Broker Savills has announced the appointment of Francesca Cattagni as head of high street leasing, based in the Milan office.
Her focus will be on providing Savills team with strategic support in Milan and wider Italy, working amongst others with major retail brands. She has over 10 years’ experience in high street leasing at JLL, where she most recently worked as a high street retail agent, developing a new brand and unit research across Italy’s city high streets.
Silvia Segale, head of leasing, Savills Larry Smith, commented: 'The top-end high street market in Italy continues to outperform mass-market destinations, whether in Florence, Milan, Rome or Venice. We are seeing that more and more operators are willing to secure spaces in the most sought-after locations and Francesca’s vast experience will help us unlock the potential that this sector holds.'
