Our People and Clients
At Brook, we fundamentally believe that external learning only makes us stronger. As a small consultancy, we must fully embrace this learning to ensure we continue to provide a quality service to you.

Stewart was our honorary non-executive chairman until his untimely death in 2021.
An experienced director and chairman who, for twenty years as chief executive, led the growth of BWI plc, a manufacturer and supplier of equipment and services to the pharmaceutical, food and consumer products industries, through its IPO on the London Stock Exchange, to build a £120 million turnover group with operations in the UK, the USA and Europe.
An engineer and Sloan Fellow of the London Business School, he brought huge business management experience to us at Brook Investment Partners. He always made time to listen and understand the issues we faced before providing excellent insight into how we could not just resolve the problems but turn that learning into better processes and actions going forward.
Stewart, you remain in our hearts and will be missed for many years to come.
We are very proud of all the clients we have had and continue to act for. Key mandates with Halpern Properties Ltd, Westminster City Council and The London Diocese Fund alongside a number of individual projects and our work with Cluttons Investment Management, amongst others, have assisted us to shape the independent and unconflicted services we offer.
We thank you all for your continued support.
