Strategic real estate advisor Avison Young has announced the appointment of Principal Dominic Amey as Managing Director of its London Markets team to spearhead the rapid growth of capability across the capital and continue to establish the company as the preferred service provider and a challenger brand in this major marketplace. As part of Avison Young’s growth strategy, the firm will be targeting new hires to join the existing London Investment, Leasing, Occupier Advisory and Flexible Workspace teams, to support clients across the capital. These teams will work closely with the wider business, offering clients an enhanced level of expert advice, with an integrated, insight-driven approach that includes its industry-leading Planning, Business Rates and Project Management services.
In leading the London Markets team, Dominic will focus on driving growth in the key areas of brand presence, revenue and personnel, as well as an emphasis on cross selling with other UK business groups and with the wider global business, to continue strengthening client relationships.
Dominic draws on his 25 years’ experience in the Central London market, having worked across both the West End and the City of London, and has an extensive track record in the acquisition and disposal of commercial real estate.
He joined Avison Young as a Principal in 2021 to help grow Avison Young's Central London Investment business. Prior to this, Dominic was a Director at Colliers where he worked for 18 years, heading up the West End Investment team from 2012, and then establishing and heading up the City Investment team in 2018.
