Panattoni hires Scott Meakin from Tritax Symmetry
Panattoni, the largest logistics real estate developer in the UK and Europe, has appointed Scott Meakin as a development surveyor to work on projects across the North of England.
Meakin has joined from Tritax Symmetry, the logistics development arm of Tritax Big Box REIT plc. Based in the Manchester office with a focus on the North West and Yorkshire, he will be supporting the growth of the developments and strengthening the ongoing speculative programme. He will work with Dan Burn, head of development for the North West and Yorkshire, and Andy Preston, head of development for the North Midlands and Yorkshire.
Panattoni has enjoyed continued success across the North West and Yorkshire regions, with some of the biggest deals in the market, including the letting of the 630,000 sq ft speculative shed at Panattoni Park Rotherham to Alliance Automotive Group. It has recently commenced construction of Doncaster 420, which at 417,570 sqft is the largest speculative development to have commenced on site nationally this year, and is also bringing forward a further 1.8 million sq ft at Panattoni Park Crewe.
Before joining Tritax Symmetry, Meakin worked for more than three years as a surveyor at Avison Young after graduating from Nottingham Trent University with a degree in real estate.
Dan Burn, head of development for the North West and Yorkshire, said: “Scott is a talented individual, who will play a key role in supporting our continuing development strategy in the UK. He will assist in bringing forward existing land and new site opportunities and will be a great asset to further grow our speculative portfolio. We look forward to Scott getting involved, sharing his knowledge with the business and growing our team further”.
