Property News Colliers International recruits new Director to City Agency team

John Campbell

Colliers International has expanded its City Agency team with the appointment of a new director, John Campbell, who will be handling office disposals and acquisitions. John brings with him 15 years’ real estate experience and is joining Colliers from ALDAR Properties PJSC, the largest developer in Abu Dhabi, where he was the Head of Office Leasing for the past two years.

Previous to this role, John was a Partner in the City office of Gerald Eve, specialising in occupational agency.

Prior to joining Gerald Eve, John spent 10 years at DTZ concentrating on both the disposal and acquisition of offices in the City of London, Docklands and Midtown markets, as well as obtaining experience in the Development, West End Office Agency, Investment, Rating, and Valuation departments.

John’s appointment follows other significant industry appointments made by Colliers, with the company recently announcing the recruitment of Philip Papenfus as Head of South East Offices and Nicholas Round as Head of Shopping Centre Leasing.

Julie Rees, Head of Colliers’ City Office commented: “We are delighted to welcome John to the City Agency team. John’s track record speaks for itself but his proven experience in the disposal of large grade A office developments, as well as advising occupiers in successful relocation strategies, will no doubt enable us to further strengthen and develop our offer in this sector and enrich our client services.”
