Mileway has appointed three new country heads for France, Germany and the Nordics.
Blackstone’s €8bn+ last-mile logistics platform has recruited Fabien Fridrici to lead France having previously been regional director at SEGRO for 10 years. Prior to that he spent seven years at JLL as an associate director.
Georg Starck has been recruited as country head for Germany Country Head, having most recently served as chief investment officer at HOOPP-backed Verdion. Prior to Verdion he worked at Schroder Property Investment Management, ING Real Estate Investment Management and Alpha Industrial.
Tomas Beck will lead Mileway’s business across Denmark, Finland and Sweden as Nordics country head. Before joining Mileway, he headed up the Nordic business at Cromwell Property Group. Prior to that he was responsible for the real estate portfolio at First Swedish National Pension Fund, AP1, and he has also held roles with Norwegian insurance group Storebrand and GE Real Estate.
Blackstone began building up its urban logistics portfolio in 2017 alongside M7 Real Estate. It was launched as a separate business in September last year under the leadership of former Goodman European Logistics Fund manager Emmanuel Van der Stichele. It owns and operates 1,300 last mile assets comprising more than 115m sq ft of space across 10 European countries.
Van der Stichele said: “Building a best-in-class team is essential to our strategy of establishing an institutional quality last mile logistics real estate business. I am delighted we have attracted three distinguished real estate leaders to head these key markets.
“Fabien, Georg and Tomas all have extensive and varied experience in logistics real estate and will bring deep, market-specific knowledge to Mileway as we continue to expand our business across Europe. We see demand from occupiers for last mile logistics real estate continue to grow as they seek to get closer to their customers and enable faster and more efficient delivery.”
