Cushman & Wakefield Makes Senior UK Retail Capital Markets Appointment

Real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield has appointed Josh Vernon as Partner to lead its Shopping Centre and In-Town Retail Capital Markets business.

Vernon joins from JLL where for the past 12 years he gained experience transacting on a wide array of retail assets before advancing to Director in its Shopping Centre Investment team. At Cushman & Wakefield he will be responsible for UK In-Town retail investment activity, covering assets as diverse as shopping centres to individual stores. His appointment also further strengthens Cushman & Wakefield’s expertise on the repurposing of retail assets and advice to investor clients on alternative uses to preserve or enhance value. 

He will work closely with Marcus Wood, an Out-of-Town retail and leisure market specialist, who was recently appointed to lead Cushman & Wakefield’s Retail Capital Markets team.  

Dominic Bouvet, Head of UK Retail & Leisure at Cushman & Wakefield, said: “We are delighted to welcome Josh to our team, his depth of experience and reputation for market-leading advice is a real asset to our firm and further enhances our client offering. His appointment is significant, not simply for his transactional experience but also to support our incredibly strong Valuation & Advisory business with insight into the capital markets.” 

Jason Winfield, Head of UK & Ireland Capital Markets at Cushman & Wakefield, said: “Retail capital markets is one of the most dynamic real estate sectors in the UK right now, with rising liquidity coinciding with considerable structural transformation. Cushman & Wakefield has long been recognised as one the most credible retail advisors in our industry and Josh and the rest of the retail investment team have the experience and ingenuity necessary to help clients best navigate the future of retail.”
