Rapleys is delighted to announce the appointment of Jeremy Day as Partner.

Jeremy takes up a lead role in the Corporate & Investor Management business. He will advise and support represented clients and develop the corporate service lines offered by the practice on a nationwide basis.  He brings a new dimension to the team and will help drive forward Rapleys’ strategy to cement their position as one of the UK’s leading independent property and planning consultants.

Jeremy moved from JLL to Capita in 2014 and has now started his new role at Rapleys.

Jeremy, a well known figure in the field of corporate occupiers, was previously a partner at King Sturge where he led their corporate real estate team through its merger with JLL in 2011 and then focused on JLL’s UK corporate occupier clients. At Capita, he drove developments, particularly in the field of utility companies and large land-owning corporates. Jeremy is an active member of the RICS Corporate Occupier Group, past Chair of the Federation of Corporate Real Estate, and an associate lecturer at Oxford Brookes University. He has regularly lobbied on matters affecting occupiers, including lease accounting, service charges and energy/environmental regulations.

Jeremy commented: “I am excited to be joining Rapleys who are a leading UK private practice with an excellent reputation and numerous long-standing client relationships. This feels very much like coming full circle after 5 years in larger organisations and I am confident there is great demand for astute real estate advice delivered by experienced professionals within a partnership culture. I see clients benefiting enormously from our joined-up support in an ever-changing real estate world.”

Rapleys Senior Partner Robert Clarke confirmed: “We are delighted Jeremy is joining Rapleys. He brings a wealth of knowledge, contacts and experience in occupier and management services and will play a pivotal role in the expansion of our business. Jeremy joins at a time when Rapleys are actively developing our service offering and follows other recent high profile appointments. We continue to search out good people in pursuit of delivering excellent service to our clients”.
