Savills has appointed Niall Macleod as director and head of residential development in Aberdeen.
Niall was previously land director with Dandara, one of the UK’s most diverse independent property development and land promotion companies. He has been at the forefront of many significant land deals in the North East of Scotland and beyond.
Ben Brough, Savills head of Scotland development, said: “It is brilliant to have someone of Niall’s background and experience joining us to provide a high quality, client-focused service. He will focus on continuing to grow Savills client base in the North East but also support our wider development business across Scotland.”
Niall Macleod said: “It is an exciting time to be joining Savills. Scotland’s housing market is poised for further growth and I look forward to working with landowners, developers and investors to help them to capitalise on this by providing new homes in places people want to live.”
From valuation, land sales and acquisitions, through to funding and portfolio advice, Savills development team works across residential, commercial, rural and mixed-use projects, backed up by expert in-house planning, research and new homes sales teams.
