Sunter joins from CBRE and brings with him 25 years of real estate experience.
Global real estate adviser Cushman & Wakefield has hired Duncan Sunter from CBRE as head of the firm’s Valuation & Advisory practice in Sweden.
His appointment will enable Cushman & Wakefield to service clients in the wider Nordic region as part of the business’ EMEA Valuation & Advisory group.
Sunter brings with him more than 25 years of extensive experience in the real estate sector, 15 of which have been in the Nordics. For the last four years at CBRE he led a team of 12 valuers and prior to that he was head of valuation for the Nordics at EuroHypo Bank’s Stockholm office for seven years. Before this, he was based in Germany where he was responsible for the valuation of RheinHyp’s (Commerzbank) real estate lending portfolio in most of Northern Europe.
He is the only valuer in Sweden holding two of the highest ‘HypZert’ qualifications which are accepted by German banks. Sunter was also recently voted as one of Sweden’s top three valuers by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
Rupert Dodson, Cushman & Wakefield’s Global Co-Head of Valuation & Advisory, said: “As we continue to grow our business in Sweden generally, Duncan’s appointment and the wealth of experience he brings with him will ensure we are well represented in the Nordics from a valuation perspective. He is an essential addition to our EMEA Valuation & Advisory team and supports our strategy to focus on expansion in key European markets.”
Cushman & Wakefield recently announced the recruitment of seven leading partners from Catella Corporate Finance in Sweden to significantly bolster its capital markets presence in the Nordic region. Widely regarded as being the market leaders for providing Swedish real estate investment advice, Anders Nordvall, Thomas Persson, Niklas Zuckerman, Per Hagman, Daniel Anderbring, Ola Jacobsson and Erik Dansbo will join the business at partner-level. Anders Nordvall will become the CEO of Cushman & Wakefield in Sweden.
Globally, Cushman & Wakefield’s Valuation & Advisory division is located in 98 offices and last year its 640 strong team valued over $1.1 trillion of property.
