After qualifying as a Chartered Accountant, Robert started his career with Mark McCormack’s IMG. However, his entrepreneurial instincts soon led him to pursue his own business interests. Following a successful period in residential property development, he embarked on his first commercial property venture, co-founding Local London Group in the 1980’s and eventually taking it public in 1986 before selling it in 1989 for £120m. Following the sale of LLG, Robert set up Bourne Capital in 1989 with a vision to build a new kind of property and leisure group that acquires adjoining properties to form Central London Estates.
Robert oversaw the acquisition and restoration of both The Richmond and Criterion Theatres, sympathetically restoring these listed buildings to embrace modern working standards while maintaining their distinctive historic identity.
