Gerald Eve has hired Marcus Kinsella as head of hotel operational agency and partner of the property consultancy firm.
Kinsella has twelve years of industry experience, over nine years of which focused on the hotel operational transactions and development market.
He has worked on deals including the sale of Bow Street Magistrates Court, now the Nomad Covent Garden, for which he acted on behalf of private clients. He also sold a consented hotel site in Victoria for 4c Hotels to City ID and The Premier Inn in New Marlborough Yard, which comprised a forward funding sale to LaSalle.
Earlier this year, Gerald Eve was acquired by US-based full service commercial real estate services business, Newmark Group.
