Carter Jonas is strengthening its position in the industrial market, by expanding its commercial team in London with three new appointments. Andrew Smith and Frédéric Schneider have joined as partners together with Joe Skinner as an associate.
The new team will be based out of Carter Jonas’s head office, Chapel Place, London. They will be working with the commercial teams across the UK focusing on acquisition, disposal, asset management and corporate solutions. Joining from Capita, Smith and Schneider have extensive experience of working with Fortune 500 companies in the industrial sector across the UK, Europe and ASIAPAC, advising on corporate real estate strategy and implantation.
Smith and Schneider, both with over 16 years of experience, are members of the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors. Schneider is a member of the SIOR International Advisory council headquartered in Washington DC and immediate past president of the European Chapter. Smith is part of the European Chapter Board.
Scott Harkness, head of the commercial division, Carter Jonas, said:
“These three appointments support our business strategy to enhance our national and international profile as well as ensuring that we provide clients with a full service offering. As the needs of our clients become increasingly diverse we continue to look to how we can meet these requirements with a network of industrial experts across the UK.”
“Both Andrew and Frédéric are leading figures in the industry and, with Joe, bring a wealth of specialist expertise and a broad contact base. We look forward to working with the team to utilise this knowledge for the benefit of new and existing clients.”
Andrew Smith, partner, Carter Jonas, commented:
“I was really attracted to Carter Jonas’ partnership structure and its ambitious plans for growing their commercial division – it feels like the ideal platform to build on and serve clients well. It is a great opportunity to join a dynamic business and grow Carter Jonas’ national and international capabilities.”
