ING has appointed Property Week Deputy Editor Allister Hayman to join its growing built environment consultancy. Allister will take up his new role in November 2016.
Allister is a well-known and respected journalist with extensive experience in the UK, writing about the built environment, economic development and public policy. Prior to Property Week he worked for Building, Local Government Chronicle and Regeneration & Renewal. He has also worked for a range of international titles, including The Age (Australia), The Phnom Penh Post (Cambodia) and the Japan Times (Japan).
The appointment is the latest in a series of high profile appointments that has seen ING strengthen its position as the only specialist agency that operates right across the built environment and property sectors – from architects and designers, to developers, contractors, public sector organisations, cultural institutions and investors.
In February 2015, Anthony (Tony) Danaher, ex-Chairman of FTI Consulting and Chief Executive of UKTI’s Regeneration and Investment Organisation (RIO) joined ING as Executive Chairman.
Dominic Morgan, former Deputy Editor of Property Week and property communications expert joined ING as a Director in May 2015.
Leanne Tritton, founder and managing director of ING said:
“We live in fascinating times and there are huge challenges and opportunities for all of our clients. It is imperative that we have the very best people who when advising clients have a very real understanding of the industry. Allister has been embedded in the UK property and regeneration sector for many years and it is a great testament to ING that we were able to attract him over from the world of journalism.”
Allister Hayman said:
“I’m really excited to be joining the incredibly talented and experienced team at ING Media. ING has established itself as the go-to agency for the built environment, with a growing array of high profile clients from across architecture, property and construction. It’s a fascinating time for the built environment sector and I’m looking forward to bringing my experience in journalism to bear to help ING’s clients navigate the changing landscape and capitalise on opportunities that lie ahead.”
