Reading-based Campbell Gordon has promoted Jake Booth and Rob Marson to director level.

And the consultant has voiced positive views on the region’s future.

Director Duncan Campbell has issued a statement on the promotions which come after the efforts of Mr Booth and Mr Marson throughout the Covid crisis.

Mr Campbell said: “We are absolutely delighted to announce the promotion of both Jake and Rob to the positions of director at Campbell Gordon.

“They have been a fundamental part of our success through the uncharted waters of the pandemic, helping clients to both protect and unlock value.

“There are, of course, challenges ahead for the market, not least through this new lockdown, but also in the longer term as we gradually exit the constraints of the pandemic.

“However, we believe the opportunities are far more significant. We have seen that the fundamental strength and appeal of the Thames Valley through this period is entirely undiminished, and indeed is now even stronger than before compared to other locations.

“We are looking forward to being at the heart of the continued long-term growth of this hugely exciting and dynamic region.”

Both Mr Booth and Mr Marson are similarly upbeat.

Mr Booth said: “The Thames Valley market has changed radically in the last five years and, whilst 2020 was a challenge, the ingredients for a return to rapid growth are all in place and we anticipate significant development and investment opportunities going forwards.”

Mr Marson said: “We see pent up office demand across our region and are confident that will translate into lettings during the course of 2021.”

Director Keith Wise said: “The office leasing market has seen some significant difficulties and there is still plenty of uncertainty ahead, but as a team we are confident that we will see a return to a more normal market in the foreseeable future.

“We are an established and diverse team with the range of skills required to help our clients in the bad times and the good.”
