MAG snaps up ex-Bruntwood marketeer Matt Leigh

Manchester Airports Group has recruited former Bruntwood marketeer Matt Leigh to reshape the marketing strategy for its £300m property porfolio.

MAG Developments manages properties at the group's four airports - Manchester, East Midlands, Bournemouth and Humberside - and lets out offices and warehouse space from its estate of over 5000 acres and 200 buildings. It currently has around 118,000 square feet of office space to let in Manchester.

Leigh spent 10 years in the marketing department at regional property firm Bruntwood before going it alone to start his own consultancy, Matt Leigh Industries, last month.

In a newly-formed consultancy role he will support business development director, Stephanie Mullenger, who said: "We’re focusing on the way we attract and retain customers, so Matt’s appointment is a real coup for us as he has a vast amount of experience in the property sector.

"His insight will help us to evolve our marketing outlook to complement our new customer focused approach with the aim of raising our profile and maximising our position.”

Leigh added: "MAG Developments is undergoing great change and this presents a fantastic opportunity to help shape its future marketing strategy."
