“I am truly excited and motivated by this opportunity, as I personally feel that Knight Frank has the strongest residential brand in the world. With an almost even split in terms of the business between residential and commercial, there is a great synergy between the two business lines,” said McKintosh on his move.

Prior to joining Knight Frank, McKintosh previously worked for well-known counterparts such as Savills and JLL, among others.

His journey in the real estate sector began in his native United Kingdom, where he initially focused on selling residential properties in London to international investors from Asia and the Middle East. His career has since taken him across various regions, with a specific emphasis on the Middle East, Asia, and Africa over the past 18 years.

During this time, he has contributed significantly to notable projects globally, including Hanover Bond, Royal Warwick Square, West End Gate, Eden Tower Frankfurt, Grand Tower, Santa Marta, The Pinnacle, The Dubai Hills Estate, and One Palm Dubai.

Headquartered in London, Knight Frank has 450+ offices across 53 territories and more than 20,000 people. In the MENA region, the firm has offices the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, and Egypt.
