2016 has been a rewarding start for Westside Business Improvement District (BID) Chairman and BGVA Property Consultancy Director, Sam Lawrence. He has said that ‘It’s an honour to be recognised for my work in relation to the Westside BID and to be included amongst this list of such prestigious and influential Midlands property people’. He also says that making top 50 is a ‘very pleasant surprise’.

This is a very rewarding acknowledgement. It is particularly momentous because the list includes key individuals such as ambassadors and advisers with influences in the Midlands.
