youngsRPS strengthens business development arm with new appointment

Property consultants youngsRPS has appointed Chris Dixon as a business development consultant ahead to facilitate expansion across the North East and beyond.

Chris has been brought on board to raise the profile of youngsRPS’ commercial property services and brings with him a wealth of experience, having spent over 30 years at Sanderson Weatherall where he was responsible for running the firm’s asset management division.

Michael Blake, director at youngsRPS, said: “Bringing Chris into the fold is a strategic move for us as we drive our expansion plans forward at a regional and national level.

“As businesses adapt to a post-Brexit world, we’re fully prepared for unpredictability but, so far, the property market is showing great resilience and remains strong.

“Chris’ expertise, experience, and leadership qualities are an asset to youngsRPS and I’m excited about the opportunity that lies ahead.”

The company recently moved to a larger premises in Newcastle following its acquisition of Stanton Mortimer two years ago.

The new office on Grey Street brings the commercial and planning teams together, enabling the youngsRPS to attract more urban and inner-city opportunities.

Chris added: “It’s great to join youngsRPS and their progressive, motivated and driven team.

“I think I will bring a fresh approach to the way we secure business and I’m relishing the prospect of attracting new clients and growing our reputation among the city’s business community.”
