“Donna has almost two decades of experience advising on leases across the North East at the highest level with her work within Newcastle Council, and as such, is the ideal candidate to bolster our client offer as market conditions are requiring more of a wider variation of leasing options.”
Leighton Thomas, head of lease advisory at BNP Paribas Real Estate, added: “We operate one the UK’s largest lease advisory teams and act across all real estate asset classes. To allow us to service our growing client demand, we’ve been actively recruiting market experts across our offices.
“Donna is the latest hire we’ve announced in a matter of months, and we are actively looking at further hires as we expand further.”
Alderson follows Jason Smith in joining the Newcastle office from Eddisons – Smith moved firms in August this year, joining BNP Paribas as a director in valuations.
