Global real estate advisor CBRE has strengthened its agency offering in the Bristol office with new heads of both its office agency and industrial & logistics teams.
Richard Kidd has been appointed Head of Office agency across South West and South Wales, while Philip Cranstone will head up the Industrial & Logistics team.
Joining from GVA, Richard will join Alex Riddell and Peter Martin to head the team responsible for office acquisitions, disposals and development in Bristol and the wider South West and Wales regions.
Philip joins CBRE’s Bristol team from Cushman and Wakefield and has immediately begun working on flagship new schemes including Trinity Park in Swindon and the Portside Park and Central Approach developments in Avonmouth, Bristol. Philip is joined in the team by James Nelson who moves from CBRE’s Valuation & Advisory team.
“Our ability to provide a locally-focused service with the backing of CBRE’s global platform allows our agency teams to find the best opportunities and add value to our clients,” said Tom Morris, Managing Director, CBRE Bristol. “The skills and expertise brought by our new additions will strengthen our agency offering, as we look to further expand the Bristol office.”
Philip added: “Industrial & logistics is a very exciting sector to be involved in, particularly with the various developments that are coming on stream in the region, and we see further growth potential over the coming years. CBRE Bristol is involved in some exciting projects which are significant in the region, and I’m looking forward to managing those projects as well as driving forward various new opportunities.”
Richard continued: “We aim to make CBRE one of the top office agency teams in the region, as is the case in many of the other major cities across the country. CBRE is an international business, and in a market place that’s becoming increasingly global, we aim to build on our strong occupier representation business, as well as making ourselves the agent of choice for investors and developers in the region.”
