Javier Inchauspe joins Scannell Properties to lead Spanish Expansion

Scannell Properties, the real estate development and investment company specialising in large-scale industrial and logistics projects, has appointed Javier Inchauspe as Director General, Spain.

Inchauspe has over 20 years’ experience in the Spanish real estate sector. He joins from Merlin Properties where he worked for the last six years and was instrumental in the growth of the REIT. Prior to Merlin, he held senior positions at Gazeley and ING Real Estate Development focusing on industrial and logistics developments.

Inchauspe’s appointment is a key part of Scannell Properties’ strategic growth plan in Europe as it sees a real investment opportunity. In the first three months of this year, the company has made four further senior appointments; James Beatty, Jan Lenssen, Fabian Stratmann and Kelly Ladeira. Beatty, Lenssen and Stratmann join as Project and Construction Managers, with Beatty based in France and both Lenssen and Stratmann operating out of Germany. Ladeira, who will focus on Capital Deployment across the whole of Europe and the UK, is based in France.

Commenting on Inchauspe’s appointment, Amaury Gariel, Managing Director, Europe at Scannell Properties, said:

“We are delighted to welcome Javier to Scannell Properties as Director General, Spain, a country that is a key part of our European development plans. Javier’s expertise and knowledge of the Spanish logistics market will play an important role in our drive to supply high specification logistics units for our clients at rapid pace across Europe. Javier will be working alongside colleagues in the UK, France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands, where we now have a number of major projects under construction”.

Javier Inchauspe, Director General, Spain added:

“I am very excited to be joining Scannell Properties at a time when the logistics market is so buoyant. We are seeing record levels of leasing activity in Spain – two million sq m in 2020 alone. The stimulus that the Covid 19 pandemic has given to the e-commerce sector has opened up a scenario full of opportunities. I have no doubt that industrial and retail supply chain transformations will continue to act as the catalyst for growth in the logistics sector over the next few years.”

Founded in 1990, Scannell Properties specializes in promoting build-to-suit developments and speculative projects in the USA, Canada and Europe. It has completed a total volume of 7.8 million sq m across more than 360 real estate projects.
