Knight Frank appoints new European leadership team

Knight Frank, the global property advisor, has appointed a new leadership team in Europe to strengthen its growth strategy and structure across the continent.

Anthony Duggan, Knight Frank’s head of strategy, has been appointed into a newly created role as chair of Europe.

In this role he will work alongside, and build upon, the work already underway from the property advisor’s European managing directors, Mike Bowden and Mark Harvey.

With this new structure, Knight Frank said it was investing further in building 'a strong and sustainable platform for growth in Europe'.

The new leadership team will begin operating from December 2023.

William Beardmore-Gray, senior partner and group chair at Knight Frank, said: 'As a business we have ambitious expansion goals across Europe and many new and exciting opportunities on the horizon.

'Having worked closely with Anthony for many years, I have no doubt that in his new role he will continue to build on our market-leading position alongside Mike and Mark. Their combined expertise will ensure we continue to provide the best service possible for our clients across key markets.'

Duggan commented: 'It is a privilege to be asked to lead Knight Frank’s European business alongside Mark and Mike at what is a time of significant change and opportunity both in the European property market and across the industry as a whole.

'Thanks to a fantastic team, we have seen remarkable growth in recent years, and I look forward to continuing to build on that platform and delivering sustained growth whilst ensuring we remain best-in-class partners to our clients.'

Duggan joined Knight Frank in September 2016 and has helped to develop the firm’s strategic agenda across the UK, the wider global network as well as leading specific group projects around Knight Frank’s People and ESG agendas.

He will remain chair of Knight Frank’s ESG Taskforce, steering the strategic direction of the firm's environment, social and governance agenda both internally and externally.
