Richard Sexton MBE

New York

I'm an International Partner with Knight Frank and enjoy advising companies and individuals on their global commercial and residential real estate needs, from one man start-ups to corporate headquarters.

I'm lucky to work with talented people in the Knight Frank family from across six continents and have the challenge of marrying their cultures and business practices with the expectations of our American clients. The role has allowed me to travel around the world.

I was born & raised in Croydon, UK and after working in London & Warsaw I came to New York in 2001. I fell in love with the vibrancy and energy of the City and later met my wife, Melissa.

I'm proud of my British heritage and since I decided to make NY my permanent home, I have immersed myself in helping British charities active in the US. I was awarded the MBE in 2013 for my efforts.

I'm currently Vice President of the St George's Society of NY and helped them establish the "George" brand to attract younger members. I'm also proud to have created, "Captain's Knock", events where leaders of industry meet legends of sport, with a charity focus. I also represent the UK children's medical research charity, Sparks.

I work hard and play hard, enjoy social media, branding and networking. I'm passionate about sports having played rugby and ran track. I now religiously follow English soccer and have been known to DJ for fun from time-to-time.
