Adam Cookson joins as Partner from FTSE 250-listed Sheffield Insulation Group
Cushman & Wakefield has appointed Adam Cookson as a Partner in the Logistics & Industrial EMEA team within its Global Occupier Services (GOS) business.
Cookson joins from FTSE 250-listed Sheffield Insulation Group (SIG), the market-leading specialist distributor of insulation and related products to the construction industry, where he was Head of Property & Facilities in the UK. Prior to this he worked at Travis Perkins for nine years, as Head of Property for the Northern region.
Based in Birmingham, he is the latest arrival in the firm’s GOS EMEA team, which helps clients make intelligent business decisions that optimise the value from the spaces they occupy. In March, Paul Foreman joined the same Logistics & Industrial EMEA team as a Partner from GVA, having previously spent 23 years at CBRE.
Adam Cookson, Partner, Global Occupier Services EMEA, Cushman & Wakefield, said: “Having spent nearly 20 years viewing property from the perspective of occupiers and as a client, it’s clear to me that real estate requirements are evolving and increasingly complex. I’m looking forward to applying this insight to help our delivery of services to an impressive and expanding range of clients.”
Robert Hall, Chair of Logistics & Industrial EMEA, Global Occupier Services, Cushman & Wakefield, said: “Adam’s client-side experience brings an added level of expertise to our occupational logistics and industrial team, ensuring we continue to offer our clients the best insight and service possible. He is another standout performer choosing to join our expanding team and enhancing our delivery of services, following the arrival of Paul Foreman earlier in the year.”
Cushman & Wakefield’s GOS EMEA Logistics & Industrial sector team works supports occupiers in shaping their real estate portfolios to be fit for purpose in an ever-evolving market, in which M&A, eCommerce and a growth environment ensure that transformation is always on the agenda. The team has dedicated account managers who work with 1,100 specialist brokers worldwide.
