Queensberry, has announced it has restructured its commercial team and promoted Daniel Mead, previously Senior Asset Manager, to Director of Asset Management. To support the continued growth of this area of the business, the real estate company has also appointed Lorna O’Neil as Asset Manager.

As Director of this new area of the business and following the restructure, Daniel will be leading the strategy for Queensberry’s assets, including Friars Walk and The Kingsway Centre in Newport and the Metquarter in Liverpool. Dan and Lorna will also oversee projects where Queensberry advises clients as Asset Manager such as The CrownGate Centre in Worcester on behalf of The Crown Estate.

Having joined from Cushman & Wakefield, where she was part of the Shopping Centre Investment and Asset Management teams, Lorna has a wealth of recent experience working with institutional clients.

Paul Sargent, Chief Executive and Co-founder of Queensberry, commented:

The hard work, wide range of experience and the enthusiasm of Queensberry’s team is what differentiates us from our competitors. With Daniel’s extended experience and proven track record to date, he is the ideal person to take this area of our business forward. We are also glad to welcome Lorna into our 18 strong, and growing, team and we are sure she will be a great addition to our business.”

Daniel Mead, Director of Asset Management, Queensberry, added:

This last year has been a very exciting time for Queensberry, following a number of landmark project wins including Sheffield Retail Quarter and Better Barnsley. With Lorna’s support, I am looking forward to growing this area of the business further and continuing to deliver results for both our assets and clients.”

Queensberry has recently been appointed by Sheffield City Council as development partner for the Sheffield Retail Quarter scheme and Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council has appointed the company to deliver the Better Barnsley project. The news follows Queensberry’s purchase of Metquarter, Liverpool, earlier this year and the launch of the Corn Exchange Manchester last autumn.
