Cluttons marks 35 years in the Middle East

The milestone has been affirmed by the promotion of Harry Goodson-Wickes to head of country. The announcement comes at a time when experts in Bahrain are forecasting slow recovery from the political events in early 2011.

Cluttons continues to offer a full range of fully accredited real estate services in Bahrain, with an emphasis on effective property management to ensure maximum return for investors. With over 30 buildings under management at this time, landmark buildings include the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce, and the Almoayyed Tower.

Other services in the portfolio include strategic consultancy, valuations and rental and sales for commercial and residential units, which are offered to a client base that includes major regional banks and high profile global business groups.
Goodson-Wickes has enjoyed over eight years with Cluttons. Starting in London, he then moved to the Muscat office in 2006 before taking on the role to establish the new Cluttons office in Abu Dhabi in early 2010. His promotion to Head of country for Bahrain underlines his commitment to the company, and ability to both motivate teams and optimise management structures.

His role will be to adapt to the restricted real estate context, and drive Cluttons' business forward in an innovative manner. Goodson Wickes' promotion follows the departure of Tim Glover, who helped establish Cluttons as a credible force in Bahrain over the past four years.
Recent reports have forecast tentative economic growth in Bahrain for 3% in 2011, less than the 4.5% seen by the Finance Minister in March 2011. Bahrain has been slowly picking up from the global financial crisis and socio economic unrest that rocked the Kingdom in February and March.
In keeping with the current mood of optimism and forward movement, Cluttons' 35th year will be marked with a number of networking and community events, with a focus on engaging local Bahraini business and schools.
