Chris joined Naylors in September 2016 as Director within the Agency department specialising in occupational and investment agency across the Industrial & Logistics market.  Chris is a well-established Industrial & Logistics specialist in the region, having previously worked at Cushman & Wakefield’s Newcastle office (formerly DTZ) for 11 years, heading up its North East Industrial & Logistics team since 2013.

During his time at DTZ and then Cushman & Wakefield, Chris acted for a range of clients including; funds, developers, property companies, public sector clients and occupiers.

Chris has been involved in the marketing of high profile schemes such as Follingsby Park in Gateshead, Drum Estate in Chester Le Street, Tyne Tunnel Trading Estate in North Shields and The Waterfront at Newburn Riverside.   Over the years Chris has been very active in the ‘Big Shed’ market in the North East, for both vendor and occupier clients.  Indeed he secured the largest occupational deal in the North East in 2016, the sale of 271,000 sq ft in South Tyneside for a warehousing use.

Chris uses his extensive industrial occupier market knowledge when providing advice to a range of investor clients. Advice may relate to disposal, acquisition, development, funding, joint ventures, or asset planning/management.

In his free time Chris enjoys the occasional spot of social rugby, running and spending time with his young family.
