Bruce Gillingham Pollard are delighted to have been appointed by Landsec to join their new retail leasing agent panel, working across the hospitality portfolio which includes food & beverage, fitness, leisure and hotels.
The panel, which has been formed as part of Landsec’s new operating model launched late last year, seeks to “redefine the traditional retail leasing agent model”. BGP are one of 6 retained companies, where each agent will work collaboratively with Landsec’s brand team to “service new and existing retail customers whilst supporting the business in finding new brands to curate the right brand mix across its destinations”.
The move is aiming to reflect Landsec’s efforts to drive performance and build a more “customer-centric” approach, and will challenge the traditional, location-led agent structure by aligning advisers to specific brands and sectors. It says that creates a more “transparent, sustainable model encouraging a partnership-led, portfolio wide approach”.
Bruce Gillingham Pollard managing director, Tracey Pollard, “ we are delighted to continue our long-standing relationship with Landsec and believe their customer-centric approach to leasing is very much aligned to our own strategy across the F&B and Leisure sectors. We’ve always specialised in taking a concept-led approach to identifying the right operators who are a fit with a specific location, its demographics, and the aspirations of the landlords. We track F&B and leisure operators as they develop and have been involved in several launching into the UK regions following debuts in London.
