May-Brown (main picture), who is also Head of Private Wealth Intelligence, has been with Knight Frank for 15 years, working in International Residential prior to spending seven years in the Gulf where she established the Middle East Private Wealth team.
May-Brown has played a key role in some of the firm’s trophy instructions and asset sales, including a 1.4 million hectare land portfolio sale in Australia and development consultancy on Atlantis, The Royal Residences – the first super-prime development in Dubai. She is currently working on the sale of The Rothbury Estate, 9,500 acres in Northumberland.
Tim Hyatt, Head of Residential at Knight Frank and Chair of the UK Residential Board, says: “I am delighted to welcome Sarah onto the UK Residential Board, as a true expert in the UHNW and wealth intelligence space.
“Her position on the board is testament to her deep understanding of global wealth trends and the impact she has made in her time with the firm. It also demonstrates our commitment to the prime and super prime markets.
“Sarah’s knowledge and experience working in our Private Office will further help guide our strategy around adding value to our super prime clients.”
May-Brown adds: “I hope to bring a different perspective of being on the front line of agency, coupled with a good understanding of operational and data processes.
“I am hugely passionate about championing young and diverse careers, as well as being an LGBTQ+ ally.
“Through my work with the Capital Markets business I hope to further drive collaboration and cross border capital between our residential and commercial offerings.”
