Knight Frank adds seven recruits to healthcare team

Global property advisor Knight Frank has expanded its healthcare team with seven appointments.

James McKelvie joins as a partner and brings three decades of healthcare experience in surveying including agency, insolvency and valuation across the UK and mainland Europe. He will work on portfolio valuations for acquisitions or refinances as well as large scale projects within the corporate healthcare sector.

Kodie Brook joins as a surveyor from Sanderson Weatherall, where he trained as a healthcare surveyor for two years alongside completing his master’s in real estate at University College of Estate Management.

Andrew Sage, Sara Horton and Joe Brame join the healthcare team from elsewhere in the business.

Sage has been appointed to the corporate healthcare valuation team as an Associate, utilising his background in running large fund mandates, now focusing on the valuation of healthcare portfolios, having originally joined Knight Frank’s valuation and advisory department in 2018.

Horton joined Knight Frank in 2014 as part of the investment lettings and management team to set up this new service line in the Birmingham office and completing a master’s degree in Real Estate. In June last year, she joined the healthcare team to work on disposals and acquisitions across a spectrum of healthcare assets.

Brame joins as a senior analyst working in the healthcare team, forming a part of the development consultancy team having transitioned from the commercial research team where he had worked as lead researcher in healthcare. Brame previously worked in a strategic development role at one of the UK’s largest health insurance firms. 

These appointments follow two previous additions to the healthcare team with Rory Addison joining as a surveyor following three years at Avison Young and Megan Wright who joined from J Safra Sarasin to work as business support coordinator.

Julian Evans, partner and head of healthcare at Knight Frank, said: “There is great growth potential for the UK healthcare property investment market, with the demand for best-in-class properties and businesses only set to increase as the population continues to age and Knight Frank are excellently positioned to advise investors and operators alike. We are excited to be starting 2023 with such a robust and dynamic healthcare team, strengthened by these seven additions who bring with them a wealth of experience from a mixture of backgrounds in healthcare property and other asset classes.”

Knight Frank’s healthcare team now employs 23 people and annually advises on £12 billion of healthcare assets.
