National property consultancy Bruton Knowles has opened a new office, its 13th in the UK, in Cambridge and appointed Amanda Briggs as Partner to head it up, oversee a growing client portfolio in the region and build the team.
Amanda had previously worked at Bruton Knowles for 10 years to 2006, during which time she managed offices in Leatherhead and Aylesbury, and provided support for the Birmingham office as it merged with James & Lister Lea in 2001. She left Bruton Knowles as Partner in 2006 to join Bidwells as Head of Valuations and to be based closer to home in Cambridge, and then moved to part-time consultancy in 2018.
James Bailey is Managing Partner at Bruton Knowles: “Amanda’s background, her expertise, and her hugely successful career could not be more highly thought of by the team at Bruton Knowles and we are thrilled that she has chosen to return to the business.
“She has worked across multiple sectors including public sector, finance, education, charity and R&D organisations – managing complex multi-million-pound portfolios. Her knowledge of the Cambridge and the wider Eastern region is unrivalled. Equally, we know that her strategic consultancy is incredibly valued. Our client base in the region continues to expand whilst we work alongside Cambridgeshire County Council, Network Rail and a number of financial organisations, and a dedicated office to serve the area has long been a gap in our national coverage.”
Amanda said:” I have been looking for a new challenge for a little while, so when James asked to meet up and shared the plans for a new Cambridge office I was immediately interested. I know the Bruton Knowles brand and understand what the business can offer. The regional market would appear to be very well provided for but I know that the team at Bruton Knowles makes all the difference with a more personal, more unique, more appealing service for clients and always prepared to go that extra mile. That’s why they have already established such a strong presence in and around Cambridge.
“It will feel good to be back at the coalface and working to build a successful team and business here.”
