Cushman & Wakefield has appointed Angus Currie as an International Partner in its market-leading London Occupier Representation team.
Currie, who will start work at Cushman & Wakefield in spring, joins from JLL where he was Head of South East England Tenant Representation. Currie first joined JLL as a graduate in 2001, and since then has advised on many of the region’s largest occupier projects including the acquisitions of AstraZeneca’s 650,000 sq ft new global HQ in Cambridge, 184,000 sq ft for HMRC in Croydon, and 215,000 sq ft for Aker Solutions in Chiswick.
Cushman & Wakefield’s Occupier Representation team is the market leader in London, acting on more than 30% of all acquisitions above 100,000 sq ft across the past two years. The team specialises in advising on complex, strategy-led projects for companies whose real estate requirements define the London market.
Ben Cullen, Head of Occupier Representation at Cushman & Wakefield, said: “Angus is an exceptional addition to our market-leading occupier team and brings the necessary experience of working on complex transactions with big players in the UK office market. He has also been very active in life sciences and strengthens our expertise in an increasingly important sector in the London market. Our strength in London is built on our creative approach at the critical juncture between occupiers and landlords. Angus’s experience and insight will be invaluable both to the occupiers we advise and our landlord clients seeking to attract those companies.”
Occupier Representation is part of Cushman & Wakefield’s multidisciplinary London Markets business which also provides strategic advice to tenants, investors and developers across Capital Markets, Development, Flexible Leasing Solutions, Healthcare, Office Leasing & Lease Advisory, and Residential.
The team recently launched its Locate London website to support businesses searching for office space in the capital. With access to every available London property, Locate London pinpoints leased, serviced and co-working spaces to help businesses of all sizes find the right property for their requirements.
