CBRE strengthens Scottish business with strategic research appointment

Kirsty McKenzie

Global real estate advisor CBRE has announced it has strengthened its Advisory and Transactions team with a key appointment.

Kirsty McKenzie has joined as a Data Analyst and will be based in the firm’s Glasgow office. She is relocating from CBRE’s market-leading Manchester office where she has worked since 2017. Whilst there Kirsty was responsible for providing research data and analytics for the Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds office markets.

As well as producing research and analysis for the team in Scotland, in her new role Kirsty will be implementing new processes to strengthen data quality and completeness, along with additional areas of analysis that haven’t been generated previously in Scotland. This will also enable the firm to deliver market analysis quicker.

Andy Cunningham, Head of Advisory and Transactions at CBRE Scotland, said: “Kirsty is a well organised, meticulous planner with an abundance of experience and an unrivalled knowledge of the real estate market. We’re thrilled we’ve managed to secure someone of such a high calibre for the Scottish business. She is joining us from our Manchester office where the markets have been on fire for the last five to ten years, with Kirsty providing an invaluable service to clients by helping them better understand the market.

“Our Scottish clients really value the market leading research we produce and having Kirsty will no doubt enhance and expand that service.”

Commenting, Kirsty said: “I am excited to make the move to Scotland and get started in this new role. I am passionate about the value that data and analysis can add to our client offering and look forward to further developing my skills and experience working alongside a great team.”

David Smith, Managing Director at CBRE Scotland, added: “The use of data and analytics is driving forward the real estate market and informing key decisions by our clients. Investing in our dedicated resource in Scotland will ensure CBRE continues to provide market-leading advice.”
