Davis Coffer Lyons has expanded its Development & London Estates team with the appointment of Cesca Hawes.

Hawes has joined the team, headed up by Tracey Mills, as a senior surveyor. She was previously on the leisure agency team at Harper Dennis Hobbs.

At DCL she will work on several of the team’s clients and projects, which include Grosvenor, Shaftesbury, British Land, and TH Real Estate.

Tracey Mills, executive director of Development & London Estates Leasing at DCL, said: “We’re so pleased Cesca has joined us, bringing with her a wealth of contacts with some of the trendiest emerging F&B operators.

“It’s a pivotal aspect of our work to marry our established relationships with best-in-class long-standing operators together with the new fledgling concepts and future stars of the leisure industry – being able to spot these is our life blood and ensures our team maintains its position at the vanguard of creating some of the UK’s most attractive eating and drinking out destinations.”
