GL Hearn – part of Capita Real Estate – announces today that Steve McGavin has been appointed as the head of development group for Scotland, based in Edinburgh. Steve joins GL Hearn from Edinburgh City Council, where he spent over six years as head of business partnerships, with responsibility for business improvement districts, town centre regeneration, priority development zones, the Edinburgh business forum and tourism.

As part of this role, where he worked closely with the development community, he had responsibility for the ‘Edinburgh 12’, a strategic group of 12 development sites across the city that together are expected to deliver 20,000 new jobs, 1.5million square foot of office space and 1,600 hotel rooms. 
 
His new role at GL Hearn will see him lead the Scottish development group, with responsibility for development projects across Scotland. Steve will be aiming to expand GL Hearn’s presence in Scotland, particularly from its existing offices in Edinburgh and Glasgow. He will work with Capita Real Estate colleagues to unlock the development potential of key opportunity sites and help deliver the growth agenda. 
 
Steve said: “I’m thrilled to be joining the GL Hearn team. This is an exciting time for development in Scotland. Capita and GL Hearn both have a fantastic reputation and track record – and I’m looking forward to working with my new team to expand our presence and deliver results for our clients.”
 
Alastair Crowdy, national head of development group for GL Hearn, said: “We are tremendously pleased to have Steve on board – he is going to bring a wealth of experience of working on development in Scotland and bolster an already strong Capita Real Estate and GL Hearn presence in Edinburgh.”
