Prior to WHR becoming part of Avison Young Dan was one of its original founding partners back in 2004.  With nearly 20 years of capital markets experience and over 23 years in the commercial real estate industry he has been involved in some of the regions high profile investment transactions working with an eclectic mix of investment clients.   Typical deals have included identifying value-add opportunities, often becoming a key driver in providing strategies to enable value enhancement all the way through to concluding disposals post implementation. Dan’s clients range from indigenous high net worth investors and property developers through to international funds and overseas investors, who have benefitted from his expert local knowledge of the region.

Key investment transactions have included Stakehill Industrial Estate in Middleton for in excess of £46m, the acquisition of Towers Business Park in Didsbury for £46m and various city centre offices including 100 Barbirolli Square, Peter House and 76 King Street.

Over recent years Dan has also specialised in complex sale and leasebacks, creating joint-venture partnerships, development forward fundings and financial income strip transactions, providing advice to both banks and borrowers. 

Before helping to launch WHR, he was an Associate Director with Lambert Smith Hampton’s Capital Markets Team and previously held Surveyor positions with two other companies, Cotton Thompson Cole and Chesterton.
