Cushman & Wakefield expands brief for Davies
Manchester-based Chad Davies has been appointed to the new role of head of UK regions, valuations & advisory by the consultancy, having led its Northern team for four years.
Davies joined the firm’s Manchester team as a partner from Lambert Smith Hampton in November 2019, having spent close to a decade with LSH.
Since, he has led the Northern valuation & advisory team specialising in loan security, accounts, and fund valuation across the logistics & industrial, retail and office markets.
As UK regional head, Davies will lead the valuation & advisory teams in the North West, Yorkshire & North East, South West & Wales, Midlands and Scotland.
He has valued many large prime city centre offices and led numerous multi-million-pound industrial portfolio valuations acting on behalf of major lending institutions, C&W said.
Cushman & Wakefield’s UK valuation & advisory division comprises a national team of sector specialists who provide data-led advice and commercial insight to deliver tailored solutions to support clients.
Tom Nuttall, head of UK valuation & advisory at Cushman & Wakefield, said: “Chad is a highly skilled adviser and respected leader, and absolutely the right person to take on this newly created role at Cushman & Wakefield.
“Our valuation & advisory team has a strong track record in servicing large national valuation mandates. In the last 12 months we have valued some notable portfolios, including 7m sq ft of industrial space over 100 assets and an 8m sq ft multi-sector portfolio valued at more than £1bn.
“During 2023, our regional teams valued many prime city centre offices ranging in value from £1m to more than £100m, and £4bn of industrial & logistics accommodation.”
Davies added: “I am thrilled to take on this role, and look forward to collaborating with colleagues across the UK to further strengthen our position and presence in the market. Our focus is to build on the wealth of local knowledge and experience we have, to develop new client relationships and expand existing ones.”
