She joins the Lancaster-based firm from GVS Filter Technology, where she was responsible for UK finance and HR operations. 

Deborah, who has over 20 years of experience as a chartered management accountant, said: “Working in property and student accommodation represents an exciting step change for me personally.

“It’s a real pleasure to join a fabulous team with solid ambition and I’m looking forward to integrating my experience of working for major corporates to enable CityBlock to further grow its property portfolio and look to make an impact at both a regional and national level.”

Trevor Bargh, chief executive at CityBlock, added: “[Deborah] will be a great addition to the team and brings the right balance between a strong commercial outlook and ensuring our residents and accommodation provision continue to be at the front and centre of our values and delivery.”
