CBRE Appoints Tech, Media and Telecoms Sector Lead for Continental Europe

Media Contact: Irene Martini

Global real estate advisor, CBRE, has appointed Belinda Norman-Walker to lead its technology, media and telecoms (TMT) sector vertical for Continental Europe.  

In her new role, Belinda, based in Amsterdam, will be responsible for further developing and delivering the firm’s TMT sector strategy across the region, which is spearheaded by CBRE’s Head of TMT for UK and Europe, Mike Gedye. She will work alongside country management teams as well as global and regional industry specialists across the region to further elevate CBRE’s position as the market leader for Advisory and Transaction services.

Belinda joins from Uber, where she has led commercial real estate services for its EMEA business since 2019. She brings more than 20 years’ experience in the industry and has a proven track record of managing portfolios of both leased and owned properties, alongside financial modelling, change management and workplace strategy.

Einar Schiefloe, Head of Occupier Services, Continental Europe at CBRE said: “Belinda brings substantial client-side experience, giving her the ability to truly understand the evolving real estate needs for tech, media and telecoms companies. At a time of significant change, this will prove invaluable to CBRE’s clients and together, with the existing team, will allow us to continue providing best-in-class service and advice.”

“Real estate decision making has become a boardroom mainstay for many organisations as they consider enhanced cost management whilst recognising that offices, in particular, now play a key role in the employee value proposition,” added Belinda Norman-Walker, CBRE’s Head of TMT for Continental Europe. “This is particularly prevalent in sectors where the war for talent continues to be highly competitive and I am really looking forward to bringing my expertise to CBRE and cementing its position in the sector.”
