Guy Douetil, Head of EMEA Corporate Solutions at Colliers International said: “This strategic hire will be instrumental in the continuing growth plans for our corporate solutions team in EMEA.

“Ed’s main role will be to deliver multi-discipline strategy led solutions to corporate occupiers, building on his experience of managing multi-national corporate accounts throughout EMEA including State Street Bank, The Walt Disney Company and Chubb Insurance.”

Ed Neild added: “Colliers International has recently won some important new global corporate clients including Rentokil Initial, so it’s great time to be joining the team and working with Guy to build on this success and help grow the breadth and depth of the business. The outsourcing market is very active and offers opportunities for partnering with corporate occupiers seeking value-add service models outside of the industry norm”.

Prior to joining CBRE in 1998, Ed worked for Cushman & Wakefield.

This is the firm’s third hire in the EMEA Corporate Solutions team in the last couple of months and it has more planned.
