International real estate advisor Savills has promoted Laura Salisbury Jones to a newly created Central London and European Cross Border role within its retail division.

Based in London, Laura specialises in advising international brands on entering the UK market via London and assisting retailers with European roll outs.  In her new role, she will be responsible for retailer target identification, ongoing retailer and landlord relations and managing cross border acquisition mandates across Europe. 

The announcement follows Savills acquisition of Larry Smith Italia, a leading shopping centre and out of town retail management and leasing business in Italy, and the promotion of director Larry Brennan to head of Savills European retail agency. 

Larry Brennan, head of European retail agency at Savills, comments: “Our retail business in continental Europe has gone from strength to strength over the last 12 months and remains a key focus for Savills, as the recent acquisition of Larry Smith Italia demonstrates.  Laura’s new role underlines our commitment to expanding and developing our European retail offer, particularly in the core markets of Italy, Spain, France and Germany.”

Laura Salisbury Jones, associate director, Central London and European Cross Border,  adds: “I look forward to working with Savills retail teams throughout Europe to streamline our offer, further ensuring the international brands we work with receive a consistent and best in class service across the board.  This approach will also allow us to identify new business leads and opportunities for cross selling services, in line with our ongoing European retail expansion strategy.”
