TRIO OF WELL-KNOWN SOUTH EAST OFFICE AGENTS JOIN HOLLIS HOCKLEY TO SPEARHEAD WESTERN CORRIDOR EXPANSION

Rhodri Shaw, Chris Barrs, and Jeremy Metcalfe join traditionally M3-focused specialist as Equity Partners.

Chris Barrs is leaving Avison Young and Rhodri Shaw and Jeremy Metcalfe are leaving BNP Paribas Real Estate to join Hollis Hockley.

The trio will spearhead expansion of the Western Corridor market, with a Reading office set to be opened shortly to join the Farnborough and Basingstoke offices.

Chris Barrs will be opening the new Reading office, with Jeremy Metcalfe and Rhodri Shaw covering the M3 and M4 corridors, to augment the Basingstoke operation with Andrew Newman, and the Farnborough unit with Neil Hockley and Jon Hollis.

As a consequence, the team will be providing one of the biggest portfolios of office and industrial floor space across the Western Corridor market.
