“Whenever we take on a new tenant to No5 we apply the exceptional criteria and Sudhir meets that criteria and we are excited about what we can achieve together. Due to COVID restrictions we had to hold our meetings via video link, and it was clear from the start that Sudhir is a great fit for No5. I am really looking forward to meeting him in person and introducing him to likeminded people across our network of clients.”
