David began his real estate career in 2005 working with a Midlands based development company before joining BNP Paribas Real Estate in London. In 2012 David joined Revcap, a pan-European real estate private equity fund, where he was most recently an Associate Partner and was involved in more than £300m of transactions. David has experience across various asset classes including office, retail, industrial, residential, automotive, hotels, student housing, PRS and data centres.
David is both a CFA Charterholder and a qualified Chartered Surveyor as well as a member of the IPF. David also holds a Bachelor’s degree in Maths and Management from the University of Nottingham and a Master’s Degree in Real Estate Investment and Finance from the University of Reading.
In his spare time David tries his best to keep his ailing body on the rugby pitch, plays an agricultural form of golf and enjoys more than his fair share of tartiflettes in the Alps.
Martin began his career in 1988 as a trainee surveyor at the long since departed London firm of Edward Erdman. He subsequently returned to Birmingham where he worked as a commercial agent before setting up his own practice. Inevitably, the pull of development proved too strong and Martin set up his own company in the mid-1990s.
Over the last two decades Martin has been involved in a diverse range of property transactions from pioneering the residential redevelopment of Birmingham city centre in the mid to late 1990s, through to the refurbishment of a telephone exchange for 600 students and a prison for West Midlands Police Force.
When not working Martin likes to fly in the face of the traditional property stereotype and enjoys playing golf, skiing and going to Twickenham with the family.
Guy’s first taste of real estate was at a West End office agency, having graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Real Estate and Planning from the University of Reading. The allure of the Second City and its rapidly-changing property market was too great and in 2017 Guy moved to Birmingham to join regional office landlord Bruntwood as an Asset and Commercial Manager, completing transactions across more than 60,000 sq ft of space, and driving new asset management initiatives throughout the £125m portfolio.
As a recently adopted Brummie, Guy has embedded himself into the Midlands business and property communities, becoming the Commercial Officer for BPS Birmingham, sitting on both the BCO NextGen Committee and a Colmore BID working group, as well as supporting charitable initiatives around access to employment.
Outside of work Guy is a co-founder of the young property professionals trip RESki, and spends his time visiting family on the South Coast, playing piano, and working towards his APC.
