Sigma Capital Group, the private rented sector, residential development and urban regeneration specialist is continuing its growth strategy, with the recruitment of Tom Shepherd as development manager from one of the UK’s real estate and financial giants.
Tom joins the company following 10 years at Deloitte. As part of the National Capital Markets Team, he was responsible for the acquisition and disposal of commercial land and investment assets, including the forward funding of a several commercial and student schemes.
Tom’s new role will include managing the delivery of Sigma’s growing private rented sector (PRS) portfolio, as well as assisting with the appraising and structuring of new initiatives in this sector.
Earlier this month Sigma announced the completion and letting of its milestone 1,000th private rental home. As one of the UK’s PRS industry leaders, Tom’s investment advisory expertise will be yet another great competitive advantage to Sigma.
Tom, said of his new role: “Sigma is an established leader in the PRS sector, an industry which I consider to be of significant importance considering the current housing shortage and limited affordability for first time buyers. I’m looking forward to being part of such a specialist team and applying my wealth of experience gained over the last 10 years.”
With the addition of Tom and 10 other new recruits this year, Sigma now employees 28 people.
