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 Poland in 2007, undertaking placements at Knight Frank and Colliers in their Valuation & Advisory Departments. After graduating from Nottingham Trent University and an extensive backpacking trip around the world, James returned to Eastern Europe, working at CBRE in Romania and Hungary from 2011 to 2014. During his time there, he worked in the Capital Markets and Valuation & Advisory Departments. Returning to the UK in 2014, James joined Cushman & Wakefield in the Central London Valuation Team, providing valuation and transaction advice for investment funds and banks, generating business, and managing some of the team’s key accounts.
This broad skills base, both in terms of sector and department, allows James to come up to speed on an investment’s underlying value and return metrics, enabling Caisson to move swiftly on appropriate acquisitions.
