Knight Frank appoints Ben Hill to drive growth of Shopping Centers team

Knight Frank has appointed Ben Hill as a Partner in its Commercial Property Asset Management team in Leeds.

Hill, who has twenty years’ experience in the commercial property sector working with Europe’s largest and most complex retail assets, joins Knight Frank from British Land where he was a director and member of the retail property management senior leadership team.

At British Land, Hill was responsible for the management of approximately 1 billion pounds worth of assets in Sheffield, including Meadowhall Shopping Centre, and the surrounding sites. Earlier in his career Hill spent twelve years working as a Director of Property Management at Smith Young Partnership in Sheffield.

Based between Knight Frank’s Leeds and Sheffield offices, Hill’s newly created role will have national coverage and his appointment as Partner will strengthen Knight Frank’s shopping center management capabilities and bolster the shopping center portfolio. “Hill has a proven record as one of the leading property management experts across UK retail space and will have a key role to play in our expansion of our shopping center team in Leeds. Shopping centers are an integral part of our retail capability. Servicing a range of REITs, institutions, property companies and local authorities, our experience in the core market of strong regional centers is unrivalled. Hill brings with him an in-depth knowledge of one of the UK’s most complex and well-known retail assets and we are delighted to have him on board,” says Michael Lewis, Head of Property & Asset Management, Knight Frank.
