Avison Young hires Mark Headon as confidence in office market rises

Adviser will help drive growth of firm’s occupier services and office leasing businesses

Mark Headon has joined Avison Young, the independent property adviser, as divisional director in agency, focusing on offices.

In his new role with Avison Young, which rebranded from GVA Donal O Buachalla last September, Mr Headon will be responsible for both landlord and tenant mandates and will help to drive the further growth of the firm’s occupier services and office leasing businesses. Mr Headon previously worked with Knight Frank.

Working with long-standing national clients, Mr Headon will also deal with the many international Avison Young clients locating and investing in Dublin.

Fergal Burke, principal and managing director of Avison Young, said: "We are genuinely excited to welcome Mark to the team. He brings a breadth of experience in the Dublin office market and he is known and respected for his knowledge, expertise and commercial advice, at a time when such advice was never more valued by occupier or landlord clients.


“We are very confident about the resilience of the office market and we believe that investing in the best talent, with people like Mark, will ensure that we can continue to provide our clients with exceptional service, providing insights and advantage and adding real value.”
