“It was an easy decision for me to join a business which has a growing reputation in the region for acting decisively on deals and, building [an] excellent product in strategic locations. Those are solid foundations on which to further scale our activity in the Midlands and grow the office.”
Chancerygate launched its Birmingham office in November 2018 with the hiring of Development Director Mark Garrity from Kier Group – Seen as an important element of Chancerygate’s overall nationwide growth plan; the Birmingham office is currently running four high-profile industrial developments across the Midlands.

Welcoming Dan to the company, Chancerygate Development Director and Head of the Birmingham office, Mark Garrity, said: “We have ambitious growth plans for the Midlands. We can only achieve them if the people who join us are highly capable, able to think and act entrepreneurially and share our vision of being the best at all we do.
“Dan has all those qualities in abundance, so he will enable us to significantly increase our activity in the Midlands throughout 2020 and beyond.”
