Lawrence’s academic background is an MSc in Knowledge Engineering. He started his career as a Statistical Data Analyst at the Department of Transport, then in the IT industry, not just in the UK, but in other parts of Europe and Hong Kong. He also provided consultancy services to the Law Society in London.
Lawrence founded his own IT consulting business in 1996 in the UK, initially concentrating on the City of London, such as members of The Pipeline Industries Guild, The Institute of Horticulture and The Honourable Company of Master Mariners.
After considerable expansion and adding to the range of services, Lawrence relaunched his company as Commerce-Connections in 1999. He has been involved in Business-to-business (B2B) and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) ever since with a focus on the overall infrastructure and management of the company.
After 15 years of personally investing in profitable luxury homes in London, Lawrence has been sought out to advise and assist other affluent investors with their central London property ventures. His success spurred him to found Centurion-Connections with the goal of enabling others to benefit from the current attractive yields and security that prime central London property provides. Classic cars are his other passion: Lawrence has an impressive personal collection of rare cars and, similarly to real estate, made handsome profits by trading this unique asset under the umbrella of his company Cars-Connections.
Lawrence is also a keen polo player. He is a member of the Black Bears Polo Club, the Royal Berkshire Polo Club, Tedworth Park Polo Club, and has his own string of ponies.
