Cushman & Wakefield has recruited retail and leisure specialist Dominic Bouvet as a Partner to continue the expansion of its EMEA Cross Border Retail team and further develop its EMEA leisure offer.
Bouvet, currently a National Director at JLL, will join Cushman & Wakefield in the summer as Head of EMEA Cross Border Leisure and Retail Services. His appointment follows that of Kevin Farrow, joining from CBRE as Head of UK Retail Occupier Agency, as Cushman & Wakefield enhances its advisory offer to international retailers.
Since joining JLL through its merger with King Sturge, Bouvet has advised many retail and leisure occupiers including Dean & DeLuca, Merlin Entertainments, Godiva, Parques Reunidos, KidZania, Suitsupply and SuperGroup on their international real estate strategies. He has also built close relationships with major landlords, developers and investors through work on their EMEA retail portfolios.
Mark Barrett, Head of EMEA Cross Border Retail Agency, said: “Dominic further strengthens our cross border capability at a time when international expansion by exciting brands is one of the defining characteristics of the global retail market. He will hit the ground running thanks to well-established relationships with most international retailers and a strong understanding of city markets across Europe. This is great news for our retail and leisure clients.”
