Robertson hires development head to expand England business

The commercial development arm of one of the UK’s fastest growing infrastructure companies has added a new recruit to its already notable team in the North of England.

Robertson Property has appointed Dan White as Development Director, a move that is expected to attract new business from some of the UK’s largest institutional investors and occupiers.

Dan brings with him over 10 years’ of property and construction experience and intends to use his track record of securing and delivering major development projects as leverage to grow the property business for Robertson.

Commenting on his recent appointment, Dan said:

“I was drawn to Robertson because I like the fact that the business has a real entrepreneurial spirit which for me sits perfectly with the mind-set of a property developer. The fact that the group is able to provide a complete delivery solution is a major selling point to third party capital providers looking for a strong development partner.”

Robertson Property’s managing director Will Hean said:

“Over the last few years Dan has earned a strong reputation for structuring institutionally-funded development deals across the North of England. I am delighted to have him on board and look forward to growing the business with him as a valuable senior member of the team. During the last 12 months we have been able to secure a number of substantial development opportunities both in Scotland and The North of England including the Premier Inn at Whitley Bay and Dundee Waterfront.

Based in Robertson’s Gateshead office, Dan’s remit will see him collaborate with a variety of external consultants – architects, engineers, planners, agents and project leaders – to manage the lifecycle of property developments throughout the North of England.

The Hexham born father of two started his career in construction and property after completing a three-year graduate diploma in construction, gained while working for a regional contractor and has since held senior roles in some of the UK’s largest construction and property groups.
