Cushman & Wakefield fought off stiff competition last week at the Thames Valley Property Awards, picking up the award for Industrial & Logistics Property Consultancy of the Year.
The judges were impressed with how the dedicated Thames Valley team, based in Stockley Park, applies local insight, knowledge and experience whilst maintaining the high quality and consistent level of service that clients have come to expect of C&W.
Flying the flag for the Thames Valley region, Karen Thomas
, head of the Thames Valley industrial team said “This is a fantastic achievement and is a tribute to the expertise of our team and our hard work over the past year.”
The Thames Valley team was set up in 2008 by Karen in response to Cushman & Wakefield’s recognition of the importance of the region to the industrial and distribution sector and its springboard for companies new to the UK market due to its proximity to London and Heathrow Airport. Since then it has tripled in size to 3 full time fee earners.
Cushman & Wakefield are renowned for being sole agents on SEGRO’s Slough Trading Estate, Europe’s largest trading estate under single ownership and the flagship development of the Thames Valley industrial market. In the past year, the team has worked closely with occupiers including Unilever, BSkyB, SIG and John Lewis Partnership as well as Key Clients AVIVA, Aberdeen and LaSalle Investment Management.
In 2014 the Thames Valley team completed 70 deals and saw a 175% increase in space transacted year on year.
