Christie & Co, specialist business property adviser, has promoted Joel Mannix to the coveted position of head of dental for the UK.

Originally from rural Australia, Joel Mannix relocated to Scotland in 2013 and started a career at Christie & Co in 2018.

In his new role, Joel will spearhead the brokerage side of the business, leading an award-winning UK-wide team of dental business advisors.

The position was previously held by Paul Graham, who was promoted to managing director of the company’s medical division in January 2024.

Joel Mannix, head of dental at Christie & Co, said, “I’m excited to take on the role of Head of Dental at what is a pivotal time in UK dentistry - a year of balanced growth and stability that will continue to prove the resilience of this needs-based sector.

“It’s an honour to take on this position following Paul Graham, who, alongside Simon Hughes, has done a phenomenal job establishing what is now a core sector at Christie & Co. Over the last decade, I’ve been so proud to be part of this fantastic, award-winning team, and I look forward to enhancing its profile and implementing my vision for success in 2024 and beyond.”

Paul Graham, managing director of medical at Christie & Co, said, “Joel's promotion to head of dental is a testament to his exceptional management qualities, profound understanding of the dental market, and the significant contributions he has made to our team.
