By Paul Norman - Wednesday, September 12, 2018 14:21

CBRE has appointed Tasos Vezyridis as Senior Director of Retail and Logistics Research for EMEA and the UK.

Vezyridis will lead the pan-EMEA and UK research programme at a "time of enormous change and innovation in both the retail and logistics property markets" CBRE said. Vezyridis will join CBRE in late November, and will report to Miles Gibson, Head of UK Research.

Vezyridis is Group Research Director at Landsec, where he leads the Group Research function.

Previously, he held other positions in Landsec’s Retail team. Prior to joining Landsec in 2013 he was Assistant Vice-President in Barclays Capital’s Global Corporate Real Estate division for five years. He has an MBA from the London Business School, an MSc in Programme and Project Management from the University of Warwick and an MEng in Engineering from the University of Athens.

Miles Gibson said: “I am delighted to welcome Tasos to CBRE from Landsec, where Tasos has been instrumental in informing Landsec’s strategy over the last five years. This new post brings together previously separate research roles covering retail and industrial property respectively, a first for real estate property research in the UK. Tasos’s expertise will further complement our existing senior research expertise.”

Tasos Vezyridis said: “This new role presents an exciting opportunity for me to produce world class thought leadership and analysis for our clients, building on my client-side experience at Landsec and Barclays.”

Rhodri Davies, Head of UK Retail for CBRE, said: “This new post reflects increasing collaboration between CBRE’s Retail and Logistics business lines, ensuring that clients receive seamless advice in a world where the lines between these two real estate uses are increasingly blurred. Consumer, retailer and distributor behaviour is changing fast and Tasos’s appointment will ensure we are providing world class data and analysis to support increasingly complex client decisions.”
