“Real estate decision making has become a boardroom mainstay for many organisations as they consider enhanced cost management whilst recognising that offices, in particular, now play a key role in the employee value proposition,” added Belinda Norman-Walker, CBRE’s Head of TMT for Continental Europe. “This is particularly prevalent in sectors where the war for talent continues to be highly competitive and I am really looking forward to bringing my expertise to CBRE and cementing its position in the sector.”
