Cushman & Wakefield appoints new India head

The global property consultancy has hired former DTZ India head Anshul Jain as managing director for the country

Global real estate consultancy Cushman & Wakefield has appointed Anshul Jain as managing director for its operations in India.

Jain, a former head of DTZ India, has replaced Sanjay Dutt who left the firm last month after working for more than four years in the senior leadership role.

Jain will start his role from next month. He will report to Stuart Roberts, chief executive for Cushman & Wakefield, Asia Pacific.

“I am extremely pleased that Anshul will be joining us to lead our business through the next phase of growth for India, and accelerate the great work already underway across all our service lines,” said Roberts in a company statement. “He is well known across our client base in Asia Pacific and the UK, as the former head of DTZ India, and associate partner for international investments for Cushman & Wakefield in London” said Stuart.

Jain has over 20 years of experience in the real estate industry. According to reports in the Indian press, Jain quit from his position as the chief executive of DTZ India after the property consultancy’s $2 billion acquisition of Cushman & Wakefield last year. Now, as the head of the merged entity which operates under the Cushman & Wakefield brand, he will be leading the efforts to further grow the firm’s business across the country.

“Cushman and Wakefield is one of the most respected brands around the world,” Jain said on his new appointment. “It's my privilege to lead the firm in India which is known for excellence in client service and has some of the country's best talent. I look forward with excitement to work with the team and take the firm to bigger successes in India.”
