Over the past few years, they have proved themselves to be leaders in the tenant rep arena and I have no doubt that combined with Savills regional strength and our new international partnership with Savills Studley in North America, they will carve out a leading position in the Singapore marketplace for Savills.”

In making the announcement, Marriott confirmed that Marcus Loo, who brings along with him 15 years of expertise in office leasing, tenant representation, will assume the position of Executive Director and heads up the expanded business unit within Savills Singapore. The newly combined team is one of the largest in Singapore and will focus on commercial office and business park space.

The team will be equipped with specialist tenant advisory capability, having one of the largest market shares in advising many of the leading financial institutions, MNC’s and local businesses, including some of the largest new lettings, renewals and restructures.

Commenting on the move, Marcus Loo said, “We are delighted to be joining such a strong business with a clear intent to grow in Singapore on the back of a strong Asia Pacific platform. The three of us have been together for a number of years and the proposition to build an even stronger business was attractive especially given the associations Savills has in Asia, North America and Europe.”
