Cluttons has announced a number of changes for the new year.
From 12 February 2014 Cluttons said it would be launching an updated brand as a public demonstration of the profound changes which are transforming the company.
To help ensure Cluttons is one of the top four players in all markets where the company operates, its plans for growth include reorganising teams into five divisions:
* Consultancy, headed by Jamie Eastaugh;
* Agency & Capital Markets, headed by Malcolm Chumbley;
* International, headed by senior partner Bill Siegle and supported by international director Ian Gladwin and head of Middle East Steve Morgan;
* Residential Sales & Lettings, headed by James Hyman;
* Telecoms, Media, Technology (TMT), headed by managing partner John Wood.
The reorganisation has been accompanied by investment in international growth and new technology to improve delivery to clients, including a new website which will be launched in the first quarter of 2014.
All nine residential agency branches in London are in the process of being refurbished as well as a new branch in Blackheath, which will open in the New Year. Further branch openings are planned for 2014. A new residential branch was also opened in Muscat this year and the company’s Middle East headquarters will be moving to new offices in Dubai early next year.
"Our new brand signals the changes that have been going on here behind the scenes and supports our commitment to a truly Partner-led approach that ensures clients receive the benefit of our expertise, experience and good judgement," said senior partner Bill Siegle.
"This approach is also benefiting clients across the MEA and APAC regions, building on our longer established UK and Middle East businesses.
"With further international expansion planned and continued improvement in the markets in which we operate, we look forward to 2014 with a great deal of confidence."
