Jonathan Maher

Development Director

I run our London office, which is the perfect place for me to create and nurture many of our key relationships.

My goal is for us to become a trusted partner for our funders, occupiers, and landowners. I find that business is so much more fun when you can be transparent, only making promises that you deliver on.

My background is agency, so I know how valuable those connections are; they're our life blood. But I don’t aim to run a big team of contacts, more a very select few, with some competitive rotation to keep things fresh and hungry. It’s a competitive market place and we need our man on point if we are to maximise value for our partners.

I enjoy coordinating our leasing activities and building a strong rapport with occupiers, expediting the letting of our stock. This builds upon my experience working for Sainsbury’s providing strategic disposal and acquisitions advice.

I’m really motivated by the transforming power that the scale of our developments have, providing wider benefits for the local community in all sorts of ways. Our commitment has always been the same; to be your trusted partner, to be innovative in providing the best solutions for each challenge.

It’s personally very rewarding to be a key part of the Bericote team; a team who outperform other global developers in the large scale distribution space.

I am a water-baby at heart and in my spare time I love being around water; either boating, swimming, diving, paddle boarding, fishing, surfing or skiing, I love it all, but especially if it’s with my wife and children.
