As an associate director at Savills’ private office, Julien Ward works closely with David Forbes as a ‘single point of contact into the wider world of Savills’. The purpose of the division, says the former Credit Suisse relationship manager, is to ‘concentrate on building relationships, on client enquiries and situations’.
Operating both as a part of and distinct from Savills, the private office is able to assist with a wide range of client enquiries .
‘The scope of work changes day to day,’ Ward explains. ‘One moment I’ll be in discussion about possible commercial acquisitions, the next talking about a residential transaction for someone’s child.’
