Executive Director of London Estate, Grosvenor UK&I
In this episode, I get a chance to sit down with Amelia Bright, Executive Director of the London Estate for Grosvenor UK&I. Responsible for £5bn worth of assets in Mayfair and Belgravia, Amelia's 13-year career in Grosvenor has seen her take responsibility in asset management, investment, development and place-making in the UK and US.
Amelia has embodied the character of an accelerator; someone who was very conscious of her own development and drive to keep learning and to be challenged - she wouldn't admit it, but all the more impressive to have created and seized these opportunities within a single company, in such a short period of time.
