Chief Executive, Grosvenor Property UK
For 300 years we’ve been pioneering new ways of thinking about property. Today we’re focused on redefining the relationship between property owners and occupiers and communities, based on a model of mutual success, and putting the environment at the heart of every decision we make.
James has overall responsibility for Grosvenor Property UK, which owns and manages the business’ historic portfolio in London’s Mayfair and Belgravia, and an expansive regional portfolio including Liverpool ONE, one of the country’s most successful city centre regeneration projects. Beyond London, GPUK also masterplans and delivers a number of large scale, sustainable new communities and manages a growing portfolio of city centre office investments.
James joined Grosvenor’s Paris team in 2004, where he led Grosvenor's international fund management activity. He was then appointed Chief Executive of Grosvenor Property Europe in 2013 before his appointment to GPUK in 2020. Prior to this, James was the Senior Director of European Real Estate at Royal Bank of Scotland in Paris and a Non-Executive Director of Nordisk Renting in Sweden.
James is a Board member of INREV and the Westminster Property Association and sits on the BPF’s Policy Committee. He was educated at the Universities of Greenwich and Lille, France.
