Liz Askam has been appointed as property manager responsible for asset management for Doncaster Sheffield Airport’s tenant property portfolio.
She will play a major role in promoting the development opportunities on the airport’s immediate site, a key part of the airport’s 20-year Masterplan.
The Masterplan was published in 2018, detailing the future development of the current site and projected growth, including a forecast of 70,000 tonnes of cargo per year, over the next 20 years with the creation of an Aerotropolis.
Mike Cotterill, finance director at Doncaster Sheffield Airport says: “Liz joins our property portfolio development team at an exciting time for the airport. Her expertise in managing complex portfolios with multiple stakeholders will serve us well as we seek to fully deliver 1.5m sq ft airside space of a total 5.5m sq ft on site which Liz will focus on.”
Askam says: “The site has already shown what an excellent and easily accessible location it is for new businesses and our current tenants, with over 100 companies across the site, supporting 1,000 jobs.
“Our Masterplan allows us to explore a range of development opportunities alongside a fast-growing airport for passengers, cargo and general aviation, few places in the UK are capable of this, which is really exciting.”
