Cushman & Wakefield Expands James Young’s Head of Investor Services EMEA Role To Include Asia Pacific



Cushman & Wakefield, a global leader in commercial real estate services, has expanded the role of James Young, Head of Investor Services EMEA, to also include the Asia Pacific region. The promotion will take effect from January 2023.

As Head of Investor Services, EMEA & Asia Pacific, Young will support the firm’s major clients with their investment strategy across the two regions. He will foster strategic relationships, focus on business development, monitor capital flows across regions and leverage the firm’s strong local broker network to create value for its clients. 

James Young, Head of Investor Services, EMEA & Asia Pacific, said: “The EMEA and Asia Pacific regions share many characteristics, comprising established destinations for global capital alongside less mature real estate markets. Having always had a global outlook, I’m excited to expand my role to help support our clients in navigating local market nuances as they seek to allocate capital and maximise returns. We are currently experiencing a challenging economic environment across the globe, but that will inevitably lead to opportunities for our clients. We want to position ourselves to help investors re-examine their assets, diversify their options and prepare for the rebound.”

Cushman & Wakefield’s Investor Services platform incorporates its investor-focused service lines including Capital Markets, Agency Leasing, Valuation & Advisory, Project & Development Services and Asset Services. Young will work with service line leads in both regions.

Colin Wilson, Chief Executive, EMEA, said: “James and the regional Investor Services leadership teams, both here in EMEA and in Asia Pacific, will focus on driving sustained growth across our service lines in order to best support our clients.”

Young has been with Cushman & Wakefield for 32 years and held several leadership roles in EMEA as well as advising on landmark transactions for some of the world’s largest companies. He will sit on Cushman & Wakefield’s Executive Committees in both EMEA and Asia Pacific.
