BNP Paribas

BNP Paribas Real Estate has bolstered its national markets office agency team with a new senior associate director, as it looks to expand its presence across Greater London and the South East.

Joining from property consultancy Vail Williams, Elliot McNish brings eight years of experience to the position.

The incoming director has worked for a string of heavyweight clients such as Legal & General, McKay Securities, CLS Holdings and Palace Capital.
