Bridge Industrial (“Bridge”), the US-based industrial real estate operating company and investment manager, has appointed Leigh Robinson as an Analyst within its UK team.
At Bridge, Leigh will assist in the underwriting and development process for industrial projects in Greater London and the West Midlands, joining London Partner Paul Hanley, Vice President Chris Doloughty and Project Delivery Head Steve Vickers.
Leigh joins from Avison Young where he was a Surveyor in the Capital Markets Group, responsible for providing specialist acquisition, disposal, and speculative funding advice to institutional, corporate and property company investor clients. His role included modelling complex, speculative developments through scenario and cash flow analysis.
Paul Hanley, Bridge’s London Partner, comments: “We are pleased to announce that Leigh has joined the UK team to assist in our rapid site acquisition programme and ongoing development plans. It is a busy time for us, and with a substantial capital to deploy we are continuing to acquire aggressively.”
Bridge launched its UK operations in November 2020 to pursue land and development opportunities throughout Greater London, the South East and the West Midlands, and has since announced its first three site acquisitions in Southall, Uxbridge, and Barking.
