As a Founding Partner of Core Five and one of the leaders of our Corporate Real Estate team, I encourage a strong emphasis on collaborative working, providing clear and consistent advice enabling Clients to make timely informed decisions that add value and reduce risk. A key part of our philosophy is to ensure that we and other team members are fully aware of a Client’s project and business objectives and how these combine to define value for money. We are value driven rather than simply cost driven.
I have over 30 years’ industry experience leading and managing teams on a broad range of challenging and complex projects in both the public and private sectors. I have worked on projects in the UK and have been responsible for leading a number of European and global frameworks with major corporates. During my career I have worked with the likes of Lansec, British Land, Stanhope, Legal and General, Henderson, Deutsche Bank, Barclays, RBS, Credit Suisse, UBS, Exxon Mobil, Havas, Amlin, and Coca Cola.
What inspired you to join the construction and property industry?
The opportunity to influence the way we work, live and play. Be part of a great industry that produces fantastic schemes that shape our communities.
What is your favourite building and why?
One of my favourites is the Empire State Building – Pushing the boundaries of technology at the time of its construction, when the world was in turmoil and subsequently standing the test of time.
