International real estate advisor Savills has announced the appointment of Borja Sierra as CEO for its business in continental Europe to work with existing European Chairman, Simon Hope.
Jeremy Helsby, CEO of Savills plc, says: "Following a two-year period in which we have restructured our European business, we have made good progress this year and are now in a position for growth. Borja's role will be to grow our European business as we expand in our core geographies and widen our service offering."
Simon Hope, Chairman of Europe, comments: "I am delighted that Borja has returned from the US to focus on this area of the business which he is hugely familiar with from his previous head of country role. We will continue to drive the business forward, bettering our client offering and securing greater market share in Continental Europe."
Borja Sierra, CEO of Europe, adds: "I look forward to taking on this important role and using my European and international experience to take our business into a further level of excellence. I see, in particular, the UK and Asia as being the key drivers of real estate market demand worldwide, which puts us in a uniquely strong position to capitalise on our relationships as top advisor to investors and occupiers in Europe. There is a single strategy across Savills in all regions, and that is to be the best advisor to our clients everywhere."
