James Shanks B.Sc. (Hons) MRICS
Managing Director

After working in corporate real estate for over 20 years across the US, UK and Asia and now as an independent tenant advisor and tenant representative, I am still passionate about the service we provide and the clients we serve.

As a Chartered Surveyor I understand the need to balance rigour and auditable process along with the art required in our industry to take a boardroom concept to a fully functioning enviable workplace.

I have been lucky enough to work with commercial real estate professionals in some of the worlds leading tech firms which, through strong relationships and a collaborative approach has enabled Franklin Shanks to redefine leave flexibility and the concept of a lessor as a partner as opposed to a road block

Outside of work I am a keen albeit inexperienced sailor and a passionate fan of horse racing.
