Cushman & Wakefield names new regional managing partner

Stephen Miles has stepped up to replace Keith Hardman as regional managing partner for Yorkshire & North East at Cushman & Wakefield. Hardman has held the position since 2007.

Leeds-based Miles is a development adviser specialising in urban regeneration and mixed-use property, he has been with the firm for more than 20 years.

Cushman & Wakefield employs 80 people in Yorkshire and the North East. Miles will continue in his role as head of the Northern land, development and planning team. He said: “Cushman & Wakefield is a key player in the Yorkshire and North East property market, with talented specialists operating across a number of skill lines. I am keen to use the role to bring together our collective strengths to meet the challenges and opportunities facing our clients locally, to deliver their ambitions, and increase our impact across the region.”

Keith Hardman said: “I have worked closely with Stephen for the last 17 years and he is an outstanding adviser with an abundance of the qualities needed for the regional managing partner role. Along with all colleagues across the region, I look forward to supporting him as he leads and grows the team, ensuring that we continue to inspire our people and deliver outstanding outcomes for clients. Stephen played a leading role in pulling together and delivering the Future of Cities series last year, which outlined our vision for how Leeds, along with other major UK cities, will evolve over the next two decades.”

Hardman will remain in his national role as UK head of development and strategic advisory, part of the firm’s UK specialist markets division.

Jon Leedham, head of Cushman & Wakefield’s UK regional network, said: “Keith has led our Yorkshire team for the last 17 years, playing a fundamental role in the team’s growth during that time. I would like to thank him for his dedication and the incredible contribution he has made to the team in Leeds. While he is passing over the day-to-day responsibility of regional managing partner, he will continue to play a pivotal national client-facing advisory role at Cushman & Wakefield, and support Stephen as he takes on the position of regional head. I very much look forward to working with Stephen in his new role and wish him every success.”
