CBRE’s Manchester office has appointed Joe Rigby to head up its Occupier Services team, a role which will harness his uniquely global expertise and experience.

Manchester-born Joe started with CBRE in London in 2014 and has delivered occupier strategy, analysis and transactions globally for a multitude of corporate clients within the banking and finance, tech, professional services and legal sectors.

Most recently Joe has been seconded in to BNY Mellon based out of New York delivering all transactional activity across EMEA and APAC where he has been at the forefront of some of the most significant office leasing transactions in 2019.

Speaking on Joe’s appointment John Ogden, MD, CBRE Manchester said;

“Joe’s role will be to work with businesses of all sizes on their real estate strategy and direction. With the changing world of the workplace and office space in particular, occupiers are demanding specialised service delivery to help them attract and retain top talent, drive efficiencies within their real estate portfolios and maximise economic value. We are very pleased to have Joe on board and look forward to benefitting from the knowledge and experience he brings from other areas of CBRE.”

Joe Rigby commented;

“I have worked within CBRE for around 6 years and it was always my intention to return to Manchester so it’s fantastic to be now working in my home city. I am looking forward to the opportunity to shape, grow and develop the occupier market and can’t wait to get started.”
