Rob Hawkins joins team at ehB Reeves

We have added a new member to the ehB Reeves team, with more than 25 years’ experience in the sector.

Rob Hawkins has been formally appointed by ehB Reeves, having previously worked for the firm on a consultancy basis.

Rob has been working in the commercial property sector in a range of roles including agency work, acquisitions, property disposals, property management and consultancy.

He joins ehB Reeves as part of its ongoing ambitions to grow its business reach, expanding the agency sector and the management portfolio, which is currently valued in excess of £100 million.

“Having worked with the team before, we know each other very well. I’ve been working with them on a consultancy basis for the last six months and joining formally is all about developing that role,” said Rob.

“I have worked across the board in the commercial property sector – everything from agency and acquisition work to property management and consultancy – so I am bringing a wide range of experience to the table.

“I’m very much looking forward to this new role with the business as it looks to grow even further.”

Rob said the market in Warwickshire was still buoyant, despite the ongoing uncertainty over the potential impact of Brexit.

He said: “The market does dictate what we do and, in this moment, it is still very positive. Lots of deals are happening and I am sure there will be even better times ahead. It is a good time to grow an agency.

“Despite the uncertainty over Brexit, there is definitely still an appetite for good quality commercial property in the area.

“It is all connected to how much confidence people have in the market. Occupiers still need business premises, so there is still plenty of activity.”

Simon Hain, director at ehB Reeves, said: “We have ambitious plans to grow the agency and appointing Rob, with his many years of varied and valuable experience, is a step forward for that ambition.

“Rob has a proven track record in all areas of commercial property and we are sure this new arrangement will prove to be extremely beneficial for both parties.”

ehB Reeves was born from a merger between ehB Commercial and Reeves and Partners in July 2018.
