Town Centre Securities adds latest Ziff to the ranks

Jacob Ziff joins the family-run development and investment company as associate director of investment.

Jacobs joined from the investment specialist Clifton Agency and will focus on creating a strategy for property investment and to assist managing the existing TCS property portfolio.

TCS has assets of £300m, develops close to transport hubs in Manchester, Leeds, London and Glasgow. The business was founded 60 years ago by Jacob’s grandfather and is run by his father Edward.

After graduating from the University of Leeds in 2019, Jacob joined West End-based CWM, where he worked in retail agency and lease restructuring. Jacob moved across to Clifton Agency, where he focused on UK-wide commercial real estate capital markets. Last year, Jacob also completed a master’s degree in real estate investment & finance and the IPF diploma at the University of Reading.

Jacob said: “I am honoured to follow in the footsteps of my family by joining TCS. It’s a tremendous opportunity to continue the growth and success of the business and I am eager to leverage my skills and experience to create a new investment strategy and enhance the existing property portfolio.”

Edward Ziff, chairman and chief executive of TCS, said: “Together with all my colleagues, we are thrilled to welcome Jacob into the business. He has a strong background in real estate investment and agency, and coupled with his dedication to professional development, I am confident that he will play a key role in managing and enhancing our property portfolio.

“Welcoming Jacob into the business, who joins my oldest son Ben and daughter Charlotte-Daisy, marks the next phase in taking TCS forward. Sixty-five years ago, my father laid the foundation for a business that has since become a stalwart in the property industry. With Jacob’s arrival and his experience, we are confident that he will contribute significantly to the ongoing success of TCS and help shape the future of the company.”
