CBRE makes changes to Northern leadership team

Global real estate advisor, CBRE, has made strategic changes to its Northern leadership team. John Ogden is now responsible for all UK Regional Markets, while Joe Rigby has been promoted to Managing Director (MD) of the North, overseeing CBRE’s Manchester, Liverpool, and Leeds offices.

Based in Manchester, Ogden will continue to have an active role in overseeing the Northern region but will also take on greater responsibility across CBRE’s wider regional UK business, with overall responsibility for Scotland, the North, and the Midlands & South, and all the sectors and service lines in these locations.

Rigby, who joined CBRE in 2014, has held several leadership roles within the company including Head of Occupiers Services for the North in 2019, before a promotion to Head of Office Agency for the North in 2022.

Rigby will now transition to Managing Director of the North, supporting Ogden, while remaining laser-focused on client solutions in the region. The news follows Colin Thomasson’s recent appointment as Head of UK Investment Properties.

John Ogden, Head of UK Regional Markets, CBRE said: “Joe is regarded as a market leader by clients, as well as the wider industry across the North, so he is well-placed to step up and drive the growth of our Northern business going forward.

“Simultaneously, it’s more important than ever that we are delivering a cohesive and integrated offering to our clients, across all our service lines and sectors. I look forward to continuing to work with Joe, as well as with all the teams across CBRE’s wider regional business, to deliver best-in-class, holistic solutions for our clients.”
