LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cushman & Wakefield (NYSE: CWK) has appointed James Sheppard to head the
firm’s new Life Sciences team, based in London. Cushman & Wakefield’s
Life Sciences team will provide full-service real estate advice to the
life sciences sector, including site selection and design, lease and
portfolio management, operational advice, financing and capital markets.

Sheppard brings to the firm a wealth of experience in the
identification, design and operation of Life Science facilities from the
startup phase to maturity. He will lead and develop Cushman &
Wakefield’s existing relationships in the sector in London and across
the UK with a focus on major development projects.

Charles Dady, International Partner and Head of UK Landlord Services,
Cushman & Wakefield, said: “The UK is at the forefront of scientific
innovation and the confluence of life sciences and technology is
gathering pace. To provide insightful advice, the real estate sector
needs a deeper understanding of the dynamics affecting occupiers and the
ecosystems within which they operate. We are therefore delighted that
James is joining us to work closely with our agency teams and
specialists in healthcare, education and the public sector.”

Sheppard said: “The demand for lab space is growing exponentially and it
is imperative that the industry seeks the right advice to manage this
