King Sturge has set up its first Bulgarian office in the country’s capital Sofia.

Andrew Peirson, King Sturge’s head of agency in Prague, will lead the five person team.

It will initially focus on a number of retained projects including the marketing of retail and industrial schemes for ZBS, Bulgaria Property Developments and electronics retailer Densi.

King Sturge’s Sofia office will provide agency, valuation, investment, property management, facilities management and consultancy services.

It will also work closely with the company’s offices in Romania, Croatia, Hungary, Turkey and Serbia.
