SDL Auctions makes new hire to move into Manchester

SDL Auctions North West has announced a move to a bigger venue in Manchester and appointed a top regional valuer to lead its team.

Andy Thompson, who has spent 12 years in property auctions in the north west, is the company’s new residential auction valuer and is now busy securing entries for the first Manchester-based auction on 13 July at the AJ Bell Stadium. This new base will build on the recently rebranded firm’s first auction in Bolton last month.

He joins from Edward Mellor Auctions of Stockport, where he established his reputation as one of the region’s top property auction experts.

Rory Daly, chief executive and auctioneer at SDL Auctions, said: “Due to the success of our first north west auction, we’re now moving into a bigger venue in Manchester to help us consolidate our operations across the region. We’re delighted to welcome Andy Thompson to our team and we’re sure that his in-depth experience across the north west will help us to make a real impact.

Thompson also advises Manchester City Council on private landlord issues and works with homeless charities in the area and said he is “genuinely excited to help push forward with SDL’s expansion across the North West”.
