CBRE Hire Reflects Retail and Logistics Crossover in Property Sector

13th September 2018

Real estate advisor CBRE has announced the appointment of Tasos Vezyridis as Senior Director of Retail and Logistics Research for EMEA and the UK. He will lead the pan-EMEA and UK research programme and will join CBRE in late November, reporting to Miles Gibson, Head of UK Research.

Vezyridis (above) is currently Group Research Director at Landsec, where he leads the Group Research function. Previously, he held other positions in Landsec’s Retail team. Prior to joining Landsec in 2013 he was Assistant Vice President in Barclays Capital’s Global Corporate Real Estate division for five years. He has an MBA from the London Business School, an MSc in Programme and Project Management from the University of Warwick and an MEng in Engineering from the University of Athens.

Rhodri Davies, Head of UK Retail for CBRE, said: “This new post reflects increasing collaboration between CBRE’s Retail and Logistics business lines, ensuring that clients receive seamless advice in a world where the lines between these two real estate uses are increasingly blurred. Consumer, retailer and distributor behaviour is changing fast and Tasos’s appointment will ensure we are providing world class data and analysis to support increasingly complex client decisions.”
