Experience


Jonathan graduated in Communications with a Minor in Publishing from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Having joined Savills (Hong Kong) Limited in July of 2006, he began as a management trainee for the Investment Department and was eventually transitioned to be a part of the Commercial En-Bloc and Development Site Sales team.

In his earlier years with Investment from 2007 to 2012, he was part of the project teams that successfully disposed some of the most significant deals in the market during that period, namely, [1] 68 Yee Wo Street (in 2007 for HK$1.56 billion), [2] Trade Square (in 2008 for HK$1.518 billion), [3] the Merrill Lynch Portfolio (in 2009 for HK$1.59 billion), [4] Fitfort (in 2009 for HK$935,000,000), and [5] 169 Electric Road (twice, in 2010 for HK$2.25 billion, and in 2012 for HK$3.15 billion).

After concluding a further HK$15 billion worth of transactions from 2012-2014, Jonathan was appointed to head the newly-formed Projects and Business Integration (PBI) team with the Investment Sales department in 2015 to reinvigorate the Investment Sales department by bringing fresh ideas to clients’ investment strategies. In 2015, this team was responsible for approximately HK$6 billion of transactions. Since then from 2016-2018 YTD, the PBI team completed over HK$35 billion of transactions averaging over 15 deals per year.

In 2019, Jonathan was asked to head the newly formed Investment Private Office Department, which primarily focuses on the relationship management of high net worth families, institutional funds, and boutique developers while also providing disposal services include private treaty and tender (public or private).
