Developer and asset manager Chancerygate to open Bristol office

Chancerygate Rupert Joseland,

Chancerygate, the multi-unit industrial developer and asset manager, is to open an office in central Bristol as it seeks to further grow its activity throughout the South West and into South Wales, where the company is already actively looking for development sites.

The new office will be led by former St Modwen Industrial & Logistics managing director, Rupert Joseland, who will join Chancerygate in September as development director.

During the past three years, Chancerygate has successfully delivered more than 568,000 sq ft of Grade A industrial space across five developments in the South West worth a combined £76 milling.

These comprise Vertex Park and Warmley Business Park in Bristol; Festival Trade Park and Furlong Park in Cheltenham and Apollo Park in Yate.

Rupert, who lives in Bristol, said: ““I have watched Chancerygate gather momentum over recent years so, when the opportunity arose to lead a regional office where I live, it was one I wanted to take.

“Chancerygate has a deserved great reputation for successful speculative development, an excellent product and acting quickly and decisively to get things done.

“I am looking forward to taking that refreshing approach to industrial development to an even wider audience in the South West and into South Wales.”

The opening of Chancerygate’s Bristol office follows the successful launches of a Birmingham office to serve the Midlands in 2018 and a Warrington office in 2015 to focus on the north of England and Scotland.

Chancerygate managing director, Richard Bains, said: “We are very pleased to have appointed Rupert to lead our new Bristol office as part of Chancerygate’s continued expansion throughout the UK.

“He is ideal for the role, bringing with him 20 years’ experience, and is highly regarded by his peers within the industrial and logistics sector.

“His extensive understanding of developing throughout the South West and South Wales will give us an immediate operational boost whilst his astute market knowledge will accelerate our growth plans.

“Under his leadership, we fully expect to be growing our development and project management teams in the Bristol office in due course.”
