The Birmingham office of global property consultancy CBRE has made two senior promotions.
Ed Gamble and Ashley Hancox have stepped up to become executive directors at the firm's base in Temple Row.
Mr Gamble, who works in the capital markets team, has more than 15 years' experience in advising clients on property investment in the industrial, office and retail sectors.
Since joining from JLL in 2011, he has acted on some of the city's biggest property deals including advising CBRE Global Investors on the acquisition of Seven, Eight and Ten Brindleyplace for £131 million.
He also acquired Priory and Temple Court for £80 million on behalf of Legal & General and advised IM Properties on the sale of the Euro Car Parts unit at Birch Coppice.
Mr Hancox has been head of office agency at CBRE in Birmingham since 2008 when he joined the firm following its acquisition of property consultancy GSD.
In 2010, he was promoted to head of regional office agency and last year oversaw the relocation of the consultancy from Cornwall Court to a new HQ in Temple Row.
As executive directors, the pair will continue to develop their respective services lines as well as support managing director Martin Guest in driving the growth of the business.
CBRE has also promoted ten other people within its Birmingham office including five team members stepping up from senior surveyor to associate director.
They are David Bullimore (rating), Stelios Demetriou (lease consultancy), Simon Etough (asset services), Jan Losch (valuation) and Sarah Pritchard (global corporate services).
Toby Bowser (building consultancy and design), Stephanie Cartwright (rating) and Verity Cubitt (valuation) have moved up from surveyor to senior surveyor and Angela Hasluck (rating) completes the promotions by becoming a surveyor.
Graduate Abigail Barnes has also joined the specialist markets team as a surveyor, having passed her APC.
Mr Guest said: "These promotions, as well as recognising the contribution each individual has made to their team and the business as a whole, represent the sustained growth we are seeing across all areas of the business.
"As we look to grow the business further, attracting and retaining the best people will be crucial to achieving our goals."
