CBRE appoints new Glasgow head

Tony Rosenthal

Leading global real estate advisor CBRE has announced that Tony Rosenthal has been appointed as the new head of its team in Glasgow.

Tony, who has been with CBRE for six years, will be responsible for growing the agency’s existing services along with exploring new opportunities in emerging sectors.

This follows Tony’s recent appointment as Head of Rating for Scotland, a role he will continue to hold alongside his new responsibilities.

Tony, who will be taking up his new position on 1st April, said: “It’s an exciting time for the Glasgow commercial property market as we are now starting to fully emerge from the pandemic and recovery is finally on the horizon.

“While some of the other UK cities have already experienced their bounce-back, Glasgow is only now beginning to see activity levels return to normal. I believe Scotland’s largest city is poised for a period of significant growth, with people starting to return to the office, big global occupiers coming back into the market and hopefully more cranes appearing on the skyline.

“We have an ambitious team and I am looking forward to working alongside our Scottish MD David Smith to help grow the business not just in Glasgow but Edinburgh and Aberdeen too.”

David added: “CBRE Scotland continues to strive to provide the best advice to our clients across all sectors, both through key recruitment and development of our existing team. Tony’s commitment to excellence is reflected in this appointment as we seek to collaborate and indeed lead on Glasgow’s continued regeneration efforts at a key point in the economic cycle.”

One of the country’s leading experts on business rates, Tony is the current Scottish President of the Institute of Revenues, Rating and Valuation (IRRV).
