Masterchef finalist Billy Wright joins Savills retail & leisure team
Savills has added a new flavour to its retail and leisure team with the appointment of Masterchef finalist and property surveyor Billy Wright, who joins the firm as a restaurant specialist based at its global headquarters in London.
Wright founded MPW Developments and also worked as a surveyor specialising in restaurant acquisitions for Randall Commercial in London, before reaching the final of Masterchef in 2016. With fellow finalist Jack Layer, he then launched ‘Billy and Jack’, a creative food company offering consultancy services such as menu development to restaurant operators and running hugely popular supper clubs and restaurant takeovers.
At Savills, Wright will work with the Central London retail team and national retail and leisure division, using his trend-led knowledge of food and the restaurant sector to advise both occupiers and landlords in the capital and beyond.
Wright said: “Working in the restaurant sector for the last two years has been incredibly interesting and given me a completely new perspective on the industry. I am excited to be combining the specialist knowledge gained through doing so with my property expertise to support restaurant operators and landlords in this new role.”
