Davies succeeds Phil Cann, who recently moved to the role of UK Head of Investment Properties, and his appointment has become effective from the 1st of June. Davies takes on the task of continuing to build the company’s presence in the segment during a period of increasing uncertainty – as inflation and low wages begin to place constraints on consumers, and potentially the retail segment more widely.

Commenting on the appointment of Davies, Ciaran Bird, Managing Director of CBRE UK said, “Our retail team has gone from strength to strength during Phil’s tenure and I am delighted that Rhodri has agreed to take on this important leadership role to spearhead the growth and development of our unrivalled retail offer and ensure we continue to provide best in class advice and service to our retailer and landlord clients.”
