Property consultancy CBRE has appointed Hugh Hamilton (pictured) as Senior Director, Southeast Asia for its Global Corporate Services (GCS) business.
An expert on corporate real estate in Asia, Hamilton's responsibilities will include transaction management, occupier consulting, facilities management and project management.
Based out of Singapore, he previously worked with DTZ as Senior Director and Head of Occupier Services in Asia Pacific.
According to Pauline Goh, CBRE's CEO for Singapore & South East Asia, Hamilton will work closely with the region's GCS team to build and maintain the company's corporate services business market lead in Southeast Asia.
Hamilton will officially join CBRE in December and succeeds Rhys Harvey, who relocates to Sydney in February to take on the post of Deputy Managing Director for CBRE’s Pacific GCS business.
