The combined business is one of the largest commercial real estate services firms in the world. The new firm draws on the best of both legacy organisations, with $5 billion in revenue, 43,000 employees and more than 4.3 billion square feet under management, and $191 billion in transaction value.  

The UK & Ireland business is being led by Colin Wilson, Head of UK & Ireland, and Digby Flower, Chairman of UK & Ireland. Digby will also be Head of London Markets. 

UK & Ireland Executive Committee:

Justin Taylor – Retail

“Our new UK and Ireland leadership team is illustrative of the exceptional talent, experience and track record of delivery for clients which runs throughout the business,” said Colin Wilson. “Together with Digby and I, these colleagues will be responsible for the strategic direction and performance of Cushman & Wakefield across the UK & Ireland.”  

Digby Flower said: “Our people, and the increased value they can add to our clients, have been the central motivation for this merger. The most immediate priority for the UK & Ireland leadership team is to consolidate ourselves as a single business and ensure we build on our current momentum by mobilising effectively around our clients. From that, all further success for the business such as increasing our market share will naturally flow.”
