Sterling Capitol, the Yorkshire property development company, has strengthened its team with two key appointments.

Paul Beckett joins as Head of Development, while Claire Bond is the company’s new Financial Controller.

The company, chaired by Sir Bob Murray CBE, owns and manages business parks across the county.

Paul, who studied real estate at Sheffield Hallam University, joins from Cromwell Property Group, where he was Asset Investment Manager. He previously worked for property consultancy Carter Jonas in Leeds.  Claire also worked for Cromwell, as well as Knight Frank in Leeds.

Paul said: “This is a very exciting and opportune move. Sterling Capitol have ambitious plans to further develop its Capitol Park business parks in Leeds, Barnsley and Goole and I will have an integral part to play in this, as well as further developing the Capitol Park brand throughout the north of England.

“Equally importantly, I will be taking on the asset management role of the balance sheet assets at all Sterling’s properties.”

Claire added: “This is a great opportunity to work within a friendly and tight-knit team. The company’s future looks extremely bright and I am delighted to be part of it.”

Mike Heydecke, CEO of Sterling Capitol explained: “These are two very important strategic appointments for Sterling Capitol, which will both enhance and strengthen our team. Both Paul and Claire have excellent track records and I am confident their experience and expertise in their respective roles will be a massive asset to our company.”

He added: “As one of the most respected property development companies in the region, we are focused on building on the company’s achievements in the past two decades, to ensure a  successful future.”
