Global property consultancy Knight Frank has strengthened its Yorkshire property management team with the strategic appointment of Ross Malkin as a partner.
Ross joins from CBRE in London, where he was a director specialising in retail and mixed-use property management, having previously worked at British Land.
He said: “This is a major move and a tremendous opportunity for me. I am delighted to have the chance to join Knight Frank and am ready to develop my career further with this internationally renowned property consultancy.
“The property management department is already a leading consultancy across the Yorkshire region, but my challenge is to take it to another level. The combined Leeds and Sheffield teams will provide an unrivalled service for existing and future clients alike.
“I have a genuine breadth of experience in property management, having worked on the client side for British Land and Edinburgh House Estates and in consultancy practice. This experience extends to all asset classes.
“The chance to join Knight Frank was an offer I couldn’t refuse. This is a superb opportunity – and challenge – at a pivotal time for the real estate market in Yorkshire,” he added.
Henrie Westlake, head of Knight Frank in Leeds, said: “Ross is an incredibly important appointment for us. His expertise and experience in managing high-profile commercial property will be vital for expanding our property management department in Yorkshire and his arrival heralds a new era for the team.
“He is a perfect fit for our culture and we could not be more excited about him joining the Partnership. These are very exciting times for Knight Frank and Ross is absolutely integral to our future success in the county.”
Ross lives in Sheffield with his wife and three children. His hobbies include travel, golf, football and cricket.
