Waypoint Asset Management boosts its shopping centre and retail asset management team with the appointment of industry expert, Steven Kidd.
Having studied at the University of Westminster, Steven’s career in property started in the mid-1970s, and, over the years, he has worked for a variety of high-profile businesses including P&O properties, Jones Lang Wootton, Donaldsons, and Deloittes. In 1994, Steven founded Mayfield Asset Management and oversaw the firm’s expansion across Europe.
“As the economy emerges from the ravages of the pandemic, there will be a period of readjustment for many asset classes, as the way in which we use real estate. The impact of the pandemic will be felt for many years upon many sectors of the economy, exacerbating the changes to the retail sector that the market had already been experiencing before Covid- 19,” says Steven, adding:
“Post-pandemic, there will be many opportunities for proactive management of assets to which the dynamic, entrepreneurial approach of Waypoint Asset Management is well-suited. I am very excited about the opportunities that working with the experienced team and the firm’s clients will present.”
Waypoint’s Joint Managing Director, Mike Riley, comments: “Steven has many decades of experience within the asset management, at an international level, and his exceptional market knowledge and network of contacts within the industry will bring great benefits to our expanding business at this time.”
