A trio of senior figures at BNP Paribas Real Estate have left the business as part of a round of redundancies. 

Peter Hunt, Antony Thesiger and Will Moss all worked for Strutt & Parker before BNP Paribas bought the agency last year.

Thesiger headed up Strutt & Parker’s West End investment team while Hunt was his counterpart for the City. Moss founded the agency’s central London retail team in 2012.

BNP Paribas made the acquisition last year in a bid to grow its own service offerings in the rural and residential sectors. While those arms of the business kept their Strutt & Parker identity following the deal, its commercial property branch rebranded under the BNP Paribas Real Estate name.

An inside source told Property Week that the changes had been made because the commercial property arm had not performed as strongly as hoped, though the other parts of the business were doing well.

Property Week believes around 20 redundancies have been made in total.

BNP Paribas Real Estate declined to comment.
