Liz Askam has been appointed to Property Manager at Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA) where she will be responsible for the asset management of its tenant property portfolio.

In her new role, Ms Askam will play a “fundamental” role in promoting the development opportunities at the airport’s immediate site. This, DSA said, is a key part of its twenty-year masterplan.

Ms Askam joins the team from Harworth Group where she worked as Asset Manager in the Business Space Division dealing with property management across the north of England and the Midlands.

In this role, she was also involved in several major developments for the Sheffield City Region (SCR) such as Gateway 36 and the Advanced Manufacturing Park.

Published in 2018, the airport’s Masterplan details the future development of the current site and projected growth, including a forecast of 4.7 million passengers and 70,000 tonnes of cargo per year, over the next 20 years with the creation of an Aerotropolis.

“I’m delighted to be joining the team at Doncaster Sheffield Airport working on delivering the Airport’s Masterplan,” said Ms Askam.

“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.”
