Yates on the move to Cushman & Wakefield

James Yates has joined at partner level to head the Yorkshire & North East capital markets team, arriving from a 15-year spell with Avison Young.

Yates, who was a director at AY and started last week in his new role, brings 15 years’ experience in real estate advisory to C&W. He will be primarily based in the Leeds office.

He has advised a range of clients on commercial property transactions across all UK market sectors, including Aviva, CBRE IM, Copley Point Capital, M7, and local authorities across the country.

Jeremy Beckett, head of national capital markets at Cushman & Wakefield, said: “We are thrilled to welcome James to Cushman & Wakefield.

“Our Capital Markets team is made up of specialists with a thorough understanding of capital sources and pricing in the market, as well as the evolving needs of occupiers and what that means for investors throughout the country.

“James’ experience and considerable local market knowledge will complement the existing team and further strengthen our first-rate investment advisory service for clients.”

Yates added: “It is an exciting time to join Cushman & Wakefield. The Yorkshire and North East has deep and established investment markets across multiple sectors. I look forward to forging new client relationships and supporting businesses seeking to invest in the region.”
