Dear All,

I’m pleased to announce the promotion of both Taylor Gershon & Jessica Carlyle-Clarke as our new Associate Directors. Taylor & Jessica have worked for the company for only 3 years combined but promptly secured their places as invaluable members of the agency team!


They have both brought huge levels of innovation and have been valued members since their early days as trainees to their inevitable move into Associate Director roles.

Both have been highly influential in the development of our F&B disposals and acquisitions departments and have continued to show exemplary commitment to their role as innovators and deal makers!

Taylor Gershon / Associate Director / E-mail:

During his time in the team, Taylor has led some notable projects to completion and has been at the forefront of moves to streamline processes as well as implementing systems to coordinate with marketing. A recent and notable highlight being the advice given to a high profile chef-restaurateur who was on the verge of paying a £200,000 surrender premium to the Landlord. Taylor was able to achieve a £200,000 premium to buy the lease.... Swiftly converting a £200,000 loss into a £200,000 profit.
