William Beardmore-Gray

Spear’s Review

Replacing a lifer can be daunting. Though when William Beardmore-Gray was announced as Knight Frank’s new group chairman – replacing 38-year veteran Alistair Elliott – he had far fewer reasons to be nervous.

It wasn’t just that the qualified surveyor had also racked up his own decades of experience at the firm (having joined in 1991). He had also led some of its most successful initiatives in his own right, including a global consultancy offering (aimed at occupiers) from Knight Frank’s London headquarters.

Under Beardmore-Gray’s leadership, the firm remains highly influential – not just as a top-tier player in commercial real estate, but also for its annual Wealth Report, which is a crucial tool for tracking the changing shape of global wealth.
