Darren Yates

Head of EMEA Retail Research • United Kingdom


Darren has over twenty years’ experience in property market analysis and has covered a wide range of sectors and markets.  He recently re-joined Cushman & Wakefield after six years away to become the head of EMEA Retail Research & Insight. 

Darren and his team focus on analysing trends which drive the retail and retail property markets.  They have access to a wide range of in-house databases which include economic, consumer and property data.  In addition, they have a strong capability in mapping and catchment analysis.

Darren began his career with Healey & Baker in 1996 as a European Retail Analyst which focused mainly on site-specific work and shopping centre feasibility analysis around Europe.  His role developed to encompass more investment and strategy work, as well as broader sector coverage.

After fourteen years, Darren left Cushman & Wakefield to join Knight Frank where he was head of Global Capital Markets Research, before moving to Carter Jonas as Head of Research.
