Multi-sector Development & Investment
Rob set up BrayMann in 2008, the agency which within a year became Bray Fox Smith. His primary focus is on the development, purchase, sale and leasing of commercial, residential and mixed-use schemes across the UK.
Despite his youthful demeanour, Rob has 30 years’ experience as a commercial property agent in central London working on nationwide schemes and he retains a role on several developments on planning, design and leasing strategy. Previous roles include Head of National Development at Cushman & Wakefield and BNP Paribas. Most lately Rob set up a new division, Bray Fox Smith Living, to serve clients in the various residential development markets ranging across private residential, affordable housing, care homes & healthcare, student accommodation, etc.
He lives in Hertfordshire where he enjoys running around the countryside with Nya, the springer spaniel, dashing between sporting fixtures with his children, and spending too much time at Tring Rugby Club where he coaches (sometimes plays) and sits on the main committee dealing with sponsorship and social matters.
He is an avid foodie and cook and was due to make his television debut on a Channel 4 cookery show. That is now on the cutting room floor, yet Rob did manage to appear in a Laithwaites wine advert and Sun Seeker documentary! He has had a photo exhibited at Heathrow and also enjoys country pursuits, rugby and cricket. He is a keen traveller and has seen much of the world, most notably 2 British & Irish Lions triumphs (alas as spectator not player) in South Africa and Oz.
