Specialist Markets

Simon M Johnson works for CBRE in the Specialist Market division occasionally straying over to CBRE Hotels. He is responsible for driving a wider awareness of the experience, capabilities and scale of these specialist practices within the world’s largest real estate advisory firm with a client base of pubs, hotels and other hospitality and healthcare companies.

Prior to joining CBRE Simon was at UBS for nine years in the Equities, Investment Banking and Private Banking businesses, at all times focusing on relationships with individuals, directors, owners and shareholders of Hospitality businesses. He began his banking career at Kleinwort Benson and BZW (which was taken over by Credit Suisse).

Outside of work to get away from it all, he enjoys spending time in pubs and restaurants and collects books on the history of hotels and other hospitality companies. He lives in London and Northamptonshire with his wife, two children a Sporting Lucas Terrier and a rough-coated Jack Russell. He is a founder member of the IHSF.
