Johnson Fellows has strengthened its Manchester office with the appointment of a new associate partner.

Gillian Bamford joins the growing office of the national chartered surveyors in its professional department, bringing with her over 20 years of experience in the commercial property sector.

Her specialist skills include lease renewals, rent reviews and lease re-gears.

Formerly associate director at CBRE, Gillian has worked with major clients including Scoop Am, British Airways, Manchester Airport plc and Lancaster University. She has also advised high street banks Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds and Santander.

Gillian said: “Johnson Fellows is a fast-growing firm which I am delighted to be a part of. It has a great future and is continuing to build its reputation in the North West. It has an excellent team culture, which I am fortunate to now be a part of. I look forward to the challenges ahead.”

Chris Litherland, partner and head of the Manchester office, said: “We have a growing list of clients in the north west and Gillian has a well-deserved, strong reputation in the market, which will enable us to maintain the high level of service and advice we give and our clients expect.

“With offices in London, Manchester and Birmingham, attracting people of Gillian’s caliber, is exactly what we need to do in order to continue our progress.”


Gillian graduated from King’s College, Cambridge University, with a BA Hons degree in Land Economy before becoming a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (MRICS).

Johnson Fellows has also strengthened its Birmingham office, with the appointment of graduate Rachel Holland, who will join its retail agency team. Rachel graduated from Oxford Brookes University with a degree in Real Estate Management.
