Bramall adds to boardroom ranks

Harrogate-based Bramall Properties has welcomed Jonathan Duck to its board as property director, after nine years with the firm.

Duck joins the board alongside founder and chairman Tony Bramall, the former motor trade entrepreneur; managing director Miles Chilton; and company secretary Alison Lockwood.

A vastly experienced property professional, Duck brings more than 35 years of industry experience to the role, having previously worked with the estates team at British Rail Property Board before joining Sanderson Weatherall where he spent 27 years.

As a board director at Bramall, he will take a more strategic role in managing the property portfolio, leading the company’s real estate management and asset management programme across sectors including industrial, retail, leisure, office and automotive.

Tony Bramall said: “We are delighted to welcome Jonathan to our board of directors. Over the last nine years he has made a considerable contribution to become a valued team member and a real asset to the business.

“Jonathan will be instrumental in helping us to realise maximum value for our portfolio of property assets and future acquisitions programme.  Indeed, we are seeking opportunities to invest in new properties and development projects including private and public securities through our Guernsey Investments finance third party property development fund.”

Bramall Group owns a diverse £300m portfolio of commercial real estate, arable land, forestry, property developments and financial securities. The group is family-owned.

The managed estate portfolio includes the 568,297 sq ft Hedon Road industrial estate in Hull, the 90,000 sq ft St James Retail Park in Knaresborough and 5/7 Lands Lane in Leeds.

Tenants for other investments include M&S in Harrogate, Mercedes Benz in Leeds, Bradford and Huddersfield, Premier Inn in Halifax and Hull, and Betty’s and Taylors Group in Knaresborough.
