Francesca’s immediate focus will be on providing Savills team with strategic support in Milan and wider Italy, working amongst others with major retail brands. Francesca has over ten years’ experience in high street leasing at JLL, where she most recently worked as a high street retail agent, developing a new brand and unit research across Italy’s city high streets.
Gianni Flammini, Head of Savills Italy, said: “We are delighted that Francesca has joined the Savills team. Her experience in the sector will allow us to provide current and future clients with high level advice in an increasingly crowded marketplace.”
Silvia Segale, Head of Leasing, Savills Larry Smith, added: “The top-end high street market in Italy continues to outperform mass-market destinations, whether in Florence, Milan, Rome or Venice. We are seeing that more and more operators are willing to secure spaces in the most sought-after locations and Francesca’s vast experience will help us unlock the potential that this sector holds.”
Commenting on her appointment, Francesca Cattagni said: “I look forward to working with Gianni, Silvia and the Italian team to help expand our experience in the high street leasing sector, an area that is destined to grow further over the coming years.”
