He takes on the role previously held by managing director Rory Daly and his appointment will allow Rory Daly and executive chairman Paul Bassi to concentrate on the firm’s property investments, including their quoted vehicle REI plc, and developing the Bigwood brand following Bond Wolfe’s acquisition of the business in late 2006.

He spent five years gaining experience at commercial agents Christie & Co in Birmingham before joining Bond Wolfe where he has played an active role in developing the firm’s auction business into one of the UK’s leading auction houses.
Bond Wolfe executive chairman Paul Bassi said: “James’ promotion is recognition of the role he has played in the continued growth of the business.
“He will now be responsible for growing Bond Wolfe across the whole range of property services we offer, including the auction house and our property management business.”

“Bond Wolfe has a very exciting future ahead and I am proud that Paul and Rory have chosen me to take the business on to the next level.”
