New Head of Commercial in Newbury
Jo Keene, an Associate Partner in the specialist Infrastructures Team at Carter Jonas, has moved to the firm’s Newbury office, to head
up the Commercial Team, with effect from 15 June 2009.
Jo’s principle role, as a member of the Infrastructures Team, was to grow and develop commercial opportunities with clients, including Network Rail. Recent projects have included a feasibility study into bridge structures around Battersea Dogs Home and rent reviews on train depots. In her new role in Newbury, Jo will deal with all aspects of commercial agency work and corporate real estate, though she will also continue to work on Infrastructure projects.
Having studied at Oxford Brookes University, Jo joined the Commercial Division at Dreweatt Neate in 1997, but left in 2002 to build up her own successful company specialising in corporate real estate services. She sold this company in 2007 and rejoined Dreweatt Neate, prior to its merger with Carter Jonas.
Commented Jo: ‘This is an exciting time for Carter Jonas and I am delighted to be joining the well-established Commercial Team in Newbury. I will assist in further developing our business along the A34 corridor and beyond’.
