Hassan has a proven track record unlocking those opportunities and we are delighted to welcome him to the team,' said Jan-Willem Bastijn,head of EMEA Capital Markets at Cushman & Wakefield.

Said Farran: 'In the context of a changing economic landscape in Europe, Middle East is once again an increasingly important source of capital for the real estate sector. Our vision is to be recognised as an international market leader.

'I look forward to deepening relationships with our current and potential clients and offering the collaborative culture and deep sector expertise for which Cushman & Wakefield is known.'
