Commercial real estate consultancy OBI has recruited eight team members across a number of departments to support its growth strategy.
James Board has joined from developer Vita Group and is now part of OBI’s Transactions and Asset Management team with a particular focus on investment transactions, asset management and market analysis.
Also joining OBI’s Transactions and Asset Management team is Joe Denman, who will focus on business development and deal origination, and James Davies, a recent graduate from the University of Nottingham who was offered the role after completing a three-month internship with OBI in 2022.
In addition Elsa Ramos and Rogena Gordon have also begun roles in OBI’s Workplace Consultancy team to support on a raft of new client wins.
Ramos joins with previous experience as a project architect and as a senior designer, while Gordon rejoins OBI with a track record in multi-disciplinary design in both commercial and residential markets.
OBI has also bolstered its studio and content team. Liz Ainsworth will work as production assistant and has a background in animation, which further adds to OBI’s skillset.
Beth Kynaston, with background in textiles and theatre production, has taken a graphic designer position and works as part of the brand and marketing team.
Following on from a successful 2022, Gina Reiger has also joined OBI to focus on marketing, content creation and events.
“The market will undoubtedly be challenging during 2023 but we wanted to make sure we recruited strongly rather than taking a more defensive strategy.
“We have a wealth of resources at OBI and want to ensure we serve our clients in a premium manner in times which require an incredibly high quality service. The new hires have strengthened the business in a wide variety of disciplines and will ensure we are well placed to guide our clients through these more uncertain times.”
