Tom Erskine

Although I've lived all over the UK as well as Genoa, Warsaw, Philadelphia and Seattle, I have spent most of my life in Derby and consider it to be home. It is a great place to live, has enormous potential and the opportunity to be part of realising it is a massive motivation for me.

You'll find me...

Researching the latest market trends across the property, retail and leisure sectors, showing potential investors and new businesses around Derby and working with developers and Derby City Council to bring new schemes to fruition.
 

I'm currently working on...

Bringing more city living to Derby with a focus on 'Build to Rent' to satisfy the demand from our affluent workforce, and working with several premium retail and leisure brands looking at the city as the ideal location for expansion.
 

My favourite inspirational quote...

"All generalisations are false, including this one."
 

My hidden Derby gem is...

What lies beneath the city streets you walk on, including culverted streams and brooks, vertically stacked bodies in graveyards or catacombs that ferried prisoners for sentencing.
 

What I bring to the team...

A passion for the constant regeneration of Derby and an endless supply of Derby County flags through my work with the 1884 Group.
