James joined Caisson as Acquisitions Manager in May 2018. He is responsible for the sourcing and acquisition of investments across the UK, and works closely with both Caisson’s investors and its transaction closure team.
Prior to joining Caisson, James began his professional career in Central and Eastern Europe, working at Knight Frank in Poland in 2007, and CBRE in Romania and Hungary from 2011 to 2014. During his time there, he worked in the Capital Markets and Valuation & Advisory departments.
