Bert Angel to advise Palmira Capital Partners in the Benelux

PALMIRA CAPITAL PARTNERS, the Frankfurt based investment and asset manager of industrial real estate, has announced that, effective from April 1 2014, it has appointed Bert Angel as member of its European Advisory Board (EAB).

The EAB serves as an independent non-executive council to Palmira Capital Partners and aims to provide frequent advice on the company's European expansion. In his new role, Bert will advise the company on the further growth of its investment and asset management activities in Belgium and the Netherlands and on the development of Palmira's relationship management initiative for strategic customers across Europe. He will join Ranald Hahn, who has recently been appointed member of the EAB.

"Bert is a seasoned logistics professional. He maintains deep relationships with a range of national and international customers in the market. At Palmira our vision is to create a truly pan-European industrial property manager with the ability to lever returns through active tenant management. Bert's advice will play a crucial role in putting this vision to work", said Alexander Hoff, Palmira's founder and managing partner.

"Apart from his broad tenant base we will also be able to benefit from Bert's knowledge of the Dutch and Belgium industrial real estate markets. Bert can contribute enormously in gaining traction in those markets", added Peter Schuijlenburg, a Partner with the company and managing its European expansion.

Before setting up his own advisory business in 2012 Bert Angel worked 13 years as a senior vice president at Prologis, the US Industrial REIT. As their European account management executive he was instrumental in building a broad international logistics customer network where he maintained contacts at top level. Since 2012, Bert Angel has advised various logistics property players including Gazeley, Schiphol Development Company and MG Real Estate.
