Cushman & Wakefield has appointed Michael Carson as Supply Chain & Logistics Advisory lead in EMEA.

Carson joins from Libra Europe Consulting Ltd where he was Group Commercial Director. Prior to that he spent five and a half years at SIG, the leading supplier of insulation and sustainable building products, where he was Supply Chain Director for its Exteriors division.

At Cushman & Wakefield, Carson will provide strategic and operational supply chain advice to occupiers across the EMEA region. He is the latest recruit in the firm’s global Supply Chain & Logistics Advisory team build, which has already seen counterparts joining to head up activity in the Americas and APAC. He will sit within the firm’s Global Occupier Services business.

Tim Crighton, Head of Logistics & Industrial EMEA, Cushman & Wakefield, said: “We are in a transformative period for supply chains and while the reasons predate the pandemic, it has, along with geopolitical and economic crises, intensified the demand for specialist advice. Michael’s insight and experience will be a huge benefit to our clients.

“Michael sees real estate in the context of supply chain and business impact, where it becomes a critical component in producing margin and driving a successful and sustainable business. That is where things get especially interesting for our clients – when location, format and specification create value that goes well beyond simply getting a better deal on a property transaction. We’re delighted to bring him on board as a key member of the Logistics & Industrial EMEA team.”

Michael Carson, Supply Chain & Logistics Advisory Lead, EMEA, Cushman & Wakefield, said: “I’m excited to be working with a great team that I have already got to know over the last couple of years. My background is supporting companies in unlocking significant supply chain opportunities across a wide range of sectors from B2B distribution, retail, manufacturing, fashion, to elite sports. I’m looking forward to bringing that expertise to bear on behalf of Cushman & Wakefield’s clients as part of a world class advisory function.”

Cushman & Wakefield offers a full suite of brokerage, occupier services, project and development services, valuation, and capital markets services across the logistics and industrial sector in EMEA.
