Managing Director, Cobham

Your Grosvenor Story

I’ve been with Grosvenor since 2004. I joined as a trainee at our Hinchley Wood office straight after my A-Levels. I’ve always really enjoyed being part of a bigger team and all my colleagues make this a special place to work. My sister, Claire, joined the business in 2020 and is my ‘right-hand’, we’ve got a great relationship which is just as well, as we sit next to each other in our Cobham office. Our Dad, Ian Davies, first started the business in 2002 and Claire and I were able to buy him out, allowing him to retire and us to take ownership of the future vision and strategy for the business. I love how the job varies from week to week, home to home, and person to person. No two deals are the same and we can always add value through great communication, advice and customer service.

Tell us about you outside of work

I live in Cobham. My daughter Florence goes to school nearby. She’s a smashing little person who I love spending my free time with. My main hobby is cycling, mainly off-road adventures, and I’m an active member of the local cycling community via Giro in Esher. My other passion is cooking, I’ve got a Big Green Egg and an Ooni Pizza oven so I’m often cooking outdoors regardless of the weather.

Favourite bit of the house

Always the kitchen for me, the opportunity to combine gadgets, cooking, entertaining, and of course, that’s where the drinks are kept!

Fun fact

I’ve got a big “shark-bite” scar across my stomach from a lifesaving operation I had in Turkey when I was just 6 months old. Not fun, but pretty cool, I think.
