Bidwells has named Max Bryan as its new head of science and technology. He replaces David Williams, who left the consultancy last year to become commercial director at Harwell Campus in Oxfordshire. Bryan has been with Bidwells since 2018. He leads its office and laboratory agency team from Cambridge.

Before joining the property consultancy in 2018, Max was a Partner within the London & South East Business Space team at Cushman and Wakefield. He now leads Bidwells’ Office and Laboratory Agency from Cambridge and will remain in this position alongside his new role.

Max said: “We’ve got one of the very best science and technology teams in property with Bidwells playing a leading role in creating and developing some of the world’s spearheading research clusters.”

“I’m relishing the opportunity to help develop this offer for the business further at a time when the life sciences real estate market is seeing unprecedented growth and opportunity as international investors enter the market in Cambridge and Oxford.”  

Saul Western, Head of Bidwells’ Commercial division, said:

“Max has negotiated deals on behalf of the largest tech companies in the world, as well as supporting scaling R&D businesses in the Cambridge cluster, so he has a great insight into all sides of the deal, as well as really getting what makes these research-led businesses tick.”
