Since 2014 Ukraine has suffered overall economic decline and political uncertainty which has led to some investors and developers putting their activity on hold. Via this affiliation, Cushman & Wakefield has underlined its commitment to the Ukrainian demonstrating the improving perception of the market by international investors and corporate occupiers.

Nick Cotton, Managing Director of Cushman & Wakefield in Ukraine, said: “Ukraine has significant natural, industrial and human resources and is back on the global investment map. It offers an alternative to more mature markets, providing an acceptable balance between the risks and returns of investing in business processes and real estate."

“Our affiliation with Cushman & Wakefield has extended our client base and the services that we offer. As a result, we are growing our existing team and are actively recruiting as we seek to serve this wider client base. We remain dedicated to our core values – established over 23 years - of integrity, being committed to cutting-edge ideas and client orientated service excellence”.

Jonathan Hallett, Head of Central & Eastern Europe, Cushman & Wakefield said: “Cushman & Wakefield has a very strong presence across CEE and we are delighted to have confirmed our affiliate relationship with DTZ Ukraine. Together with similar affiliations we have announced in recent months in Romania, Bulgaria and Macedonia, we are demonstrating our commitment to delivering outstanding client service and pursuing further growth throughout the CEE region.”

John Forrester, Chief Executive EMEA, Cushman & Wakefield, said: “Our strong and long lasting relationships with affiliates across EMEA extends delivery into markets where Cushman & Wakefield does not currently have a wholly-owned presence. This benefits both local and global clients who gain access to our global network and local knowledge respectively.”
