Commercial property consultancy RARE has announced the appointment of Mark Lycett as consultant.

Mr Lycett was previously senior property manager at Centrica Plc, where he worked at the firm’s Windsor head office for almost 15 years on the operational portfolio supporting its numerous business brands.

RARE founder Jonathan Mannings said: “He brings a wealth of corporate property experience to the business and will be central to driving forward a number of planned initiatives over coming months.

“Mark’s detailed knowledge of being client side in the corporate sector is a great addition to our skill set and will set us apart in our drive to provide services designed to assist occupiers through these unprecedented times.”

RARE recently announced the launch of RARE:bnb designed to connect occupiers who have too much space with companies seeking highly flexible space to address immediate, post lockdown, property strategies.

Mr Lycett has also established a new company, called SME Offices, designed to support small businesses throughout their property occupation.

It aims to help align business and property strategies through flexible and leased space.
