BNP Paribas Real Estate (BNPPRE) has appointed Mark Rothwell (pictured) as investment director.
Rothwell will be responsible for establishing BNPPRE’s investment agency in Bristol and will advise on all aspects of real estate investment in the South West.
Formerly head of investment at Alder King, Rothwell brings more than 20 years of experience of property consultancy, investment and asset management to the role.
Josh Gunn, head of Bristol office at BNPPRE, said: “Mark has an unparalleled knowledge of the region and the wider property market which will be an asset to our team.
“Bringing Mark on board will allow us to provide a deeper level of insight and support to our clients, identifying future growth opportunities’ across Bristol and the wider South West region.”
Rothwell added: “The COVID-19 pandemic saw the South West become an increasingly popular location for individuals looking for a change of lifestyle, which in turn has created a greater demand for high quality, sustainable residential and commercial projects to support the growing local populations.
“We are seeing vast investment into the region, made possible by strong transport links and recent infrastructure projects, which has helped attract the best businesses and talent to the area.
“I look forward to working closely with the highly experienced and well established Bristol team to support our clients during a very exciting period for the region.”
