The former sales chief at Battersea Power Station and a top Savills agent have taken up senior positions at boutique buying agency Hutton Bubear. Mark Hutton and Charlie Bubear have joined the firm founded by their respective partners, Catherine Hutton and Alice Bubear. The plan is to grow the formerly country-focused acquisition outfit into a multi-disciplinary operation with services including development consultancy and PCL sales. Hutton had been running the sales programme at Battersea Power Station since 2015; he previously held high-level roles at Douglas & Gordon and Savills. Bubear has joined – also as managing partner – from Savills, where he headed up sales for the Chelsea and Earl’s Court offices.
