Ben is one of the few people with the experience and detailed knowledge of markets across the region to provide clients with the value-adding insight into where they need to be and why. He has been doing it for 15 years which, when combined with Yvonne’s deep experience, as well as the rest of the cross border team, gives our retail and leisure clients unrivalled specialist expertise on which to draw.”

I know the Cushman & Wakefield team well and can’t wait to get started.”
