Commercial property developer and investor Eshton Group has strengthened its senior team with the appointment of David Aspland as director.
David has more than 25 years’ experience in the commercial, residential development and investment property market having previously worked for Donaldsons, Unite PLC and as a director for Savills and a partner at Carter Jonas. Following this, in 2017, David joined Illuminating Investments.
David’s role at Eshton Group will centre on identifying opportunities for acquisition by further building on his extensive network of agents and developers in the Yorkshire region, and tapping into relevant property trends to drive the most value from the sites and opportunities on offer.
He said: “Eshton Group have made their position in the market clear; they’re ambitious and are targeting strong growth over the coming years; proactively chasing exciting investment and development opportunities. I want to use my experience to further strengthen their existing team and bring in new prospects to drive even more momentum.
“I’m excited about this next stage in my career, knowing I’m going to be part of such an enthusiastic and vibrant team that shares my ambitions when it comes to the role commercial property can play in supporting our economy.”
Jonathan Chapman, director at Eshton Group, said: “David’s reputation precedes him, for all the right reasons. He is a mainspring within the region’s commercial property market, having spearheaded a plethora of acclaimed property transactions across many sectors of the market. We couldn’t be happier to have him on our team and look forward to seeing where we can go with him playing such a key role in our business.”
