Colliers has promoted Kevin Turpin to Regional Director of Capital Markets in Central and Eastern Europe with immediate effect, the diversified professional services and investment management company said yesterday.
Turpin, who has 17 years of experience in the region, was previously the Regional Director of Research for CEE at Colliers. A well-recognised keynote speaker and panellist at major international real estate events, he has shared his capital markets and research knowledge and broad business perspectives on market trends and helped investment clients to make informed decisions, especially during the challenging last two years.
“His experience across strategic analysis, asset classes and geographies is unmatched in the region and allows us to provide clients with a unique and broad offering,” said Monika Rajska-Wolinska, CEO, Colliers CEE.
In his new role Turpin will focus on strengthening the Capital Markets platform across CEE, where Colliers provides a broad spectrum of investment services including both buy-side and sell-side advisory, involving commercial and technical due diligence, across a portfolio of strategic investment services.
“Kevin’s appointment marks an important new step for Colliers in CEE and on a European basis”, said Luke Dawson, Managing Director, Cross Border Capital Markets, Colliers EMEA. “Through his extensive client relationships and his understanding of the market, I am sure he will help our existing investment clients to grow and make the right strategic decisions, whilst attracting new opportunities. Combined we will provide a more complete and unique regional platform for investors across a broader range of real estate sectors”.
The CEE region at Colliers now includes Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia.
“Colliers already has first class investment teams across CEE and together we will further grow our capabilities and deliver the best possible results for our clients in this region”, said Turpin. “With almost 17 years spent advising both internal and external clients on the CEE property markets, through both bull and bear markets, I am particularly looking forward to applying this experience in my new position”.
Turpin will work closely with Dorota Wysokińska-Kuzdra, Head of Corporate Finance and Living Services, Colliers CEE, whose team supports clients in residential and broader living sector advisory, transactions and operations, as well as debt and equity advisory.
