YardNine, the property development and asset management company, has appointed Mark Younger to its Board reuniting a team that it said has worked on 4m sq ft of development over the last 12 years.

All three Board members now were previously directors at property company Exemplar before Maxwell Shand and Campbell MacDougall founded YardNine in December 2017.

In his most recent role, Younger led a number of major projects across London. These included mixed-use developments such as Fitzroy Place, W1, and 5&6 St James’s Square, SW1; new-build office schemes such as Drapers Gardens, EC2, and The Avenue, W1; and refurbishments such as Milton Gate, EC1.

Prior to Exemplar, Younger was a director at British Land, where he was involved with mixed-use, office and distribution projects. He began his career at MEPC, where by the end of his tenure, he was specialising in the development and asset management of out-of-town office space.

Younger said: “After a short break from the industry, I am excited to be working again alongside Maxwell and Campbell whose expertise I respect hugely. The success of the projects we have previously completed together speaks for itself and our combined track record puts YardNine in an enviable position in the sector."

Maxwell Shand, Co-Founder of YardNine, said: “With two deals completed since setting up less than a year ago and more opportunities in the pipeline, Campbell and I are thrilled that Mark is joining us, bringing his experience and relationships as we continue to seek out exciting opportunities across a broad range of sectors in London. Mark’s arrival further strengthens our ability to offer senior-level attention on our projects, establishing us a development partner of choice for the industry.”
