-led development in the logistics and distribution sector, working with a number of major retailers and third-party logistics companies.
Paul started his career at Knight Frank working in the Yorkshire market before moving to industrial specialist Fuller Peiser. In 2003, Paul and two partners created a specialist industrial and distribution consultancy, C2G. Knight Frank acquired the consultancy in 2006 and Paul stayed as a partner there before joining Lynton in May 2009.
Paul joins existing development directors Simon Dixon and Dan Burn in Manchester and brings the total number of project facing directors across the company to nine.
Speaking about his decision to move, Paul commented: “db symmetry is a well-respected, active developer, with excellent access to equity, an impressive landbank and a strong track record in development. My 20 years’ experience in working with funds, developers and occupiers across the country will further add to what is already an impressive team.”
Director, Andrew Dickman, continued: “We are part way through a strategic growth programme, involving an increasing number of major sites across the country. To support this growth, we require a highly experienced and talented set of individuals, equipped with an in-depth knowledge of the market, who can bring complex sites forward and deliver. Paul and the wider team fit the high criteria we have set and we look forward to making further announcements on the growth of our team over the coming months.”
