The race to sign new tenants is hotting up, given the activity in the UK commercial property sector of late. London-based Colliers has recruited three senior directors to its retail and F&B team. They are Aron Samra and Erin McDonald who will join from rival CBRE Group and Flora Young from another rival JLL. They will start at Colliers’ UK head office over the summer.

McDonald has over 10 years' experience in the London retail market, notably advising the Cadogan Estate on its retail holdings, as well as the Crown Estate, the Broadgate Estate on behalf of British Land, and a number of key landlords in the West End.
