Knight Frank boosts flexible office solutions team

Knight Frank has appointed Wumi Eyiangho (pictured above) and Oliver Levesley as commercial property agents to its flexible office solutions team.

In their new roles, they will advise clients on their office requirements as hybrid working continues to reshape workplace strategies. 

They will work closely with Amanda Lim, head of flexible office solutions, and Richard Proctor, head of London tenant representation, to help clients identify the flexible office spaces best suited to their requirements.

Wumi joins from Rubix Real Estate, where he worked as a senior tenant representative with a focus on flexible leasing. 

Prior to this, Wumi spent two years with Colliers as a serviced office broker where he was responsible for advising tenants on flexible and serviced office solutions. 

Since joining Knight Frank, Wumi has already advised post-production film editing company, Shift Post, on the letting of its first London hub at Canvas Offices, 27 Corsham Street, Shoreditch. 

Meanwhile, Oliver joins from Victor Harris Commercial, where he was a senior agent specialising in the acquisition of flexible office space. 

Before this, he worked on acquisitions and disposals of West End and City offices for SHB10 limited.

Commenting on the new appointments, Amanda said: “Wumi and Oliver bring valuable industry experience and sector knowledge to the team, enabling us to continue providing specialist insight to clients around flexible workspace solutions. 

“We have seen a rapid uptick in interest levels from all types of businesses, including fast-growth tech and life sciences companies, global law firms, insurance companies, and private equity firms. 

“Demand is characterised by a flight to quality, as occupiers are after a workplace experience that fosters creativity, innovation, and collaboration in a bid to attract and retain top talent.”

According to Knight Frank, 47% of UK businesses expect to include a greater amount of flexible, serviced, or coworking space in their real estate strategies.
