Jasmax CEO Sjoerd Post says, “Anna is a highly accomplished designer with varied international experience, who will strengthen Jasmax’s interiors expertise and deliver design excellence on large-scale, high-profile projects across the practice. We look forward to Anna bringing her remarkable attention to craft and detail to the fore.”

Chris Farhi makes the move to Bayleys

This means they are gathering substantial volumes of transactional data and information across the whole market on a daily basis. Chris’ role will be to leverage this more effectively – particularly for the benefit of Bayleys’ clients in terms of providing market insights which will position them at the front of emerging or changing trends.
