Montagu Evans’ Property Management team includes 160 people working in London and across the UK, focussing on offices and retail property within the firm’s sector-based approach. With these new additions it its led by 13 of the firm’s Partners.
Neil Worrall, Head of Property Management at Montagu Evans said: “Our proposition in property management centres on a technology and customer experience-led business, driven by a group of strategic and innovative experts – all built on a rock-solid foundation of fundamentals.
“Partnerships are incredibly important to us externally as well as internally – whether that’s a specialist landlord in Central London, large government body, major regional town centre asset or something in between. That means nurturing and recruiting people who really understand each organisation’s needs to help connect the dots between the delivery of traditional landlord services and the experiences and services that occupiers need and value.
“This team has grown significantly over the past two or three years, and we’ve won some great mandates but there are still more roles opportunities to harness. Debbie and Rob are very welcome additions to our team as it expands and I know they will make a tremendous impact across all our sectors.”
