Real estate development and investment company Scannell Properties is set to intensify its growth plans in Italy with the appointment of Francesco Nappo.

Scannell Properties is pleased to announce that Francesco Nappo will take on the role of Italy Expansion Director and joins their team from CBRE Italy where he held the role of Head of Logistics Advisory & Transaction Services.

His role will include identifying and securing land for development in key logistic hubs for Italy.

Amaury Gariel, Managing Director, Europe said, “I am very pleased to welcome Francesco to the team. Having worked alongside Francesco in the past, I have seen first-hand his commitment to client needs and his
in-depth knowledge of major Italian cities. There are extremely strong fundamentals for growth in Italy, driven in part by the relative immaturity of e-commerce infrastructure. Francesco will bring to our team, a deep understanding of these dynamics and the impacts they have on logistics real estate requirements locally.”

Francesco Nappo, Italy Expansion Director added:

“I am excited to start my journey with Scannell Properties, the company has ambitious plans in Italy all rooted in a firm commitment to deliver optimum solutions for clients. Given that Italy is one of the major economies in the world, it’s a true opportunity to focus on a growing e-commerce market. It is rapidly changing and we will see in parallel a transformation of traditional domestic supply chain networks. I am looking forward to working with both clients and colleagues to take advantage of the opportunities ahead.”
