Cluttons Promotes Its Youngest Equity Partner

Cluttons Promotes Its Youngest Equity Partner
06 December 2021

Cluttons has promoted its youngest equity partner, Nicholas Potter.

At 38, Nicholas is the youngest equity partner (EP) and he is also the first person in a non-fee earning role to have equity.

Nicholas joined Cluttons in 2013 as a financial controller and was made finance director in 2017. He will join four other equity partners at the property consultancy.


Driving Younger Talent


James Gray, Managing Partner at Cluttons, said: “We are also keen to highlight to our people that you have the potential to become an equity partner regardless of your role and length of service. We reward our people for their success based on behaviours and commitment to the Cluttons values as well as commercial contribution. We have built a business that respects the experience of long-standing professionals but that also welcomes and drives younger and diverse talent capable of taking on big roles while providing a different way of thinking.

"Our message is clear, you can build a career at Cluttons no matter what your role is and that includes the possibility of equity partnership.”

Nicholas played a key role in the transfer of the Cluttons Middle East business in June 2018 and he recently helped oversee the setup and launch of the Manchester office working alongside new head Charlie Ardern.

Nicholas said: “I am immensely proud to be welcomed into Cluttons’ equity partnership. It has been an amazing experience working alongside the leadership team on key transformation projects over the last four years and I am thrilled that my hard work and contribution to the business success has been recognised in this way. It is particularly rewarding because it highlights the strong inclusive culture Cluttons has for all of its people across both fee-earning and non-fee-earning roles.”
