Senior hire for CBRE to boost Northern offering

CBRE, has appointed a Senior Director at its Leeds office to boost the real estate advisors regional offering in the North of England.

Mike Gorman was a a partner in Knight Frank’s regional residential capital markets team from September 2018.

Previously, he spent four and a half years in the residential capital markets team at CBRE, working across the offices in Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool.

In his new role, he will help lead the strategic growth of CBRE’s regional offering in multifamily housing, residential investment and development in the North of England.

“Mike Gorman is a familiar face to many of us, he’s a talented expert with a wealth of experience, and we’re very pleased to welcome him back to CBRE in his new role at an exciting time for the sector,” said Peter Burns, MD of UK development and residential capital markets.

“As the UK multifamily market rapidly expands and matures from a development market to one focused on investment grade standing stock and portfolios, there’s a growing demand for consultancy and transactional advisory services.

“This is certainly the case in the North of England, where multifamily investor activity is on the rise, and there were significant forward funding deals and direct site acquisitions in the last quarter.”
