The CBRE Retail Management team, led by Jane Wynne, currently manages close to 30 shopping centres, including Manchester Arndale and Cribbs Causeway in Bristol. In just 18 months the team has trebled in size and secured 12 new mandates in as many months.
Jane Wynne, head of Retail Management UK, CBRE, said: “The CBRE Retail Management has come a long way in a short space of time and we are proud of what has been achieved so far. We see huge potential and growth in developing our retail management business in the UK and as we seek to further increase our presence in the marketplace, Helen’s arrival will allow us to strengthen our core retail capabilities to help ensure clients receive the best specialist advice.”
