Cushman & Wakefield Appoints Amy Cooper As Head of London Project Management


Cushman & Wakefield has made two new appointments within its UK Project & Development Services (PDS) team with Robert Beaumont due to retire at the end of the year after nearly 35 years with the firm.

Amy Cooper will succeed Beaumont as Head of London Project Management from 1 January 2021. A Chartered Building Surveyor and a Partner at Cushman & Wakefield, Cooper has been providing strategic advice and delivering major fit-out and relocation projects across the capital on behalf of the firm’s clients for more than 11 years.

In addition to Cooper’s promotion, Edward Gregg will be taking on leadership of the firm’s Occupier Project Management team, also effective 1 January 2021, with Sam Orwin continuing as Head of Investor Project Management.


Nic Wilkinson, Head of UK Project & Development Services, said: “Robert’s decision to retire is the end of an era, but I’m delighted to announce Amy as his successor. With her sound technical background and leadership experience in delivering major occupational fit outs on behalf of a wider range of clients such as Boden, MasterCard and Sony, Amy is the natural successor to Robert. She will drive forward our Project Management team whilst ensuring the links with our wider business are maintained.”


Amy Cooper said:I’m looking forward to building on our existing success in the London and South East market at a time when the pandemic has had two significant and noticeable impacts in project management. One has been to underline the importance delivering buildings, be it new build, refurbishment or the fit out of workplaces, that respond to the current environment we find ourselves in and the second is a heightened need to deliver value throughout the design and construction process – both areas at which Cushman & Wakefield excels.”


Beaumont will retire at the end of the year having begun his career with the firm in 1986 when he joined Bernard Thorpe, subsequently acquired by Debenham, Tewson & Chinnocks, one of the firms which would combine to form DTZ. Following the global merger between DTZ and Cushman & Wakefield, he led the combined London Project Management team, developing its offer to both occupier and investor clients.


Cushman & Wakefield’s UK PDS business provides services including building consultancy, building engineering, cost consultancy and design + build.
