KLM Real Estate has restructured its leadership team following the retirement of founding partner Ian Kitchen.
Dominic Brady and Ed Gambarini have been promoted to equity partners at the company.
Ian Kitchen founded Kitchen La Frenais Morgan as a focused niche retail agency with Max La Frenais and Nick Morgan. It became known as KLM and rebranded in Autumn 2021 to KLM Real Estate.
James Andrews of KLM Real Estate said: “This is a bittersweet moment for the firm. Ian has lived and breathed KLM since its creation on February 1st 1990 and through his stewardship we have become a major force in the world of retail and leisure property advisory.
“We have a unique perspective and unrivalled depth of knowledge for an independent firm, working in every sub-sector of the retail market and delivering trusted investment, occupational and development advice to investors and occupiers.
“We look to continue our success by building on Ian’s legacy and we are delighted to add Dom and Ed to our leadership group, bringing with them a fresh dynamism and impetus. They have both made a great contribution to KLM already and that is only set to grow”
