TowerEight poaches JLL senior offices director


TowerEight, the leading project and cost management consultancy, has appointed Sam Addison to head its expansion in the office sector.


Sam joined Tower8 last month, after 18 years at JLL, where she worked across a large number of multi-national corporate clients including Shell, Microsoft, Nokia Networks, GSK, Scottish Widows and Mars Pension Fund Trustees.


She now joins TowerEight to develop the consultancy’s office expertise and lead its expansion in this key market.


Having already completed over 1 million sq ft of office space in the past two years, TowerEight is keen to develop its office expertise and expand in this key market. Last year TowerEight lead on the Amsprop Sugar Building on Cheapside and is currently working on Alderman’s House near Liverpool Street. TowerEight was also recently appointed to fit-out Park House on Oxford Street for Centrica’s traders division.


James Morris, Director at TowerEight, said: “In the past four years we have grown strongly in hotels, PRS, student accommodation, healthcare and residential, and the office market was an area we are keen to develop further and become a key strategic part of our growth.”


“Sam is the perfect person to lead this development given her experience but also the commitment she displays to her clients and the value she delivers on every project – these are the principles that TowerEight demands for every client.”


Sam will bring a technical background across project and cost management as well as programme management services.  In her last role at JLL she was leading the corporate occupier PM team, working for clients such as Sky, GSK, Deutsche Bank, Shell and Amazon.


“The role at TowerEight represents a new opportunity to use all the experience I have gained in the past 25 years and develop it within an exciting and dynamic new setting,” explained Sam Addison.


“The consultancy has grown rapidly in the past four years and its commitment to deliver independent, value-driven services for TowerEight clients presents an exciting challenge.  We have ambitious growth plans for this sector, with a target to deliver 1 million sq ft plus of office space by the end of next year.”


Sam joined TowerEight as a Project Manager last month.
