Bruton Knowles has made the move into Plymouth to help businesses in and around the city with all their property issues.
Glenn Kelly, formerly with Vickery Holman along with Bruton Knowles Partner Paul Matthews have opened the new office in Lockyer Street, Plymouth with further recruits joining in the coming months.
Glenn has a strong knowledge of the Plymouth market and is well known in the business community with his fundraising work for Plymouth Round Table. He is joined by Paul Matthews, who has 32 years’ experience of the West Country property market, moving to Bruton Knowles in 2013 as the next step in a career that has included being head of both Chesterton and BNP Paribas Bristol offices and establishing Fuller Peiser in the region.
Said Glenn Kelly: “This is an exciting time for me and I am delighted to be involved with the opening of our new Plymouth office. It is a vote of confidence in the City and reinforces its appeal as a business location. My work in Plymouth and the surrounding area will continue to cover a wide remit of property related matters including valuations of land and buildings, development and feasibility studies, lease advisory, business rates and agency advice”.
Our aim is to combine the depth of experience that Bruton Knowles has of both urban and rural property in the region with the extensive knowledge of the Plymouth market. We will be expanding the team in the New Year.”
Patrick Downes, Managing Partner said: “It is exciting to be setting up a new operation in Plymouth, enabling us to provide a truly local service to the business community. The decision to open now reflects the economic importance of Plymouth to the region.
We have appointed people with fantastic contacts and knowledge of the Plymouth market to launch the new office.”
