Top 12 International and Strategic Advisors
‘We’re research-driven,’ says Hugo Thistlethwayte of his specialist department at Savills. The international residential head has ‘the most enviable contact books in global property’, through which he ‘feels the pulse of world wealth’.
Thistlethwayte joined Savills’ Knightsbridge office in 1994 to sell flats and new developments in prime central London. In 2000, the company identified a need for an advisory service looking after buying clients’ interests across the whole market, so Thistlethwayte co-established Prime Purchase, the firm’s buying subsidiary.
In 2015 he moved to his current role, where he oversees ‘some of the most exciting development projects in the world’.
