Jones has over five years’ experience in hotels and licensed property brokerage. He worked in London for three years at marketing, technology and date firm CACI before moving to Birmingham to join a leading specialist advisor for buying and selling businesses.
In 2017 he was a finalist for Birmingham Young Professional of the Year in the property and construction category.
Jones, who will be based in LSH’s Birmingham office, said: “I’m excited to join Lambert Smith Hampton where I’ll be working closely with a highly skilled national hotel specialist team. Simon Stevens, David Creamore, Martin Davis, Dan Whittaker and Hugh Anderson are all industry leaders and very respected by operators within the sector.
“I’ll be working hard to advise on a variety of transactions including independent, corporate, single assets, and portfolios, and developing relationships with existing and new clients.”
He added: “LSH has departments across the entire property spectrum, from building consultancy, lease advisory, planning and development, auctions, property finance and business rates, and I believe sitting closely to all these teams will help me develop my skillsets.”
Simon Stevens, LSH Hotels director, said: ““Hotels is a growth sector within LSH. Our team knows the market and our exceptionally experienced professional hotel brokers and RICS valuers are specialists in their field.
“Charles is a very welcome addition to our hotels team. His knowledge of the market and the sector in general is impressive, as are the results he has achieved in completing many hotel transactions.”
