CBRE establishes Northern Retail Agency Division

Leeds, October 2011 – The Leeds office of CBRE has established a new Northern Retail Agency division which will be headed up by new recruit, James Fox. Formerly at CBRE’s West End office, James joins the Leeds team as Associate Director of Retail Agency and will represent the firm’s clients in Yorkshire, Humberside and the North East.

No stranger to the region, James was born in Barnsley, schooled in Wakefield and attended University in Sheffield and Newcastle. His move to Leeds forms part of CBRE’s broader retail strategy to place key individuals in regional locations to service its growing and valued client base.

James said; “After six years of working with CBRE’s West End retail team the opportunity arose for me to continue my career in my home county. I know the region well and am looking forward to applying my experience to enhance CBRE’s northern retail agency presence.”
