Cushman & Wakefield, the global real estate services firm, has appointed Tomáš Némethy as a managing partner and head of Slovakia.
Némethy has more than 13 years of real estate experience in the local market. He joined Cushman & Wakefield in 2019, as head of the local valuation department.
He was in charge of building an entirely new team locally, as valuation services for the Slovak market were previously provided by the Czech team.
Before Cushman & Wakefield, he worked at Tatra Banka helping to underwrite real estate financing on the risk side. He also worked for CBRE where he was part of the investment team and later part of the valuation team.
Said Némethy: 'I am honoured to take over the leadership of the Slovak business, and I am grateful to Marian Fridrich for laying a solid foundation with remarkable business results over the past years.
'The local branch is standing on strong legs and its dedicated team of real estate professionals is ready to make it grow further.'
Jonathan Hallett, executive partner, head of Central & Eastern Europe, said: 'Tomáš is an experienced leader with a first-class team in Slovakia.
'He will be responsible for the further growth of our business and ensuring we continue to deliver the best service and strategies to support our domestic and international clients.'
Némethy will oversee a team of 38 professionals, based in Bratislava.
