Liz Locke departs Omni for One Hyde Park



Liz Locke has joined the Candy & Candy core sales team at One Hyde Park for the final phase of apartment sales at the prestigious Knightsbridge address.


Liz departs her role as Business Development Director at Omni Capital – the CPC Group owned bridging finance company – to join the sales force responsible for some of the most record breaking real estate sales in recent times.


“Liz has an extremely versatile skill set and a natural flair for sales so inviting Liz to become part of the One Hyde Park sales team is an exciting development for her and the One Hyde Park project.” commented Nick Candy, CEO of Candy & Candy.


Over £1.4 billion of sales have now been achieved at One Hyde Park and fewer than 20 units now remain. A series of new show apartments have been released at the development after several were purchased outright and the final retail outlet – the first UK premises for Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank – is due to open in November 2011.


“I’m very excited to be working on such an iconic project in what will no doubt be a very exciting final phase,” said Liz. “I hope to apply not only my experience working in investment banking but also the work undertaken to build the Omni Capital business to date, to complement the existing sales strategy at One Hyde Park. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time working with the Omni Capital team and look forward to the new challenges ahead.”


Colin Sanders, CEO of Omni Capital, commented: “As one of the earliest members of the Omni Capital team, Liz has played a significant part in our success to date. On behalf of her colleagues at Omni, I would like to take this opportunity to extend my sincere thanks, and to wish her well as she transitions into her new, prestigious role.”


Residents have now begun moving into the 80* apartments situated in the prime Knightsbridge location bordering Hyde Park and Sloane Street, which are also the first European Residences of Mandarin Oriental and are serviced by a dedicated team of 60 specialist Mandarin Oriental staff.


The development is owned by Project Grande (Guernsey) Limited – a joint venture consortium between Guernsey based development company, CPC Group, and Waterknights (owned by the Prime Minister of Qatar, His Excellency, Sheik Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabr Al-Thani).


* Planning was received for 86 apartments, but the final number is likely to be 80 due to some buyers choosing to merge apartments together.
