Greg joins the team following over three years as Senior Asset Manager for Tilstone Partners, the investment advisor for Warehouse REIT plc - a specialist investor in warehousing where he was responsible for the management of its three million sq. ft. North West and Yorkshire portfolio. He brings to the role a wealth of experience in acquisitions, disposals, asset, and property management having previously held roles at Asda and CEG in Leeds. At ABP Greg will be responsible for property activity across the four Humber ports.
Simon Bird, Regional Director of ABP Humber said: “We are delighted to welcome Greg to the Humber ports. He will play a critical role in delivering our ambitious property strategy, which includes the historic Kasbah on the Port of Grimsby and our many ambitious development sites which all contribute to local and national economic growth.”
Greg Lacey added: “I’m hugely excited to join ABP, the UK’s leading ports group and to lead on unlocking asset management opportunities in a port environment, playing on the strengths of both Freeports and the more recently announced Investment Zones.”
“There are strong opportunities for wider strategic land development focused on port centric logistics and manufacturing, in turn, unlocking significant economic growth and job creation. At Humber International Enterprise Park (HIEP) one of the UK’s largest allocated industrial employment sites – we have an exclusive proposition to attract multinational occupiers across a range of business sectors who want to achieve supply chain resilience and quick access to global markets. The Humber ports are an exciting place for new and existing customers to invest, and ABP are strongly placed in what continues to be a supply constrained industrial and logistics sector.”
