Savills Investment Management (Savills IM), the international real estate investment manager, has appointed Eleanor McMillan as investment director – residential.

Eleanor’s appointment is part of Savills IM’s ambition to become a leading manager in the European residential sector. She will report to Jon Crossfield, Head of Strategic Partnerships, who will lead Savills IM’s continued growth in residential.

She joins a team tasked with expanding Savills IM’s capability and service to clients across Europe in a sector that is increasingly gaining traction with institutional investors.

“The living sector in all its forms is fast becoming an investment destination of choice for many institutional clients. It is an area in which we have been active for some years across Europe and Asia, and Eleanor’s appointment as a senior member of our team is a key step towards further expanding this. We are delighted to welcome her.”
