Leading property agent Max Bryan joins Bidwells this week to head up its Office and R&D Agency team in Cambridge.
Max joins Bidwells’ seven-strong Cambridge Business Space Agency (BSA) which in August secured top position in property magazine EG’s East of England Agency League Table for the ninth successive year.
He will champion the firm’s science and technology work. Bidwells is currently acting on more than 10m sq ft of science and technology space across the Golden Triangle of Cambridge, Oxford and London.
Max has 15 years’ experience of advising science and technology occupiers, business park owners and investors across the South East of England. In Cambridge, he recently advised global tech giant Amazon in its acquisition of 100,000 sq ft of office and R&D space at Cambridge’s global tech cluster at CB1 and Chinese multinational telecoms provider Huawei, helping them purchase a 513-acre development site in Sawston, South Cambridgeshire which will become the telecoms operator’s key UK research and development facility.
He also acted on the largest laboratory life sciences transaction in Cambridge this year to date for Lonza. Max joins from Cushman & Wakefield.
“I’m thrilled to be joining such a well-respected agency team“, Max said. “Bidwells is synonymous with the Golden Triangle of Cambridge, Oxford and London and respected across the industry for its deep understanding of the knowledge-intensive businesses across it. I look forward to adding to this mix, bringing insight from my experiences advising R&D occupiers in Cambridge and across the south-east.”
Head of Business Space Agency at Bidwells, Dick Wise, Partner, said: “We’re on track for another good year and Max’s appointment further strengthens the BSA team at a time of significant opportunity. Max is no stranger to working on high profile transactions, acting for a variety of businesses from start-up, scale up to global corporates and knows just how investors think about the Life Science clusters within the ‘Golden Triangle’.
“He also offers the whole firm a unique perspective on how the likes of Amazon and Huawei are thinking about their property and the future direction of the sector. He’s a great fit for our business as we continue growing our presence across the emerging Oxford-Cambridge Arc.”
Another recent recruit to Bidwells’ BSA team is graduate Jack Vestey.
Over 80% of Bidwells’ work is concentrated in the ‘Golden Triangle’ of Oxford, Cambridge and London.
