Johnson, who will take on the position of partner, will be responsible for “sourcing and identifying stock that will meet [KFIM’s] clients’ targeted investment returns”, said Kevin Aitchison, CEO of KFIM.
Prior to joining KFIM, Johnson was at Cushman & Wakefield, focusing on investment in London, and before this was a partner at property consultancy Matthews & Goodman.
Johnson has over 17 years experience, with recent projects including the sale of the Leadenhall Building for more than £1 billion.
Aitchison said: “A key part of the KFIM strategy has been to strengthen our partnerships in the Asian market, as well as continuing to service our growing UK institutional investment requirements.”
He added: “Following the recent closing of our first two acquisitions on behalf of Korean institutional investors, and new allocations of capital from UK investors last year, we identified David Johnson as someone who could provide additional depth and strength to our existing team.”
