Commercial real estate veteran David Davidson will step down as chairman of Cushman & Wakefield Scotland.

Mr Davidson, a surveyor, yesterday confirmed plans to retire on social media platform Linked-In. Mr Davidson, who recently turned 60, said he had “decided to join the growing ranks of ‘young retirees’ – from April 2023”.

He will leave Cushman & Wakefield after a 31-year career with the firm. During this time advised on over £1.4bn of transactions, including over 30 in Scotland worth over £20m. He was also recognized as one of the first Scottish investment advisers to focus on German funds looking to acquire assets in UK regions and has directly handled over £450m of acquisitions and disposals for clients from that country.

Mr. Davidson will succeed the Chairman and Chief Capital Officer markets Scotland in the firm of Stephen Beebe. Mr. Beebe has been with Cushman & Wakefield for over 17 years.

In a statement on Linked-In, Mr. Davidson said he will miss helping others develop their careers after retirement. He plans to continue his role as a school teacher with MCR Pathways and do client-side consulting work.
