CBRE hires Capital Markets expert to focus on Private Equity clients

Global real estate advisor, CBRE, has appointed Mike Rowlands as an Executive Director in its National Investment team.

Mike joins from Hollis Hockley, where he has been since 2020. Prior to this, Mike was at BNP Paribas and Strutt and Parker, where he was Co-Head of Investment and prior to that, Head of Retail. He has over 30 years of industry experience and brings with him deep connections across all aspects of capital markets.

In his new role, Mike will be largely sector agnostic, working across the UK, with a primary focus on developing client relationships and new business opportunities. He will be working closely with Adrian McStay, Head of National Markets, James Delliere, Head of National Office Investment and Rhodri Davies, Head of Retail. 

Mike Rowlands commented “This is a hugely exciting time to be joining CBRE and I look forward to playing a key role in delivering and building on the firm’s market leading Capital Markets offering.”

Mike’s extensive experience and client relationships, both in private equity and across institutional investors, will be invaluable as we look to deliver the full strength of CBRE’s Capital Markets service offering to our clients, regardless of what sector or geography they are interested in. There is a huge weight of capital looking to be deployed into UK real estate in the wake of the pandemic and we are confident that Mike’s expertise will be of huge value to our clients as we look to help them deliver their investment strategies.
