Colliers International has announced the appointment of James Cubitt as the new head of its Birmingham Office. He succeeds Jon Cookson, who returns full time to his role as Head of Corporate Restructuring where he will be spending more time in London providing strategic advice to lendors.

Cubitt joined Colliers in 2006 as a Senior Surveyor in the Valuation & Advisory Services team and became a Director in 2010.  He is currently Joint Head of Valuation in Birmingham and until recently was Chairman of the IPF Midlands Region.

Tony Horrell, CEO UK & Ireland at Colliers International said: “Birmingham is our largest office outside London, with more than 100 employees and rising. James’ experience, his enterprising spirit and his broad network with colleagues, clients and prospective clients, makes him well placed to take on the increased responsibility of leading the Birmingham office.”

James Cubitt, the newly appointed Head of Birmingham Office at Colliers International added: “Following the appointment of a new metro mayor, HS2 gaining royal assent and the continued trend for job creation outside of London, it is an electrifying time to be living and working in Birmingham. I am excited to be leading the charge for Colliers Birmingham as we continue to strive for future growth and success in the city and the Midlands.”

Jon Cookson, Head of Corporate Restructuring at Colliers International says: “Whilst I have very much enjoyed my time leading the Birmingham office, I look forward to returning to the coalface; spending more time in London providing strategic advice to lendors through our corporate restructuring and recovery business, which goes from strength to strength.”
