Liz will play a fundamental role in promoting the development opportunities on the airport’s immediate site, a key part of the airport’s 20-year Masterplan.
Ms Askam joins the team from Harworth Group where she worked as asset manager in the Business Space Division dealing with property management across the north of England and the Midlands and was involved in several major developments for the Sheffield City Region (SCR) such as Gateway 36 and the Advanced Manufacturing Park.
Mike Cotterill, Finance Director at Doncaster Sheffield Airport, said: “Liz joins our property portfolio development team at an exciting time for the airport.  Her expertise in managing complex portfolios with multiple stakeholders will serve us well as we seek to fully deliver 1.5m sq ft airside space of a total 5.5m sq ft on site which Liz will focus on.
The airport’s Masterplan published in 2018, details the future development of the current site and projected growth, including a forecast of 4.7 million passengers and 70,000 tonnes of cargo per year, over the next 20 years with the creation of a highly sophisticated Aerotropolis. 
Following her recent appointment, Liz Askam, said: “I’m delighted to be joining the team at Doncaster Sheffield Airport working on delivering the Airport’s Masterplan. The site has already shown what an excellent and easily accessible location it is for new businesses and our current tenants, with over 100 companies across the site, supporting 1,000 jobs.
Our Masterplan allows us to explore a range of development opportunities alongside a fast-growing airport for passengers, cargo and general aviation, few places in the UK are capable of this, which is really exciting.”
Liz studied Planning and Property Development at Nottingham Trent University, where she spent a placement year in the Estate Department of Derbyshire County Council, before gaining a First-Class Honours degree in Planning and Property Development.  Liz joined JLL, Leeds as a graduate surveyor, in September 2011, working in valuation, rating and property management and qualified as a Chartered Surveyor (MRICS) in 2013.
