Our story.

Innesco is a privately owned company founded by Dan Innes in 2009 with the ambition to provide a more agile, integrated and international marketing service to clients operating in the real estate and built environment sectors. From its original offices on Maddox Street in London W1, Innesco grew rapidly out of the ashes of the 2008/9 financial crisis.

The ambitious team recognised the determination of boutique and major businesses to think differently about reaching their audiences, establishing itself by applying a ‘bigger picture’ view of the global real estate market to individual assets and developments. Our mission remains to optimise outcomes for clients, challenge the status quo in this fast changing industry, and enjoy our work!
