Cushman & Wakefield Makes Four Senior Appointments in EMEA Integrated Portfolio Management Team


Cushman & Wakefield has made four senior EMEA appointments within its Global Occupier Services (GOS) business, which delivers outsourced real estate solutions to help companies and institutions achieve their strategic goals.

The four appointments – three promotions and an external hire – are within the Integrated Portfolio Management (IPM) team supporting occupiers across their real estate portfolio. Services include strategic property advice to attract new talent, collecting and analysing property data around occupancy costs, and managing the leasing, acquisition and disposition of properties.
