Real estate development and investment company Scannell Properties has appointed Heiko Richter as part of the company’s strategic growth plans across Europe.
Heiko, in his role as Managing Director, will be responsible for establishing and driving the business in Germany. His focus will be on serving key occupiers accounts and identifying strategic land-sites for both build-to-suit solutions and speculative logistics developments.
Germany is one of the six core countries that American-based Scannell Properties is targeting in Europe and Heiko brings over 20 years of experience in the market. Over the past eight years Heiko worked for Panattoni Germany in executive positions and was instrumental in establishing and securing a strong market position. Prior to this he worked in senior positions for both Prologis and DB Schenker.
Amaury Gariel, Managing Director Europe said:
“We are pleased to welcome Heiko to the team as we grow across Europe. Heiko brings with him a unique experience of German real estate and the logistics market which includes developing large and complex facilities.”
Heiko Richter added:
“I am excited to be working with Scannell Properties, a company that is highly regarded for its client service and delivering top quality logistics facilities. The German real estate market saw record take-up in the logistics sector in 2018. However, with e-commerce booming and occupiers competing for limited space, in-depth knowledge of core locations are vital to success. I am looking forward to sharing my local expertise to identify and seize untapped opportunities for Scannell Properties and our clients.”
