Marsh & Parsons boosts RDI offering with big hires from CBRE

London agency poaches Rory Cramer and Alex Greaves to bolster three-year-old resi development business

Marsh & Parsons has significantly strengthened its three-year-old RDI business, with two senior hires from CBRE.

Rory Cramer

Rory Cramer has joined as Head of Consultancy & Strategy and Alex Greaves as Head of Sales to its New Homes Department; both will work alongside Head of Residential Development and Investment, Charles Holland.

The new Directors bring some impressive resi development experience to the table; formerly of Hamptons International, Cramer spent eight years at CBRE working on flagship projects including Fitzroy Place, South Bank Tower and One Nine Elms.

Greaves, meanwhile, worked on development consultancy, resi investments and acquisitions during his six-year stint, along with projects including the South Bank Tower and Fulham Riverside. He also put in some time at Chestertons and Harrods Estates, specialising in super-prime London sales.

Marsh & Parsons’ RDI business was set up in 2014 and peddles development consultancy, sales advice, development marketing and sales/acquisition services to clients including Mount Anvil, Crest Nicholson and Frasers Property.

Alex Greaves

Holland: “Rory and Alex are fantastic senior level additions to our rapidly evolving New Homes business and provide the credibility and expertise required to leverage off the major successes we have enjoyed to date as we grow the business into a significant operator within the New Homes sector. We are advising major clients across a wide range of developments throughout London, from planning to delivery as part of our wider ‘Asset Evolution’ capability. Their undoubted talent and track record will enable us to provide the highest levels of customer service to our clients – from the initial development consultancy through to point of sale and final completion.”

Cramer: “We are incredibly excited to help grow the New Homes team with a brand as well established and regarded as Marsh & Parsons. The current market presents the perfect time for us to increase market share in London and our highly professional and experienced team will provide a 360 degree service to our clients in the land, consultancy and sales sectors.”

Greaves: “’Marsh & Parsons has an exceptional reputation for consistently delivering the highest levels of customer service to its clients. We have ambitious growth plans to capitalise on the significant opportunity presented by the market and I look forward to drawing on the company’s outstanding agency network and reputable brand, to help build a leading London New Homes business.”
