Colliers International UK today announced that after nearly 40 years in real estate and over six years at Colliers, Paul Smith has decided to move into a targeted consultancy role which will give him more time at the ‘coal face’ with specific clients, whilst allowing him to pursue his own interests outside the business.
The changes will be effective from 1 October.
From the perspective of business continuity, this transition will be seamless for both employees and clients, with the day to day running of the West End Agency and Development team led by Stuart Melrose, Alex Kemp and Tom Wildash. Stuart will have responsibility for the Occupier team and Alex and Tom will focus on leading the continued growth of the leasing business.
Tony Horrell, Colliers’ CEO UK & Ireland said: “Succession is extremely important in any growing business. This is the perfect solution, it gives Paul the opportunity to concentrate on what he does best – advising clients – and gives others in the team, Stuart, Alex and Tom, the opportunity to grow their careers through management and leadership.
