International real estate advisor Savills has appointed Danny Kinnoch to its cross-border investment team based at Savills Grosvenor Hill offices in London.
Kinnoch, who joins the UK-based department as European retail director, has been part of the firm's Spanish investment team since 2007 advising both national and international clients on the acquisition and disposal of property on the Iberian Peninsula. In his new role he will focus on the cross-border team's business generation and transactions primarily in Iberia and Italy.
While based at Savills office in Madrid Kinnoch worked with clients including British Land, Carlyle, Henderson and UBS. Recent projects include the analysis and due diligence of an RBS held retail loan portfolio and buyside advice to Henderson in the purchase of a retail park in the north of the country as well as other office and logistics opportunities.
Kinnoch has 13 years' experience in the real estate industry and prior to Savills worked in the international valuation department of CB Richard Ellis, also in Madrid.
Kinnoch says: "There are currently a number of attractive opportunities for investors across Southern European retail markets, especially for those not reliant on bank financing. I look forward to aiding clients on their overall cross-border acquisition and disposal strategies."
Borja Sierra, CEO of Savills Europe, says: "Danny Kinnoch's move to our London office is part of a wider strategy to boost our London based cross-border team by providing specialist knowledge and expertise across European markets linking directly with our individual country offices."
