Marie Hickey
Director, Commercial Research
Savills UK

Marie heads up the Savills Hospitality and Retail research team in the UK and has close to 15 years of experience. Her focus is understanding wider global drivers and consumer trends in order to assess what this means for occupational and investment markets across Europe and other key destination markets globally. Her approach is always forward looking in terms of the opportunities and potential challenges shaping the evolving hospitality and retail landscape. Marie has had a special interest in the Serviced Apartment market both in the UK and globally, being a lead commentator on the sector since 2005.

Client work focusses on the assessment of current and future hospitality and retail supply, in terms of assessing feasibility and demand, but also more importantly exploring the options available in terms of maximising returns and in turn enhancing the user appeal of traditional hospitality spaces. This has involved assessing the potential of introducing third party F&B operators and co-working space to add to the vibrancy of the existing hotel offer.
