Global real estate advisor, CBRE, has appointed Mike Gorman as a senior director. In his new role, Mike will help lead the strategic growth of CBRE’s regional offering in multifamily housing, residential investment and development in the North of England.
Mike is a residential specialist with over 18 years’ experience in the industry. He was a partner in Knight Frank’s regional residential capital markets team from September 2018. Prior to that, he spent four and a half years in the residential capital markets team at CBRE, working across the offices in Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool.
Mike will join CBRE’s UK development and residential capital markets team and will be based in the Leeds office. His work for clients in the evolving UK multifamily sector will extend across the North of England.
John Ogden, executive director and managing director of CBRE’s northern business, said: “Mike will be joining a very successful capital markets team which includes Colin Thomasson, Guy Hurwood and Tom Sinclair, who have funded some of the biggest residential transactions in the North.”
Peter Burns, managing director of UK development and residential capital markets, CBRE, said: “Mike Gorman is a familiar face to many of us, he’s a talented expert with a wealth of experience, and we’re very pleased to welcome him back to CBRE in his new role at an exciting time for the sector.
“As the UK multifamily market rapidly expands and matures from a development market to one focused on investment grade standing stock and portfolios, there’s a growing demand for consultancy and transactional advisory services.
“This is certainly the case in the North of England, where multifamily investor activity is on the rise, and there were significant forward funding deals and direct site acquisitions in the last quarter.
“With our proven specialist team in the UK, connected to our global platform, CBRE is best-placed to help clients make the most of the opportunities.”
