Colliers International UK has announced a change in leadership in the North West with the appointment of Dominic Pozzoni as its new Head of Manchester, as Peter Gallagher takes on a client consultancy role, concentrating on some of their larger development projects.
Colliers’ Manchester office comprises 60 employees representing a huge variety of clients and some of the most influential schemes in the region. Dominic will commence his leadership role on 1 January 2021.
“Colliers is a market leader in the north west and this in part is because of Peter’s tireless efforts and we are grateful that he will remain with us providing expert advice to property owners and investors,” said Tony Horrell, Colliers’ CEO UK & Ireland. “Looking to the future, I have no doubt that Dom will continue to drive growth, inspire the team and deliver service excellence in his new role. His well-established reputation and embodiment of all our company’s core values make him a natural fit to succeed Peter and accelerate our success in Manchester, one of the most dynamic and rapidly expanding city’s in Europe.”
Dominic joined Colliers’ Manchester in 2016 as head of the offices team, bringing with him a proven track record of letting high value schemes alongside an unrivalled capability for identifying ‘needle-moving’ development and investment opportunities. Prior to that he spent 12 years at PAG, largely focussed on the development of mixed-use schemes, incorporating residential and hotel elements into the mix. During his career he has led the development and consultancy of some of the North West’s largest mixed-use schemes, as well as advising the UK’s biggest property developers and key landowners throughout the north west, which has resulted in a robust track record of delivering performance for Colliers clients in a competitive marketplace.
“It will be a privilege to lead the team in Manchester, who are a talented group of people and among the best in our industry, advising high profile clients throughout the Northwest on all sectors including capital markets, offices, logistics, hotels, residential, property management, valuation, development and project consultancy.” said Pozzoni. “I look forward to continuing on the trajectory Peter has established and leading Colliers in the north west into the future.”
The move sees Peter, who has held the role of Head of Manchester for two years, become a consultant with Colliers.
During his career, Peter has been involved in many major commercial development projects that have re-shaped the city of Manchester and has built many enduring, successful, and profitable relationships with major UK developers, propcos, institutions, and funds that have created an impressive pipeline of new development projects.
