appointment of two new Directors: Charlie Wardroper, Director of
Office Agency, and John Burnside, Investment Director,

this important sector within Capita Symonds’ business.

Estate, said: “These appointments are great news as they bring
additional experience and energy to Capita Symonds’ Real Estate
Division. Charlie Wardroper and John Burnside have a vast level of
knowledge and experience which will complement the existing Markets
team and they will be pivotal in supporting our growth as we look
to gain market share in key sectors.”

years' experience in commercial property to the role, with

development, advising landlords and occupiers both in central
London and the national markets.

Poland business and was previously Managing Director of CB Richard
Ellis’ north east business, based in Leeds.
John Burnside (pictured, left) most recently worked for
DTZ, where he was responsible for the UK High Street Retail

strong retail focus - from 1998 to 2007, prior to Donaldsons'
acquisition by DTZ.
John will join Capita Symonds in January 2012.
