George Roberts

Head of UK & Ireland • United Kingdom


I am the head of Cushman & Wakefield in the UK & Ireland, where we employ over 2000 people across 13 offices.

As one of the top three global real estate advisers, we act for some of the world’s largest investors, developers and occupiers and pride ourselves on taking ownership for the delivery of solutions that create value for our clients. 

My role in the UK & Ireland is focused on providing strategic leadership to the business so that we continue to develop and grow.

I also take personal responsibility for our client relationships to ensure we are delivering our services to a high standard for those clients that need us.

Prior to this role, I led the London Markets division at Cushman & Wakefield, a division comprising occupier representation, leasing, capital markets, residential and development teams, specialising in London real estate. 
 
With over 25 years of experience of the London office market, I have advised some of London’s largest occupiers in “key note” transactions.

Over the last three years, I have advised clients on major office relocations culminating in some of London’s most high profile pre-leasing acquisitions. 

I am fortunate to have advised clients from a broad cross section of sectors including Amazon, Burberry, Ogilvy, Publicis and Thomson Reuters.

If you are a prospective client who would like to discuss a business opportunity with me or are a talented individual looking for their next career move, then please connect with me so that we can discuss how Cushman & Wakefield can help.
