John Hickman

John has been a dynamic presence in the property industry for over 50 years. He qualified as a Chartered Surveyor in 1968 whilst working at Gerald Eve & Co. He joined the family firm soon after – H.B. Kingston, as it then was, developed hundreds of flats and houses mainly in Surrey and Sussex. After a few years, he established the commercial development and investment arm of the Group, building medium sized suburban offices of good quality with generous car parking. A number of industrial developments were undertaken too.

As a keen supporter of the Arts, he commissioned David Wynne to create various sculptures to stand in front of several office buildings enhancing both the building and the street scene for all to enjoy. John continues to take an active interest in all areas of the business, and is particularly focused on environmental, social, charitable and governance issues.
