Scanlans has strengthened its Leeds office with two appointments.

The new recruits are property manager Shabnam Shahid and commercial surveyor Mark Williams, who each have extensive experience of the Yorkshire market.

Shabnam has joined Scanlan’s from Leeds-based Watson Property Management, where she worked for more than five years.

Mark has moved from Dacres Commercial, which has six offices in Yorkshire.

The appointments come amid strong growth for Scanlan’s. The firm has secured a raft of recent property management deals across West and South Yorkshire, including sites in Leeds, Allerton Bywater, Rotherham and the village of Wentbridge, near Pontefract.

Alongside property management, Scanlan’s provides commercial and residential property valuations and surveys, building surveying and LPA Receivership services.

Scanlan’s chairman Ian Stanistreet said: “Mark and Shabnam join as part of our strategy to grow our presence in Leeds and serve our expanding client base in the region.

“They are great additions to the team at a time when we are seeing surging demand for our services across a buoyant Yorkshire market.”
