With representatives from across our service lines and national offices, the executive board oversees the overall strategy and day-to-day running of the firm, as well as cultivating the ethics and integrity that define our approach. This structure frees the wider partnership to focus on client work and the partner-led advice we specialise in.
Simon Prichard - Senior Partner
I have held the role of Senior Partner since 2015, with responsibility for driving the overall strategy and performance of the firm, as well as promoting a more diverse working environment and ensuring our practices remain best in class. I am always looking at ways we can work smarter and provide an even better level of advice and service to our clients.
I am a member of our executive board and chair our diversity committee. In 2019 I was appointed chair of the UK and Ireland board of the RICS on a three-year term.
Prior to being appointed senior partner I was head of our City office, and I continue to maintain a focus on client work. I am responsible for the investment and agency transactions for London and south east offices, and have advised on some of the largest and highest-profile office transactions and restructuring deals over the past five years.
Simon Rees - Managing Partner
I’ve been managing partner since 2008, and chair both the executive board and remuneration committee, as well as being a member of the strategy board. I oversee the day-to-day business and work closely with the senior leadership team to make the right decisions on behalf of our clients and employees.
The most rewarding aspect of my role is supporting the firm through a period of sustained growth. I genuinely believe we have created something different to offer clients, with our full-service, partner-led consultative approach.
Prior to becoming managing partner, I was client partner for some of the firm’s largest industrial and transport clients, and appeared as an expert witness in both the High Court and Lands Tribunal.
