The RO Group is pleased to announce the appointment of Ed Davidson as RO Real Estate’s new Leasing Manager. Ed will primarily be based in the Group’s London office.
Ed qualified as a Chartered Surveyor with Montagu Evans, where he was involved in office, industrial, retail and leisure investment; office agency; development; lease advisory; business rates and valuation.
Subsequently, Ed was employed as a Senior Surveyor with another agency, Strutt & Parker. There he was part of the National Markets team, specialising in office agency, developments and investments with a particular focus on outer London locations as well as the Thames Valley.
Ed also has a real passion for business, and founded an online e-commerce business in 2015, growing revenue substantially before selling his stake in 2017.
Ed returned to the property industry in 2017, first as Leasing Manager and then as Senior Leasing Manager with Sorbon Estates, where he established and grew that company’s leasing team for their mixed use portfolio.
David Kershaw, Group Real Estate Director, the RO commented:
“Ed is an ‘all-rounder’, and we look forward to benefitting from the variety of skills which he brings to RO Real Estate. Fundamentally, Ed understands how to drive growth. His passion and knack for business, combined with his strong experience in the property sector – particularly in leasing – combine in a set of skills which immediately struck us as a perfect fit for our company.
“On a more granular level, Ed has proven capability in the implementation of plans which maximise rental income and occupancy. His effective, precise and professional manner of communication made an immediate impression, and we look forward to the contribution of these skills to the extension of our excellent relationships with new tenants.”
