Rupert took over as Chairman of Prime Purchase in 2015. With more than three decades in the residential property business at Savills, one of the world’s largest real estate firms and parent company of Prime Purchase, Rupert brings a wealth of experience to the business. A Cambridge Law and English graduate, with an external surveying degree from Reading University, Rupert was Chairman and CEO of Savills (L&P) Limited for 13 years, and was on the main board of Savills PLC for 15 years, following which he was Director in charge of Global Residential. He also holds a number of non-executive positions both within and outside the property world. Rupert says that during his time on the Board at Savills, the best client testimonials the company received related to the Prime Purchase team, so he was delighted to have the opportunity to establish a more hands-on approach with the business.
