RPC was originally founded in 1991 by Robert Pratt, who has over 30 years of agency and professional experience across the entire retail sector.
Robert previously held senior positions at Hillier Parker (now CBRE), MEPC and Aureole Investments.
He is a Fellow of The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, and an Associate of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. He is also a member of the RICS Independent Experts & Arbitrators Panels, the Pubs Code Panel of Arbitrators, and the RICS Commercial Rental Evaluation Panel dealing with Covid-19 disputes.
Robert’s clients include major property companies and national multiple retailers, for whom he provides strategic asset management, agency and professional advice. Recently, such advice has included the re-purposing of redundant retail space, and the re-structure of occupational leases to better reflect rapidly changing market conditions.
