Appointment of experienced partner boosts Carter Jonas’ regional industrial team

September 2, 2021

National property consultancy Carter Jonas’ Bristol-based South West industrial team has been strengthened with the arrival of Darren Letherby as a partner.

With a career spanning over more than 30 years, Darren, pictured, has advised a wide range of private and public sector property owners on the valuation of property portfolios and provides lease consultancy advice to landlords and tenants.  

Formerly at North & Letherby Chartered Surveyors, based near Severn Beach, Darren continues to represent The Bristol Port Company in all real estate, development and management matters affecting its 2,600-acre estate at Portbury, Avonmouth and Severnside.

He joins Carter Jonas’ dedicated South West industrial team, which includes Alison Williams, George Lynch and Ed Cawse.

Over the past 12 months, the team has driven several significant industrial transactions in the region, supporting occupiers, investors and developers in a sector transformed through the impacts of changing consumer habits, Covid and Brexit.

The team forms part of the firm’s national industrial offering, with specialists working across the UK from its commercial hub offices in Bristol, Leeds, Birmingham, Oxford, Cambridge and London.

Carter Jonas head of industrial Andrew Smith said: “The industrial and logistics sector continues to perform strongly in the South West, and Darren brings a wealth of expertise enhancing the in-depth knowledge and great work of our team.

“Carter Jonas is established as one of the largest firms operating in this market, and Darren’s appointment strengthens our ability to advise and service clients whilst demonstrating our commitment to growing our market share.”

Darren added: “Carter Jonas’ business in the region has gone from strength to strength and I will support its ambitions for further growth in the South West and nationally.

“The industrial team has a proven track record in areas that complement those in which I operate. I’m excited about the opportunities that lie ahead and look forward to getting started.”

Carter Jonas employs around 700 people across its network of 33 UK offices. In 2019 it acquired Bristol-based Williams Gunter Hardwick – giving it a base in Bristol for the first time.

The firm works across various sectors including residential, farms and estates, development land, offices, industrial and retail buildings.
