Bruce Gillingham appoints new Central London leasing Director

Niche retail and leisure consultancy, Bruce Gillingham Pollard, has appointed Lizzie Knights as a Director in its Central London leasing team.

Formerly with Colliers and BNP Paribas Real Estate, Lizzie Knights has extensive experience of working on retail and leisure leasing across prime London locations including Grosvenor’s Mayfair and Belgravia estates; Shaftesbury’s Soho and Carnaby holdings; Argent’s Coal Drops Yard at King’s Cross; and Leadenhall Market in the City of London.

Commenting on the appointment, BGP Managing Director, Tracey Pollard, said: “Lizzie Knights is an expert in curating retail portfolios to deliver best-in-class brands and occupier mixes. Her previous experience is aligned to the growing number of prime instructions on which BGP is instructed across London.”

Knights has worked with a wide variety of brands to secure their first London sites including HURR, Colourful Standard, Senturion and Aime Leon Dore. She comments:  “I am very much looking forward to being involved in projects such as MARK’s Borough Yards development, St Christophers Place for Columbia Threadneedle, and also continuing working with Grosvenor in Belgravia and Mayfair. This is an exciting time for the London prime retail and leisure as it emerges from the challenges of the past two years and is providing new opportunities for curation and attracting a fresh wave of brands and concepts.”
