Bruton Knowles opens Cambridge operation
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.
Briggs 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.
Bruton Knowles managing partner, James Bailey, said: “We are thrilled that Amanda 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.”
Bruton Knowles is an independently-owned national property consultancy, now with 13 offices across the UK. Its large multi-disciplinary team is highly experienced in sale and purchase, valuation, leasing and strategy across commercial, rural and urban property, and has specialist expertise in utilities, public sector and social housing.
