CBRE has appointed a new director to head up its industrial and logistics team in Birmingham.

Peter Monks has joined the property consultancy from Colliers International where he was a director in the industrial agency team for more than five years. Prior to that, Peter worked at BNP Paribas Real Estate from 2006 to 2014.

He’s returned to CBRE after more than 13 years, having trained as a graduate surveyor at the firm back in 2004.

Peter brings a wealth of experience in the sector and will work with fellow director Melissa Wase-Rogers and Craig Herrick in the Birmingham office, along with colleagues in London and across the UK.

Peter said: “Having cut my teeth as a graduate at CBRE it’s great to be returning to the firm where my career first began. CBRE’s industrial and logistics team is a market leader in the West Midlands, having advised on numerous key transactions in the region, as well as being instructed on some of the Midlands’ premier schemes.

“I’m excited to be back advising clients and growing the team further.”

Martin Guest, CBRE Birmingham managing director, said: “It’s great to welcome back Peter to strengthen the industrial agency team. Peter’s a highly respected industrial agent with a strong track record across the Midlands and he will be an extremely valuable asset to the firm.”
