He joins from GL Hearn where he was a director.

Phillip Hunt joins from Bennington Green, having previously worked at Rider Levett Bucknell. Cottle joins after passing his APC and will report into Jon Shears at Savills Wimbourne.
Nick Ireland, director in the building and project consultancy team at Savills Southampton, commented: “I am delighted to welcome these four new recruits to the team and the wealth of experience they bring with them. We are continuing to expand our presence in the south and south west in order to provide the best possible service for our clients and match the increasing levels of demand.”
