GAL Press release

KBW Chartered Surveyors has been appointed as property advisors to Gloucestershire Airport.

KBW will provide strategic estate and development advice to the airport from its Cheltenham office. It will be responsible for the full range of property services at the Staverton site, including commercial property management, landlord and tenant services, building consultancy and commercial agency services.

KBW was awarded the contract in August, following a competitive tendering process against tough opposition.

Mark Ryan, Managing Director of Gloucestershire Airport, said: “Gloucestershire Airport is delighted to announce that KBW has been appointed as advisors to the airport, following a robust tendering process. KBW will provide professional support to a growing part of the business by helping the airport in areas of strategic estate management, operational commercial property management and development.

“The airport has seen a significant transformation in recent years, with a number of important improvements to buildings and facilities on offer. Property plays an important part in the overall business plan and has a key role to play in the success of the airport. This is a really exciting time for the airport and we are delighted to be working with KBW in helping us deliver our property portfolio.”

Kevin Allen, KBW’s lead client contact for the airport, said: “Whilst KBW provides specialist property services to clients throughout the UK, we have a strong presence in Gloucestershire. This makes it even more rewarding to be successful in securing this prestigious instruction at one of the county’s landmark locations. Mark Ryan leads the excellent Gloucestershire Airport team in the management of the UK’s busiest general aviation airport. It is fantastic that KBW can be a part of that and we look forward to helping the airport achieve its exciting future goals.”

Gloucestershire Airport recently celebrated its 80th birthday and KBW is approaching its 10 year anniversary in spring 2017.
