Bruton Knowles strengthens Gloucester team with key promotion

Gloucester-based property consultancy, Bruton Knowles has announced a key promotion within its Land Development and Planning team.

Robert Antony, part of the firm's Land Development and Planning team who works across its Gloucester and Bristol based offices, has been promoted from associate to partner.

With an ambition to grow the team and drive the business forward across the South West region, Mr Antony will focus on the development of the team's consultancy skills and branching out of Gloucester and Bristol to continue to extend the client list further still.

In what is a very challenging time for the industry, Bruton Knowles managing partner, James Bailey said the promotion was an important step for the firm.

He said: "As an industry we are entering a period of recovery mode post lockdown and to combat that we need to think bigger. Now is the time for us to invest in employees who showcase a passion for the business and a willingness to branch out to create new opportunities.

"Robert is a land and development expert and his attention to detail, personable approach and successful results mean he is regularly retained by clients, to provide comprehensive valuation and strategy advice.

"The new promotion will enable him to continue to work closely with landowners and housebuilders not only in the South West region but further afield, driving new development opportunities, which will ultimately help to grow the business."

Mr Antony started working with Bruton Knowles back in 2003 as a graduate. He will now join Richard Brogden and Scott Winnard as partners within the Gloucester based Land Development and Planning team, providing advice to landowners from all sectors including private landowners, house builders, registered providers and government authorities.

He added: "I am delighted with the promotion to partner. After working with the business for 17 years, I have built up a high level of experience and a strong client list and will be using my skills to educate and grow the team, whilst driving forward opportunities for securing work from new and existing clients."
