Leading property consultant CBRE has announced the appointment of Tony Rosenthal as director in the Scottish Rating team in Glasgow.
Tony, who originally qualified as a surveyor with CBRE in 2008, has rejoined the company from Cushman & Wakefield, where he was a partner leading the National Rating team within Scotland. Previous to that he was also a partner at Gerald Eve. He brings ten years’ experience in Scottish business rates with his experience being largely centered on specialist markets including airports and renewables.
Based in the Glasgow office, Tony’s main focus will be to widen the Rating team’s involvement in specialist markets and, using his vast experience in rates mitigation, to expand the already successful mitigations offering in Scotland, including developing the water rates mitigation service line.
Brian Rogan, CBRE’s head of Rating in Scotland, commented on the appointment: “This is an exciting time for the Rating team at CBRE and Tony’s appointment, along with the specialist markets and mitigation experience that he brings with him, will enable us to strengthen our offering to clients.
“The Scottish Rating system has witnessed a dramatic couple of years with new practices being implemented following the 2017 Revaluation and the Scottish Government introducing a number of new reliefs and legislative changes following on from the Barclay Review in late 2017.
“Now, more than ever, ratepayers need the advice of experienced and dedicated rating surveyors who understand and follow how these changes impact on their assets performance.
“Tony’s considerable experience and expertise in navigating ratepayers through the new Scottish rating appeal and relief application processes will be of direct benefit to our clients, and it’s great to welcome him back to his roots with CBRE.”
Tony added: “I am thrilled to be returning to my roots by rejoining CBRE, where I began my career as a newly qualified surveyor. This is a fantastic opportunity for me to bring my skills and experience to the team. I look forward to being a positive asset to the company, and to our clients.”
