Tew takes over as Knight Frank office head

Building consultancy partner Ian Tew taking on the role brings to an end a 12-year spell heading the Newcastle office for Peter Bowden, who will retire later this year.

Tew takes on the top role from April onwards. He began his commercial property career at DTZ, anhas 28 years’ experience as a chartered building surveyor, with 24 of those spent at Knight Frank where he has established a building consultancy service working across the UK.

Bowden will continue with his role in Knight Frank’s property and asset management team, before retiring later in the year.

He said: “As we prepare to start the new financial year, it is right that I hand over the head of office role, whilst I continue with the day job, so that business planning for the next year is carried-out by those taking things forward.

“I’m absolutely delighted to say that Ian will pick up the reins and I know all of the team will give him their full support because that is the way in this office. No politics, no factions, just bloody good, skilful people doing a fantastic job across the board.”

Tew said of his appointment: “Peter will be a hard act to follow – he is a much-loved leader and colleague and known for his astute decision making, warm approach to people, depth of knowledge and his ability to support his team well, no matter what the challenges that we encounter.

“I am excited for the journey ahead and looking forward to working closely with my colleagues to build on our success.”
