Savills has announced the appointment of Peter Levins as Industrial and Logistics Divisional Director. Peter joins Savills with over 20 years’ experience as a Chartered Surveyor in Commercial Property under his belt.
Speaking of his appointment, Peter Levins commented:
“This is a fantastic opportunity for me. Savills are renowned for the best-in-class service they provide all their clients, be they occupiers, developers and/or investors of logistics property, so I am delighted to be part of such a well-established outfit and I’m looking forward to bringing my own knowledge and experience to the table. The team & I are committed to providing an all-encompassing logistics and industrial service. Working on behalf of developers, investors, land owners, corporate occupiers, logistics companies and public-sector bodies, everything we do is backed by the extensive knowledge and up-to-date insight of Savills research team.”
In the Dublin logistics market strong occupier demand combined with all-time low vacancy rates have been the key drivers of a return to new development over the last 2 years. Prime rents are likely to continue rising in the short term due to the strong levels of demand and, as build costs escalate, it will be the early movers in 2019 who get best value. We want to be on hand to advise and assist developers and other stakeholders who are or want to be active in this market”.
Gavin Butler, Director, Savills Industrial & Logistics commented:
“Peter has had a stellar career path to date and his insight into Ireland’s industrial & logistics market is second-to-none. Peter’s appointment is another step in our planned continued expansion of our Industrial division, which has grown from a 3-person operation 12 months ago, to a 6-person strong team today, with further appointments and recruitments planned over the next 12 months”.
