GCW has announced that Philippe Micheal has been promoted to equity partner. He takes on the role from 1st April, with the remit to oversee and head up the firm’s people and culture, including its new ESG agenda.

Micheal joined GCW in 2013 and has worked at every level of the business and now becomes the firm’s sixth equity partner at the expanding company, which this year celebrates its 35th anniversary.

Duncan Kite, joint managing partner, said: “I’m very excited about Phil’s well-deserved promotion to GCW’s partnership. His journey with us from Surveyor to Partner demonstrates our ongoing commitment to nurturing and developing talent and will assist in continuing to provide a first-class service offer. Alongside the strategic advice we provide to our clients, we want to utilise our platform to better promote ESG and sustainability principles in the commercial property sector.”

Micheal said: “GCW is already recognised as one of the more progressive advisors in the sector and our new Sustainability Action Plan outlines our commitment to putting sustainability, in its widest sense, centre stage.”

The principals of GCW’s Sustainability Action Plan, published in January, which has been spearheaded by Micheal, will form an integral part of his role within the business. The plan covers such issues as reducing GCW’s environmental impact, purpose, and culture, alongside inclusivity and diversity.

Micheal will also be ‘Head of People’, where he will help support and drive performance of the existing and growing team, that has now increased to a total of 25.

He added: “I’ve never felt more confident about the blend of youth, experience, and enthusiasm we have in the business. We have assembled an exceptional group of people and there’s a real togetherness in the team.

“One of our biggest assets as a business, alongside our holistic approach and our tenacity, is our people. It’s what makes GCW a great place to work and drives us forward as a company.”
