Three Manchester agency directors have resigned from the Manchester office of troubled property services firm Erinaceous.

Peter Gallagher, head of agency, Philip Meakin, head of office agency, and Paul Day, head of industrial agency, will all be leaving the company.

The departures take the number of directors to have left the company to more than 20 in the last 18 months.

The trio were unavailable for comment as to their future plans.

Dunlop Heywoods
Gallagher, one of Manchester’s best known property figures, had worked for the company for over 35 years, as a partner at Dunlop Heywoods, which was bought by Erinaceous in 2004 and rebranded Dunlop Haywards in 2004.

He was instrumental in the creation of Allied London’s Spinningfields office development in the early 1990’s.

The scheme had been Erinaceous’s letting instruction in Manchester, but it lost out to DTZ in July this year.

Stuart Hicks, managing director of professional services at Erinaceous, said: ‘Peter leaves us with our best wishes and thanks for many years service’.
