Ed Sugden

Ed Sugden, who now plies his trade in Savills' country house department, started his career as a chartered surveyor at Cluttons in West Sussex.

He moved to John D Wood in Oxford and, later, Property Vision, where he stayed for 14 years and led its country arm, before arriving at Savills in 2013, where he is now a director and chair of the executive committee. Having more than 25 years’ industry experience, Sugden specialises in private, off-market sales, with a clientele of aristocrats, celebrities, captains of industry, entrepreneurs and a range of international HNWs.

One of his biggest challenges to date was saving a palatial Grade I-listed house with land, for a client, and putting together an estate with more than 1,000 acres. Sugden worked in tandem with ‘an incredible team’ of advisers to secure wider planning consent before selling it.

‘It’s a wholly consuming, but enjoyable career,’ he says. ‘Differing challenges and conundrums lead to a different day, every day.’ His grandfather and Ireland rugby captain, Mark Sugden, is his personal hero. ‘He was a gentleman in the real sense of the word.’
