GTM bags real estate boss from Eversheds

Webb will head the ­London office’s real estate ­capability, with a focus on private sector clients in real estate investment, real estate M&A and corporate occupier trading.

Webb said: “I’ve ­developed a great portfolio of contacts in the last 18 months or so who are all at the cusp of stepping back into the real estate market in the post-recession new world order. I suspect this may well have had its ­attractions to GTM.”

Webb was at Eversheds for 22 years. His clients included Quintain, Lend Lease and Henderson and his practice focuses on real estate development and investment. He was ­formerly head of client solutions and part of the real estate senior ­management group.

Eversheds managing partner and former head of real estate Lee Ranson said: “GTM’s obviously much more a start-up for him. We’re sure there’s going to be opportunities to work together.”
Webb added: “A key factor is how to deliver and ­outsource work that ­supports big-ticket work.

On that work the only ­important thing is about delivery. I’m not expecting to bulk up and don’t want to do volume work.”
