What’s your sector focus at Granger Reis and why do you like it?
My focus is European Real Estate. We have an expert knowledge of and network in semi-industrial development, logistics, commercial and residential real estate. This is an exciting market with extensive pan-European investment currently being made to take advantage of market opportunities.
The sector is interesting because of the people in it and the level of growth we’ve seen across Developers, Occupiers and Real Estate Funds & Investment businesses operating in this space. There’s a huge number of projects, businesses and initiatives in this space, and I personally find it fascinating how businesses are going to increasingly capitalise and scale with market demand.
What excites you about the future of the executive search industry?
The future for the executive search industry is a bright one; multinational organisations have increased the need for Executive Search Partners that operate globally and that can align specific individuals with key businesses requirements. It is also fantastic to see organisations wanting to think outside of the box and do things differently; at Granger Reis our focus is on finding the leaders of tomorrow, and we pride ourselves on always having Diversity (in all forms) at the heart of what we do.
Our aim is always to build out our value proposition and increasingly work in partnership with our clients as trusted advisors to support them reaching their objectives and broader business strategies; whether that is Diversity, Scale, Revenue Generation, Growth etc.
In your opinion, what makes Granger Reis different?
Our size, and our focus on client feedback, engagement and satisfaction. We are absolutely client-focussed as a business, and despite our (relative) size we work with incredible businesses doing amazing things! This, I believe, is down to our focus on putting our client first and doing our best to manage and exceed their expectations. We have a number of key clients who want to work with us year after year as a result, which is always the foundation of building a truly successful business.
