London, October 12, 2015 – Real Capital Analytics (RCA), the global commercial real estate data and analysis firm, has appointed Petra Blazkova as head of analytics for the Asia-Pacific region, a newly created position for the company.

“While RCA has been tracking the Asia-Pacific markets since 2007, this appointment represents the first of a number of new initiatives to augment our business there,” said Bob White, Founder and President of RCA. “Petra brings expert market knowledge and insight of the region which will significantly enhance our analysis and thought leadership. The goal is to follow her appointment by establishing an office in Asia for service and more research staff.”

Blazkova recently relocated from Singapore to London after working for four years at CBRE in Singapore, where she held various research roles in the brokerage and investment advisory arms. This followed nine years as a researcher covering European markets for JLL, King Sturge (now JLL) and Colliers International. She has a Masters degree in Real Estate Investment and Finance from University of Reading (Henley Business School) in the U.K. and is a graduate of Prague’s University of Economics.

Simon Mallinson, RCA’s Executive Managing Director for the Asia-Pacific and EMEA, said: “Petra is a great addition to our strong analytics team and will enhance the in-depth global coverage that RCA offers its clients through Jim Costello in the Americas and Tom Leahy in the EMEA region.”
