CBRE has hired Martina Muehlhofer to lead the Italian arm of its Capital Advisors business, as it aims to expand the finance-focussed division across Europe.
Muehlhofer has joined the firm from Deutsche Bank, where she has spent 13 years, most recently as a senior vice president for Italy. Previously, Muehlhofer spent more than three years in the corporate finance and M&A department in Frankfurt, three years in the real estate investment banking department in London and seven years in the general corporate finance and M&A division in Milan.
At CBRE, Muehlhofer will coordinate a team of three people in Milan, working within the 150-strong pan-European Capital Advisors business, which is led by Richard Dakin. CBRE Capital Advisors focusses on corporate finance, investment advisory and loan services.
“Italy is a very important market for Capital Advisors activity, and there is a huge amount of demand for real estate advice as clients seek greater optionality when making investment decisions,” said Dakin.
“The launch of Capital Advisors in Italy will allow us to better respond to our clients’ demands and will provide them with access to the latest innovations and the most efficient sources of financing, using the full power of the CBRE network,” added Alexandre Astier, head of capital markets, CBRE Italy.
