SIOR European Region Chapter announces new President and Executive Committee

The European Chapter of the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR) has elected Iain Finnegan SIOR, FSCI, FRICS, and Managing Director of Finnegan Menton, as President. Finnegan succeeds past president, Andrew Smith, SIOR, FRICS, and will serve from May 2024 until April 2026.


As well as a new President for the European Chapter, there are also new Executive Committee appointments, including Tobias Schultheiß SIOR, FRICS, Managing Partner of Blackbird Real Estate as Vice President, Nicola Mottershaw SIOR, Partner – Head of Occupier Advisory at Vail Williams, who remains Treasurer and Michael Pain SIOR, MRICS, Partner and Head of Tenant Representation at Carter Jonas, as Secretary.

Finnegan of Finnegan Menton, a Dublin-based, full service firm of Chartered Surveyors offering clients bespoke property solutions in the commercial and residential sector, said about his appointment: „I am delighted to be taking on the role of President of the SIOR European Chapter at a time when the SIOR network is thriving, more in demand than ever as clients grapple with the myriad of challenges and opportunities in the market today. The SIOR designation has always been a mark of excellence, its advisors trusted to support clients and work together to manage property matters globally. I have benefitted first-hand from being a member and am proud to be leading its further expansion across Europe, beyond the 26 countries where we already have a presence.“

„The key areas of focus for my presidency will be growth as well as diversity and the next generation. We are working hard to encourage more members representing different genders and ethnic minorities to join us and we also want to inspire the next generation, using our SIOR Foundation programme as well as providing a platform for them to learn and shape the industry. We're giving four students a free, all-expenses paid place at our SIOR International Conference, 17-19 July in Berlin. I will also continue to foster the close links with our SIOR colleagues in the USA and beyond,“ he added.

Immediate past president, Andrew Smith SIOR, FRICS, said: „It has been a privilege to lead the European Chapter, working with the team in Washington DC, London and throughout Europe. We have grown our membership in numbers and diversity, and increased the number of deals done across the network. As I hand the leadership of the European Chapter over to Iain, he will no doubt continue its success and development.“
