Cushman & Wakefield has appointed healthcare sector specialist Paul Brouwers as a Partner in its EMEA Global Occupier Services (GOS) team.
Paul, who will advise GOS clients on portfolio strategies and regional leasing, previously worked for Cushman & Wakefield between 1997 and 2010.
Having started his real estate career in Kansas City in 1994, Paul’s initial stint with Cushman & Wakefield was based predominantly in Brussels but also featured spells in Istanbul and Amsterdam. During this period he was responsible for growing the Belgian GOS business and notably worked on the Procter & Gamble account.
From 2010 until returning to Cushman & Wakefield, Paul worked client-side as Director of Real Estate at Johnson Controls and Senior Real Estate Manager at Johnson & Johnson.
Paul said: “It is exciting to return to Cushman & Wakefield, a much bigger player now than the company I left, and to be part of the GOS team again. I’m really looking forward to the work ahead.”
Cushman & Wakefield’s GOS EMEA team works with more than 200 clients in 43 countries, including half the top 20 Forbes listed occupier clients in the region, providing services including: strategic consulting; integrated facilities management; project & development services; portfolio administration and transaction management.
James Maddock, Head of EMEA Global Occupier Services for Cushman & Wakefield, said: “Our position as trusted advisor to the leading global brands operating in EMEA means we need the best people in our team and Paul is definitely in that category. I’m delighted to welcome him back into the fold.”
Paul Brouwers is the latest in a string of senior hires to Cushman & Wakefield’s GOS EMEA team. In the last quarter, Ed Neild joined as Head of Portfolio Development and Derrick Bock left eBay to take up the position of Head of Workplace Strategy in Germany.
