SINGAPORE - Cushman & Wakefield's UK residential team has appointed John Koh as its head of international project marketing based in Singapore, the real estate services firm said in a press statement on Thursday (May 23).
Mr Koh joins the firm to lead a new in-house team specialising in the sale of new-build London and UK residential developments.
He worked previously at PropNex, Colliers and Knight Frank, and marketed a wide range of leading projects for many large and high-profit developers in the UK, the company said.
Neil Batty, Cushman & Wakefield's head of the global international project marketing business, said: "The UK, in particular London, has traditionally been a popular investment destination for Asian investors. This investment appetite continues to grow, particularly for well-located developments."
The company also plans to grow its network of specialist sales teams in China and South-east Asia.
Cushman & Wakefield already operates such teams across Asia including Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing.
Mr Koh said: "The story on Asian capital is far from over. Asian investors are still exploring the world's key gateway cities and London remains very attractive. Developers can leverage Cushman & Wakefield's global and regional platforms to reach a wide network of investors."
