Colliers International further expands City team with new Director

James Nicholls joins from BNP Paribas Real Estate

Global real estate advisor, Colliers International, has announced the appointment of James Nicholls as a director within its growing London City investment team.

James began his career in property in 2007 as a graduate at Strutt & Parker, qualifying as a surveyor within the City investment and development team in 2010 and becoming an associate partner in 2015. Strutt & Parker were acquired by BNP Paribas Real Estate in July 2017.

James has represented both international and UK based clients on acquisitions and disposals in Central London, with a particular focus on investors from Asia-Pacific.

Recent successes include the acquisition of 110 Cannon Street, EC4, for £93 million on behalf of a private Chinese investor and being part of the disposal team for Quick & Tower House, EC2 on behalf of Aberdeen Standard Investments.

“James’ appointment further cements our ambition to grow our City offering, which is going from strength to strength following the expansion of the transactional team in October last year. Working alongside Dominic Amey, James will continue to service existing client relationships from APAC and the UK, whilst also working to secure new business opportunities for both domestic and overseas investors,” said Tony Horrell, CEO UK & Ireland at Colliers International.

Jack Harrison also joins Colliers’ City team as a graduate, following two nine-month placement in Colliers’ national capital markets and valuations teams.
