July has been an active month on the hiring and acquisition fronts for Avison Young. Most recently, the Toronto-based services firm has hired John Sikaitis, Nick Guglietta and Carl Caputo to lead the firm’s global innovation practice.
Effective immediately, Sikaitis becomes a principal of Avison Young and chief innovation officer; Guglietta becomes global practice lead, product development; and Caputo becomes global practice lead, data science. They will be based in Washington, DC, and will continue to work as a team.
All three join Avison Young from JLL in Washington, where Sikaitis was managing director of research, advisory and business development; Guglietta was senior director of product, data visualization and analytics; and Caputo was director of research, data and analytics.
“John, Nick and Carl’s industry experience, deep market expertise and bespoke collaborative approach with clients perfectly align with Avison Young’s strategic direction and our desire to find differentiated solutions for our clients’ property and business challenges,” said CEO Mark E. Rose.
The hiring of Sikaitis, Guglietta and Caputo comes on the heels of the appointment of London-based property markets analyst Nick Axford as a principal of Avison Young and global director of research earlier this month.
July began with Avison Young’s acquisition of Hamburg, Germany-based Völckers & Cie Immobilien GmbH Real Estate Advisors. The purchase represented the company’s first acquisition in Germany, and further expanded its full-service platform across the country.
