Jen’s roles have included providing valuations for secured lending purposes and internal information purposes as well as transactional advice. Jen has an array of clients nationally and locally including, independent school operators, children’s day nursery operators, banks and charities.
Bruton Knowles welcomes Jen during a significant period of growth for the consultancy, as it continues to drive success and expansion across the leisure and education sectors. She will be fundamental in enhancing these divisions for Bruton Knowles nationally, through offering unrivalled knowledge to both new clients, generating new leads and building on the consultancy’s long-standing relationships with independent schools.
James Bailey, Managing Partner at Bruton Knowles added: “We have seen significant success within education and leisure, especially with our LoveLeisure brand and both sectors continue to evolve and grow. Therefore, it was important that we appointed an individual who is talented and dedicated to supporting us in our expansion plans.
