COPENHAGEN, 18th February 2020 Global real estate advisor, CBRE has appointed Colin Waddell as Managing Director, CBRE Finland and Norway. Colin has been Managing Director of CBRE Finland for the past year and a half, having previously headed various business operations for CBRE in Central Europe and the UK for 15 years. He will now lead both businesses, splitting his time between Oslo and Helsinki and continuing to work closely with the leadership teams in Sweden and Denmark.

The new leadership structure strategically strengthens CBRE’s newly created pan-Nordic Capital Markets platform, which is being led by Sami Kiehelä as well as the pan-Nordic team of research experts providing in depth data, market analysis and thought leadership, being led by Amanda Welander. The combined leadership role will enable CBRE to provide a fully integrated range of services to clients who are looking to take advantage of the highly active real estate market in the region. 

The appointment follows John Solberg’s decision to leave CBRE after enjoying a highly successful career at CBRE spanning 12 years. He formally joined the business in 2016, through CBRE’s acquisition of Atrium, where he had been on the Board of Directors since 2008 and Managing Director since 2010.

Colin Waddell, Managing Director, CBRE Finland and Norway commented:
“It has been an honour and pleasure working with my Finnish colleagues and I am looking forward to extending that experience to include Norway. Finland and Norway are both stable, transparent and liquid property markets, which naturally attracts domestic and international occupiers and investors.  We are hoping to unlock some of the cross-border potential that exists between the two countries as well as the wider Nordic region.”

Marco Hekman, Divisional President, Advisory Services, Continental Europe at CBRE commented: 
“I am delighted that Colin will be leading our Finland and Norway teams going forward. The Nordics are an important geographic focus for us, and our clients and Colin’s leadership experience and collaborative approach are exemplary.”
