Colliers International has hired Gunnar Larsson from JLL as a Senior Surveyor to join their newly-formed specialist PRS team.
Larsson joins fellow ex-JLL PRS specialist, Toby Nicholson, in the 8-strong team which comprises experts from across the business in departments including: Valuation, Capital Advisory, Land Transactions, Development Consultancy, Research and Planning.
Toby Nicholson, Director in the Colliers’ PRS team, commented: “Through his hands-on experience of advising on a variety of differing transactions, Gunnar’s appointment will further strengthen the capability of our PRS team.
“Prior to JLL, Gunnar was based in Sweden as part of CBRE Global Investors’ Nordics division. He brings with him a wealth of experience and detailed knowledge of major operators, developers and financiers across the Nordic region which will be invaluable to the team.
“Colliers’ competitive edge within the emerging private build-to-rent sector is our access to land, enviable client base, as well as our international reach. This global platform gives us access to markets where the PRS sector is already well-established, enabling us to leverage international clients, particularly from our US-based sister company, FirstService, which manages more than 1.5 million multi-family units. We look forward to continuing to grow the team to build on these opportunities.”
