Cushman & Wakefield has appointed Andrew Meikle as an International Partner in its National Offices & UK Capital Markets teams.
Meikle will join from BNP Paribas where he has spent nearly 10 years as a Senior Director and Head of Investment in the Birmingham team, advising investor clients on the disposal and acquisition of commercial property assets and development funding, as well as corporates on sale & leasebacks.
Prior to that Andrew spent nearly 14 years at CBRE, six of which were as a Director in Birmingham where he established the Development Consultancy team, focused on consultancy, land transactions and development funding, before moving into capital markets activity.
Meikle’s transactional track record includes: advising M&G Real Estate on the funding of Three Snowhill – at 420,000 sq ft, the largest single speculative office funding ever undertaken outside of London; advising HSBC Alternative Investments (HAIL) on its £265m acquisition of Brindleyplace; and the sale of the 180-acre Derby Commercial Park to Goodman Logistics.
At Cushman & Wakefield, Meikle will be a senior member of the UK Capital Markets team. Based at Cushman & Wakefield’s Midlands regional hub in Birmingham, Meikle will be responsible for driving activity in the Midlands and wider regions, working closely with Ned Jones and other key members of the team.
Jon Leedham, Head of National Offices & Regional Managing Partner – Midlands, Cushman & Wakefield, said: “Andrew’s deep experience in Birmingham, across the Midlands and wider regional markets, as well as the broad skillset he will bring to the firm will significantly benefit our clients. We are always keen to bring in the highest quality advisors to Cushman & Wakefield to ensure our clients receive the best insight and we delighted Andrew is joining to work alongside Ned and the wider team.”

He brings the senior insight, connections and experience craved by investors in an evolving market. He is a great addition to our already strong team.”
