Piers has been in the property industry for over 20 years, starting off his career in a highly successful niche practice in the City of London. After 4 years of cutting his teeth on both landlord and tenant work he wanted to gain some big firm experience and be exposed to the world of blue chip occupiers and developer landlords in one of the biggest real estate practices globally. Piers wanted to further progress his career and moved with the firm to the Middle East to set up Leasing operations in Abu Dhabi. After 2 and half years Piers was approached to head-up commercial leasing and asset management for one of the worlds largest Soverign wealth funds where he was responsible for leasing 1.9 million sq ft of office space. It was here that Piers saw the disparity of advice provided to landlords and tenants, realising that tenants on the whole receive sub standard advice compared to landlords.
Piers wanted to practice what he preached and set up a tenant only consultancy in London which later merged with other like minded professionals to form Reesa, part of Row Group.
Out of work Piers is a keen skier, windsurfer and socialiser and stays fit by keeping up with his 3 sons.
David has been part of the fast emerging PropTech scene since it’s creation, using over 15 years of industry experience to innovate and pioneer what OCO believe is going to be a game changer.
The hunt for commercial property often lacks a certain level of transparency, honesty, speed and trust.
