Leading consultancy Commercial Property Partners LLP (CPP) has appointed Richard Wright to join its investment team, heading up the firm’s first office base in London.

Joining CPP following five years as an Associate Partner at BNP Paribas, formerly Strutt & Parker, Wright brings with him a wealth of in-depth knowledge of the London region, and over a decade’s experience as a commercial property agent.

His appointment further bolsters the growing CPP team, which currently has offices in South Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire and comes at a crucial time for the consultancy as it strengthens its reach into southern markets.

With particular expertise in brokerage across the industrial and logistics sectors in the UK, Wright specialises in the acquisition, development and disposal of commercial property on behalf of a variety of private high-net-worth individuals to major blue-chip plc corporates, funds, property companies and developers.

Richard Wright said: “CPP has established a strong reputation for its commercial property expertise since it was established in 2013. I am excited to be joining the forward thinking and ambition team at this pivotal time for its growth time, and to head up the CPP London office.”

Roger Haworth, co-founding Partner at CPP, said: “The launch of our London office is a direct response to growing demand from existing and new clientele for our services in the capital, and I am delighted to announce the appointment of Richard Wright to head up its launch.

“His expertise and experience will be key to the successful launch of our London presence. We are looking forward to welcoming him on board, and continuing the development and success of CPP.”
