Appointments: Duo to oversee developer’s portfolio
Downing has appointed two senior facilities managers to help oversee its growing property portfolio.
Dave Matson was previously a senior facilities manager at CBRE where he managed the commercial portfolio and Liverpool team, and will oversee Downing’s Liverpool and London portfolios.
Meanwhile Alan Sothern joins the firm from engineering and technology solutions provider Spie, where he was overseeing the contract management of new build schools in Liverpool and Greater Manchester. He’ll focus on Downing’s residential properties.
John Clegg, head of property management at Downing which is now looking to bolster its commercial property team with an additional facilities manager, says: “These appointments demonstrate the impressive growth of Downing’s commercial property portfolio and, more importantly, support our long term ambition to continue to build on this success.”
