Laura leads a team of asset managers, based in the London office, with over £3.0bn assets to manage across the UK, in all three main asset classes – offices, logistics and retail, on behalf of international clients.
With 17 years’ experience, of which 15 years have been with CBRE IM, Laura has held a number of investment management roles within the business and was appointed head of UK asset management in 2018. Defining the role as the first incumbent, Laura has built and developed a high performance team that delivers excellent service to both clients and occupiers.
Laura is passionate about cities, having lived in New York and now London, and developing places within them for people to thrive. She has led repositioning projects such as Angel Central (a retail destination in Islington), 10 Brindley Place (the largest office refurbishment in Birmingham to complete in 2022) and Atlantic House (a City of London office refurbishment). Wellbeing, creativity, technology, adaptability and long term sustainability are at the heart of her projects.
As a mother of two young children, Laura has always been a strong advocate of diversity, equity and inclusion and has led a wellbeing and mental health working group at CBRE IM, which is all part of a wider initiative to provide a more inclusive environment for the team to work, learn and grow.
