Regional role for CBRE’s Alan Klein

Alan Klein has been promoted to head of CB Richard Ellis’ regional lease consultancy team.

Alan is a senior director at CBRE and heads up the lease consultancy business in Birmingham. He joined the firm in 1995, heading up the landlord, tenant and valuation team, before taking on his current role. Today, he manages a team of eight people, across leasing and rating.

As part of his new role, Alan will be responsible for co-ordinating the professional teams in CBRE’s other regional offices, including Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester and Southampton, to ensure best market practice, share knowledge and research, and implement a client care programme.

He said: “I’m looking forward to working with the professional teams in the other regions. By working more closely, the aim is to provide clients with an enhanced, more joined-up approach to professional services, be it through the sharing of ideas and best practice or just coordinating effort more strategically.”

CBRE has appointed six regional service line heads across the UK. Ashley Hancox, who is based at the firm’s office in Birmingham, will head up office agency; Simon Wood (North-West) and Andy Sayner (Bristol), will jointly head investment; valuation will be lead by Richard Eames (Bristol); Richard Bamford (Leeds) will head building consultancy; occupier services will be lead by Nick Rice (North-West); and Real Estate Finance by Doug Smith (Scotland).

In addition, Adrian McStay has been promoted to managing director of the UK regions, moving from his previous post as chief operations officer for the regions. Adrian joined CBRE in Birmingham in 2008, following the acquisition of Grenville Smith & Duncan Ltd (GSD).

Martin Samworth, UK managing director at CBRE, said: “These appointments will allow us to both enhance our offer to clients and strengthen our connectivity across our Regional offices and with our London teams, creating new synergies between our offices and best practice for our clients.”
