CBRE strengthens Advisory & Transaction Services team

Andy Cunningham - CBRE

Leading property consultant CBRE has today announced the appointment of Andy Cunningham as a senior director in its Advisory & Transaction Services team in Glasgow.

Andy is joining from Cushman & Wakefield where he has spent more than ten years as a partner and head of the Office Agency team in Glasgow.  He has been involved in some of the largest leasing transactions across Scotland and has unrivalled knowledge of the Scottish commercial real estate market.  Prior to his time at Cushman & Wakefield, and before periods with Knight Frank and Lambert Smith Hampton, Andy started his career at Richard Ellis which later became CBRE.

Based in the Glasgow office, Andy will work alongside fellow senior director Audrey Dobson with the aim of strengthening the firm’s offering and establishing the team as market leaders in the Glasgow office sector.

This latest significant hire follows the appointment of Steven Newlands in February this year to head up CBRE’s Capital Markets team in Scotland.

Miller Mathieson, head of CBRE Scotland, commented on the appointment:  “Andy is a highly regarded expert in Scotland and will add considerable fire power to our existing team.  He has strong client relationships in both Scotland and London and a fantastic track record of dealing with major leasing, tenant representation and development instructions.  Notably, he recently acted for State Street in securing its new Edinburgh HQ at Quartermile.

“It is particularly pleasing that someone of Andy’s experience has chosen to further his career at CBRE.  His appointment is further evidence of our commitment to recruit best in class individuals who will have an immediate impact on the teams they join and importantly the wider business.

“The full team of Audrey, Andy, Alistair Urquhart, David Reid and Rachel Docherty will be a force to reckon with, particularly given the strong links between our Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen teams.”
