Wise Living hires development and land manager

Build to Rent firm Wise Living has appointed Mark Gratton as development and land manager.

In his new role Gratton will work with regional and national developers looking to expand into the private rental sector.

He said: “The role is a great fit for me and a very exciting move. The team’s aspiration to revolutionise the sector by delivering high quality rental properties throughout the UK that people are proud to call home, was a big draw.

“I’m looking forward to strengthening existing relationships and forging new ones with housebuilders and developers that are keen to move into the growing BTR market, and work with us to create great places to live.”

Gratton started his career with national property consultants and chartered surveyors, Fisher German before working as development surveyor at Rigby & Co in Derby.

During that time, he advised a number of Build to Rent investors, helping to identify sites and put together deals to get schemes off the ground.

Wise Living is the build-to-rent division of the SDL Group.
