Trevor Brown
Trevor Brown BSc

Consultant

trevor.brown@dexterbrown.com After graduating from Leicester in 1978, Trevor spent several years in the Estates Department of Royal London Mutual and then Cornhill Insurance, primarily involved with investment purchases, sales and funding packages. In 1980 Skinners Chartered Surveyors commenced trading with Trevor spending 18 years as a Partner in the City of London office, where he acted in a Fund Manager capacity for several institutional clients, also offering consultancy advice. In 1998 Skinners was merged with Catella Property Consultants in Mayfair and Trevor became The Director of Asset Management. In January 2002 Trevor, together with several key members of the then management team, decided to relocate from London to Milton Keynes, establishing Dexter Brown as a niche management company. It follows that whilst Dexter Brown is only three years old Trevor has worked alongside several team members for considerably longer. Trevor’s experience in the institutional investment market enables management clients to benefit from an investment overview, and the potential identification of value adding opportunities.
