He takes over from the current CEO, Nilesh Shah (no relation), who is leaving the company to take up an advisory role with Blick Rothenberg’s parent company Cogital Group. The outgoing CEO has been with the firm for exactly 30 years and leaves a team of almost 600 across five offices in central London.
Nimesh Shah said: “I am incredibly fortunate to have a strong team around me and inheriting a very solid business.
“Part of my role will be to build on the existing foundations and enhance the Blick Rothenberg brand further in the market. I am very much looking forward to the challenge of the new role and making a positive impact for our people, clients and the firm.”
He added: “When I joined Blick Rothenberg eight years ago, having relocated from Manchester, I did not expect I would be leading the firm one day. I am proud to have been given the support and the confidence to develop my career at Blick Rothenberg, enhancing both the profile of the firm and myself personally.
“In my role as CEO, I hope that I can give our people the same opportunities and support that have been afforded to me, and my own measure of success will be to see people develop their careers beyond mine.”
