Chris Blackham could chair start-up property broker

Chris Blackham is understood to be considering an offer to chair the new property broker made up of former colleagues from his one-time business, Layton Blackham.

Blackham, who returned to the market this month as a non-executive directors at broker Howden’s, has been approached by ex-colleagues, including former Layton Blackham managing director Geoff Bradford.

If Blackham accepts the job, it could see him rival Bluefin, the AXA owned business that incorporates the Layton Blackham business he sold to the insurer.
