Rockspring Property Investment Managers’ director Hugh Elrington is joining Barwood Capital as a director and head of property.

Elrington worked with Rockspring, which has recently been acquired by Patrizia Immobilien, from 2009 as head of UK transactions. 

Prior to that he established and was a managing partner at Pensus Funds Management from 2006 to 2008.

Barwood said Elrington, who will join in April, will work closely with Guy Brogden, executive chairman and Joanna Greenslade, managing director. 

Director Ed Henson will continue to focus on investments and transactions, Andrew Barlow, a director, will focus on asset management and marketing, and Steve Chambers, also a director, will maintain responsibility for residential development.

Greenslade said Elrington will have significant involvement in the strategic direction of the company leading the property team to help secure and manage investments for its current and future property funds.
