PwC has promoted Craig Hughes to the role of Global Real Estate leader. Hughes, who currently leads the firm’s Global Sovereign Wealth Fund Real Estate practices, will start in the new role from 1 July 2016 in the London office.
Craig Hughes currently serves as PwC's UK and Global Sovereign Wealth Fund Real Estate practices leader. He has more than 20 years of experience in the real estate, and has worked with a wide range of industry players, from public companies to sovereign funds and pension funds to corporate occupiers. Hughes is a member of the LandAid fund raising committee. Hughes, in addition, leads two of PwC UK’s Diversity and Inclusion networks - the Carers Network and the Parents Network.
The Big Four giant has announced that Hughes has been appointed as PwC’s Global Real Estate leader. The role will see him take responsibility for the firm’s growing global real estate practice, which, previous to Hughes, has been in the hands of Kees Hage. Hughes will take on the new challenge from 1 July onward, while Hage, who has worked at PwC for 29 years, will continue to provide key support in an auxiliary role.
Hughes remarks that “It's a great honour” to be asked to take on the Global Real Estate leadership role. He further adds that “Kees has done an excellent job leading the practice and will remain a key member of the team going forward. We will continue to aim to be the global practice people want to work for and clients want to work with. The building blocks are in place and I look forward to leading the team as we continue toward making that vision a reality."
