Williams to spearhead expansion of Property Management Consultancy business
Avison Young has appointed Richard Williams as Principal and Managing Director to spearhead and direct the expansion of its Property Management business.
Joining Avison Young from CBRE, Richard brings over 30 years’ experience in strategic property and asset management across all sectors, nationally. His role at Avison Young is to guide the property management business from its current £15bn assets under management and over 15,000 occupiers, concentrating on institutional and property company owners that are looking for a service that adds value to their own business and importantly, to their occupiers and visitors.
Williams commented on his appointment: “Property management is one of the key planned growth areas for Avison Young, which was a clear driver for me to join the company. I am excited to be working with a superbly competent team at a time when mixed use, ‘Trophy’ buildings, estates, industrial and logistics, amongst many other asset classes are in need of commercialisation, placemaking and customer experience strategy to make them really thrive.”
