London-based property management company opens Birmingham office

Expanding business moves into Custard Factory.

The Custard Factory in Digbeth has attracted business from the City of London to join the hottest new destination for digital businesses and creative start-ups. Tandem, the London based property business, recently announced two new senior partners that would head up the joint venture business, brought together from real estate firms Farebrother and Tuckerman. The two senior partners were revealed as John Jones and Lisa Riva, who joined Tandem earlier this month.

Jo Salmon, Head of Asset Management at the Digbeth Estate says “We’re really happy that Tandem Property chose the Custard Factory for their first office outside London. Based in Digbeth they will rub shoulders with an eclectic mix of heritage, innovation, art and technology businesses. Collaboration and sharing ideas are the crux of what makes Digbeth such an inspiring and innovative place; we’re looking forward to welcoming the team to the family.”

Jones added, “In many respects the Digbeth area of Birmingham, which will see rapid change and regeneration, is precisely the mix of workspace, living and leisure that is increasingly attractive to occupiers. It presents a great opportunity to attract smart, vibrant and highly motivated people, which is why we are very excited about bringing our team to the Custard Factory.”

The property asset management business has recently opened their second regional office in Leeds with The Office Group, demonstrating the desire for co-working flexible office space is just as popular for professional services as well as for the creative industry.
