Citivale Appoints New Development Director

Citivale, the UK specialist logistics developer and operator, has appointed Alex Reynolds as Development Director.

The development and strategic land specialist will be leading Greenbox - the firm’s JV with Partners Group - focused on speculative logistics developments across the UK.

Prior to Citivale, Alex spent the last three years at Tritax Symmetry as lead Development Director on their largest flagship logistics scheme, the 9 million sq ft, 450-acre Hinckley National Rail Freight Interchange.

Having initially started his career in architecture, Alex went on to qualify as a chartered surveyor while at CBRE. He then subsequently held positions at Advantage West Midlands regenerating brownfield land sites; spent seven years at specialist industrial and logistics REIT, SEGRO Plc, and was head of commercial property at FTSE100 Severn Trent Plc. 

James Appleton-Metcalfe, the Founder of Citivale, comments: " It’s great to have someone of Alex’s experience and calibre on board to drive forward our growth plans under the Greenbox JV and across our wider portfolio.  Over his career, Alex has worked in both the public and private sector, acting as consultant, developer, as well as landowner, and therefore brings a well-balanced and focused view on how best to deliver commercial development.  His expertise, especially in industrial and logistics, along with his extensive involvement in key UK sites, makes him an invaluable addition."

Alex adds: “I am delighted to be joining Citivale at this pivotal time and see the Greenbox venture as a really exciting opportunity for us to supply best-in-class industrial and logistics development with outstanding ESG credentials to occupiers who increasingly see this as essential.”

Greenbox Thirsk in North Yorkshire is the first development for Greenbox.  Launched earlier this year, Greenbox Thirsk offers 825,000 square feet of space dedicated to manufacturing and logistics across three new planned units and demonstrates the JV Partnership's unwavering commitment to exceptional sustainability practices, establishing a new benchmark in the industry.
