Industrial and Logistics
I joined Colliers International in 2012 for a years placement as part of my degree at Bristol UWE. Since completing my degree I re-joined the Bristol office in 2014, and qualified as a Chartered Surveyor the following year. I am now Head of the Industrial & Logistics team in Bristol, specialising in the disposal and acquisition of industrial premises in the South West and South Wales regions, and specialising in industrial development.
Working on behalf of Screwfix alongside my national colleagues, I have contributed to them achieving their target of opening 60 new stores for consecutive years from 2014 - 2020 and I am now the key client contact for the acquisition mandate.

Tom is an enthusiastic, competent and reliable surveyor. He has a clear understanding of the industrial market, and has provided us with sound advice on the marketing of our scheme at Apollo Park in Yate. Tom has subsequently managed to introduce a number of parties to the estate, and successfully negotiate some good terms for us.
Elliot Herbertson, Associate Director, DTZ Investors
We appointed Colliers, and subsequently Tom, as marketing agents on Beeches Industrial Estate in Yate when we purchased the estate in January 2016. I had previously dealt with Tom when he represented Screwfix when they acquired a unit on industrial estate in Cardiff also owned by Strathclyde Pension Fund, but he had not acted for DTZIM previously. Since then we appointed Tom as one of our marketing agents, and he has contributed significantly to the recent success of the estate with sound advice and, most importantly, lettings of three industrial/warehouse units within the past six months.
James Taylor, Acquisition Manager, Screwfix
Tom has worked on the Screwfix account now for several years. During this time, he has directly contributed to enabling us to achieve a stretching national acquisitions target of 60 trade counters per annum through; diligence, attention to detail and a proactive approach to his work. I have no doubt that he is always on the lookout for a new Screwfix opportunity and his tenacity has helped us convert opportunities that may have otherwise been missed.
