Property consultancy Bruton Knowles has appointed Peter Hadley as partner and head of professional services at its office in Worcester.

Peter has more than 30 years’ experience in the commercial property and professional services sectors, having previously worked at Jones Lang LaSalle, KPMG and Aberdeen Asset Management.

He was also regional managing director for healthcare investor and developer Assura Group Plc for more than six years, establishing a £300 million property investment portfolio across England and Wales.

Peter established his own real estate consulting business in 2012 to provide strategic property advice to executive boards in the public and private sectors, including the NHS.

His extensive experience in investment and advisory roles across the fund and asset management sectors will provide a platform for structuring and delivering property transactions and strategic consultancy advice for existing and new Bruton Knowles clients.

Peter’s appointment is the second in recent months for Bruton Knowles’ Worcester office, following Lance Turner joining the firm in January.

Ian Pitt, partner and head of Bruton Knowles in Birmingham, said: “We are delighted to have Peter on board at a time when we are gaining real traction in Worcester and the surrounding regions. With his wealth of experience and specialist capabilities in sectors such as healthcare, this high-profile appointment will bolster our client service for the Worcester office and across the Bruton Knowles network.”

Peter said: “This is an excellent time to be joining Bruton Knowles. The business is enjoying significant growth, demonstrated by the opening of the Worcester office – its 13th in the UK – earlier this year.

“There are real opportunities to grow Bruton Knowles’ client base and capability into new sectors and service lines using the highly professional teams across its national network of offices.”
