Time Retail Partners (TRP), the boutique retail property consultancy, has appointed Peter Wrigley, founder of 360Retail and a former senior director in CBRE’s lease consultancy business, as a consultant to head its new professional services specialism. Peter will work with Time’s established landlord and agency teams.
Founded in 2015, Time Retail Partners works with owners, occupiers and investors, and is advising a number of leading UK brands and destinations. These include Bluewater, Cribbs Causeway, Manchester Arndale, Metrocentre, Oracle Reading, Trinity and White Rose in Leeds, H&M, JD Sports, and Holland & Barrett. TRP is also a founder of The International Retail Consulting Alliance (TIRCA), an international network of boutique retail property advisors in the US, Europe and Australasia.
Peter Wrigley founded 360Retail in September and has since been appointed by Grosvenor to advise on the lease consultancy for Liverpool ONE, a role he will continue alongside his role at TRP. 360Retail was founded to provide best-in-class lease advisory input, bringing to bear Peter’s extensive experience in the industry across a diverse range of clients.
Time CEO, Rob Wingrave, commented: “We are delighted to have secured Peter’s appointment to the Time Retail Partners team as we have long wanted to add the lease advisory service to our leasing expertise. Peter’s extensive experience and track record on a number of the very best shopping and leisure assets will be a hugely beneficial service offering for our clients”.
Peter Wrigley added: “I know the Time team well, having worked with them on a number of centres over the years, and have always admired the way they have built their business. I am really excited about the synergies and opportunities to build a leading lease advisory service to complement their market-leading leasing team. While there is no question that we are in the most challenging market any of us have witnessed, in our opinion this only reinforces the need for a full service leasing and advisory offering”.
